Yup, I was in Panama for the two years before we rolled in with Operation Just Cause. Got to hear Daddy Bush make any number of "protests in the strongest terms" after Noriega arrested folks (me included) and generally thumbed his nose at us. Didn't help then, won't help now. The guns did it. The guns did it. The guns did it! Not brandishing them, USING THEM!
