The Panama Invasion Revisited: Lessons for the Use of Force in the Post Cold War Era
Eytan Gilboa traces the evolution of the U.S. military confrontation with Manuel Noriega and explains the reasons behind the decision to invade Panama in 1989. He argues that serious mistakes were made in dealing not only with Noriega but also with such dictators as Iraq's Saddam Hussein and the Serbian leaders Radovan Karadzic and Slobodan Milosevic, and draws general lessons for American military intervention after the cold war.
