Creative Piece (Letter to George H.W. Bush)
I write you today on the grounds of my country Panama. An independent, sovereign nation. Yes, it is true that your country once had control over us, but times have changed and I am now the supreme ruler of this nation. The issues/affairs that go on in my country do not concern you and the rest of your nation. You need to understand your place and boundaries and I will stick to mine as well. We will have problems if your intervening with my country continues.
Creative Piece (Response to Manuel Noriega)
I appreciate your concern of the United States intervening with your country but have a few concerns myself. You are absolutely correct in the fact that you are and independent nation but it is our responsibility to at least attempt to form good relationships with surrounding, nearby nations. Over the past few years while you have obtained a good amount of power we have noticed events occurring in Panama that may negatively effect our country, which was the cue for us to step in and see how we could better the situation for both nations. If an event arrises where the United States feels it should step in and take action, we will, and if Panama decides to take action in defense, we are prepared to stand our ground.
