    The Panamians LOVE the USA, most didn’t want us to leave (we still actually have some baseing there) I bet a lot of Iraqes would like to see more of us as well.
    We never had boots on the ground in Nicaragua, funding the opposition is fair game, see Soviet Union and China.
    Grenada was also happy to see us by all the reports from the right wing rag the NYT.
    As to Afghanistan, well they make the Irish look meek and mild. (and I’m part Irish so I can say that)

    During my last deployment to Iraq 2012-2013, I heard one thing over and over from the Iraqis I worked with: “When we asked you to leave, we didn’t think you’d really do it!” Usually followed by, “We’re not really ready yet!”

    Putin opined in Pravda the other day: Well, you see, it’s much easier to tell another country’s leaders what to do and when to do it (and pay YOU for the privilege of telling them) if you “own” that country.

    swr: my son’s been in Panama and had a girlfriend there who’s father hated Noriega, but when the U.S. took over, he lost EVERYTHING he owned because he wasn’t favored by “our” regime. No, not all Panamanians love America. The same is true for his contacts with the people he met in Iraq (three tours). The folks on “our side”, making profits from our invasions, don’t actually represent a majority, most anywhere we’ve stepped in.

    Panama DOES court Americans to come down, and bring their money. Dual residence is easy, as is dual citizenship, if you can pay for it.

    None of those things compare to what’s going on in the Ukraine. Nicaragua was iffy by todays standards; but is not relevant today. Your practicing a commonly used tactic by Democrats; moral equivalency.

    The invasion of Panama was to oust the dictator and return the canal to the people of Panama. What they do within their own country and government is their business. And the United States doesn’t administer Regimes.

    To the toon and “interests” of the “who’s back yard issue”:


    Distance Moscow to Kiev; 470 miles


    Distance D.C. to Baghdad: 6,147 miles


    How many Iraqis have English as their “first” language, how many Ukrainians have Russian as their “First” language??


    Robert: the reason for our replacing the government in Panama was to guarantee OUR actual control over the canal. You also might want to review the names Diem, Ky, etc about that U.S. not “administering” regimes, in a LOT of places, and it’s often our corporations rather than our government. Notable going back to 1923 for a little history was the fact that Mobil Oil essentially “created” the regime in Saudi Arabia…
