Published by Paul D Carrier
Ellsworth"s 180 Landings concerns itself with four
basic causes for landings: (1) political intervention, (2)
punitive actions, (3) protection of diplomatic mission,
nationals, and their property, and (4) humanitarian. Many
of these landings were solely Marine Corps affairs, a number
were joint with Navy personnel. international cooperation
with one or more foreign powers characterize some of these.
The effect of landing Marines on international law has
long been a matter of legal speculation. The virtual abandonment
of the Monroe Doctrine, the dropping of the Platt
Amendment, the elimination of the "Open Door'4 policy in
China, and the development of internat:ional organizations
such as the Organization of American States and the United
Nations have created a new climate in international relations.
