This chapter examines the legality of the U.S. invasion of Panama in 1989, with particular reference to the various justifications offered by the administration of President George Bush. It explores the consequences of taking seriously the legal justifications offered by the U.S. at the time of invasion. It discusses the criticism offered by some international relations experts that, in such cases, international law operates primarily to concentrate attention on what states say rather than on what they do.

Keywords:   invasion, Panama, U.S., George Bush, legal justification, international law
