Sir: We have already witnessed the threat of unilateral American sanctions as a response to the banana dispute between the European Union and the US. A recent edition of the television documentary on the Cold War provided a chilling reminder of the lengths to which the US will go to counter a threat to its strategic banana interests in Latin America. Economic sanctions, subversion, and if all else fails they send in the Marines. Europe beware.
