Question and answer
How did American foreign policy goals shape the American approach to the war?
Before World War I, America the country that would intervene with most issues. America was described as the nation who "polices the world". [ However, after World War I, America had dug a very deep hole of economic despair for themselves, and after this the nation did not want to hurt themselves into another war. For about fifteen years after World War I, America's foreign policy became very
isolationist. They sought to keep themselves out of other problems around the globe, and tend to themselves. To support these claims, many historical pieces of legislation and actions are present. Legislation that supported American isolationism after World War I were Immigration Acts, which sets quotas on how many people of each race could immigrate to America. This was established in order to supply jobs to mostly Americans, and Americans only, and have only "higher" class immigrants immigrate to America. Other examples include the Neutrality Acts, which forbade Americans merchants from interacting with belligerent ships. Yet another piece of support includes America's carelessness to the sinking of the Lusitania, the British ship, or even Germany's violation of the Sussex pledge, as Germany continued to sink American ships until America finally came into action. With this being said, these are all examples that support the belief that America was a country of isolationism after World War I. ]
