Johnson Doctrine

Johnson's 1965 State of the Union.

The Johnson Doctrine, enunciated by U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson after the United States' intervention in the Dominican Republic in 1965,[1] declared that domestic revolution in the Western Hemisphere would no longer be a local matter when "the object is the establishment of a Communist dictatorship".[2] It is an extension of the Eisenhower and Kennedy Doctrines.
