The article suggests an approach which could help the U.S. government defend the conquest of Panama Canal from the Soviet Union. It asserts that the use of the Navy and Air Force could abort a shipload of Cubans or Russians dispatched to take control. A missile fired and the idea of espionage are also considered.
