According to the author "it is relevant to study Operation Just Cause, the liberation of Panama, because the goal of that operation was essentially identical to that of the current operation in Iraq; namely to depose a dictator and to help the country become free, prosperous and secure.  It is also relevant because in Panama US forces achieved strategic and operational objectives at with relatively low costs in terms of time, blood and treasure." - Discussion.

"In the last twenty years, the United States has employed military means to force regime change in Panama, Haiti, Afghanistan, and Iraq.  Drawing upon analysis of these operations, the resulting primary recommendation is that the JSCP should task USSTRATCOM to develop GR3 into a supporting plan ready for implementation by the geographic combatant commanders." - Abstract.
