What about all the U.S. island Trusts in the Pacific? Could we leave those places? Maybe just leave a few advisors but leave those islands to their own sufficiency? GAP, the sad thing about Panama is that we helped create Noriega and prop him up thanks to CIA meddling. Then after we created a monster, we had to go in and destroy him. A clear example of what this type of subversive influence can lead to. We haven't even touched on the corporate/military collusion that occurred in the Dominican Republic with the Dole corporation either.
