Previous - US Sends Troops to Panama (CYOAH)
The people of Panama resist the American-friendly government and begin a guerrilla war. They hide in the forests and make it impossible for the American soldiers to maintain order. The United States respond by sending more troops over. What should have been a short conflict grows into a prolonged war lasting for years. As the 40's near their end, there are massive anti-war demonstrations almost every week. The entire Caribbean side of the Canal is fully under Fascist control and they're pushing toward the Pacific.
The President knows that decisive action has to be taken. Over the last decade or so, there's been research into a hypothetical new weapon. Called the "atom bomb", it could level an entire city. He has to make a decision as to whether or not to use the experimental weapon on the Fascist guerrillas.
