I want to express as emphatically as I can my disapproval of the policy of this country in lending our armed forces toward enforcing the domestic affairs of other countries. It is a sordid chapter in American history. It is not to the credit of the United States that we ever undertook such a thing in the past and will be less to our credit if we repeat it here today.
