Letter: missile base in Central America
In answer to Rose M. Yochum’s letter to the editor last week, I read that the president (or whatever he calls himself) of Panama put up running the Panama Canal to the highest bidder. The United States won the bid, but he made a deal for the Red Chinese to run the Panama Canal. That was sure kept quiet. I wonder why.
This will give China a missile base in Central America.
We must take our canal back, even if it comes to war with Panama. I believe if the American people knew Red China was taking over the Panama Canal, they’d back up a war. That would be a greater reason to go to war since World War II. We would be fighting for our canal, not for some dictator (Korea) or a war in the Balkans that’s been going on for a thousand years.
