I'm pretty sure 13 is b. TR wanted to keep everyone under control in Latin America and other places by wielding the big stick (the navy.) They wouldn't do anything because he had a navy ready to take over if necessary.

yeah, but it put a lot of focus on the "global police" part, and he really only cared about the western hemisphere. that was my original answer tho.
