Abstract : At noon 31 December 1999, the American military, which was instrumental in securing Panamanian independence in 1903 and installing Panamanian democracy in 1989 will withdraw in accordance with the Panama Canal Treaty of 1977. In view of current world changes and U.S. interest, this study seeks to establish the operational role of the U.S. military in Panama beyond the year 2000 by establishing America's historical interest in Panama, analyzing the Carter-Torrijos Treaties of 1977, assessing the strategic value of the Panama Canal and analyzing the internal problems currently plaguing Panama.
