ABSTRACT
The article discusses the relationship between politics and small wars, drawing on the actions of former U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt and his secretary of war, Elihu Root. An international police power in the Monroe Doctrine by means of Roosevelt's 1904 Corollary to the doctrine was embedded by the two statesmen. Some guidelines for the practitioners of small wars who draw from the Roosevelt era are given.
