"As we know, the United States helped create and finance military forces in 1903 to rebel against the Colombian government and to sever Panama from Colombia in order to seize control of what would become the Panama Canal", Kovalik, who teaches International Human Rights at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, said.

"Colombia has suffered internal civil strife ever since, including from paramilitary forces which have continued to rear their ugly head, many times with the support of the US, until the present day. Colombia continues to suffer from horrific human rights abuses carried out by such forces which now dominate much of the countryside", he said.

"We can see that now with the United States's open and aggressive regime-change operations in Venezuela", he said.

"The Monroe Doctrine is alive and well, quite sadly for the people of Latin America", he said.

The carving of Panama out of Colombia in order to build the canal "was an early case of the United States using the military to move toward hemispheric hegemony under the long-standing Monroe Doctrine. As US Senator [Samuel] Hayakawa said humorously but accurately much later, the United States 'stole it fair and square'", Eland said.

"Yes, the 'colossus of the North' - still the most potent country on earth, economically, politically, and militarily - still has great effect on the Western Hemisphere. Economics gets politicised and so a free market doesn’t exist. Moreover, the economics of the drug war undermines the region’s sovereignty too", he said.

"Now, the US appears to want to cut off such influence of China in the region, and may act in aggressive ways to halt it", Kovalik said.

"In that protectionism is contagious and reduces trade volumes and general world prosperity, the trade war between the two largest economies could lessen trade through the canal. There has also been talk of an alternative route", he said.
