  Big stick Diplomacy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Big Stick Diplomacy was the catch-phrase for describing U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt's corollary to the Monroe Doctrine, which stated that the United States should assume international police power in the Western Hemisphere.
Big Stick Diplomacy, a nickname coined by Roosevelt in quoting the old African proverb “Speak softly and carry a big stick, and you will go far,” was the foreign policy that was later called the Roosevelt Corollary.
Eventually, the phrase “Big Stick” was used in reference to any foreign policy that made negotiations with diplomatic grace, backed by the possible threat of military force.

 The Adventures of Chester: Diplomacy Archives
Clausewitz's famous dictum that war is a continuation of diplomacy by other means defines both the challenge and the limits of diplomacy.
The popular methods of portraying diplomacy include its being on the opposite end of a one-dimensional axis that includes military action on its far end, and of characterizing diplomatic initiatives as merely talk and not action.
As Kissinger mentions, diplomacy is not rhetoric; the other side of the negotiating table will not be swayed by the eloquence of domestic speeches.

The ships, commonly known as the "Great White Fleet" due to their white-painted hulls, called in ports the world over, impressing foreign dignitaries with the appearance of great power.
This was the last great hurrah for the age of white ships, buff masts and high diplomacy on the high seas.
As soon as the ships returned from the cruise they were stripped of their fancywork and much of their bridgework, painted gray, and had their pole masts replaced by functional but unsightly cage masts.

WEST CORNWALL, Conn. —It was called "The Big Stick." Between 1890 and 1930, we sent our armed forces to intervene in Latin America more than 30 times.

 The Seattle Times: Mariners: Free-agent pickup hasn't materialized
While president of the United States in the early 1900s, Theodore Roosevelt employed his famed "Big Stick diplomacy" in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, sending in troops to help protect American interests in the area.
A century later, however, the man who ranks as one of that city's most famous natives — Mariners third baseman Adrian Beltre — is neither speaking softly nor carrying a big stick.
After concluding an 0-for-12 series against the Angels on Wednesday — which dropped his batting average to.221 — Beltre declined for the second straight day to talk with reporters, leaving it to others in the Mariners clubhouse to state his case for him.

Whereas Theodore Roosevelt had employed “Big Stick” diplomacy to bend weaker nations to his will, William Howard Taft preferred to use money as leverage.
Taft put his new policy to the test in Manchuria, where he offered to purchase and develop the Manchurian Railway to prevent Russia and Japan from seizing control of it and colonizing the region.
After these unsuccessful attempts at diplomacy, Taft devoted himself to domestic matters, making trust-busting his top priority.
