9780813379814: Operation Just Cause: The U.s. Intervention In Panama

The US intervention in Panama in December 1989 brought to a climax a divisive set of issues that had plagued policy-makers throughout the decade. This study examines all facets of the Panama dilemma, beginning with the historical factors that led to the intervention. It then follows all phases of the military operation and assesses its effects on future relations with Panama, especially in light of the special relationship between the two countries created by the canal. The book criticizes the accuracy of US intelligence - especially given the failure of US forces to capture Noriega - the effectiveness of joint forces in combat and the adequacy of air power, logistical support, and medical evacuation procedures. Weighing the legal aspects of the intervention, the book also examines the outcome of Noriega's request for political asylum. The closing essay considers the future US role in Panama and the impact that "Just Cause" will have on US foreign relations worldwide. The detailed chronology compiled by the editors should be a valuable research and reference aid.
