    Gee, next you may wish to investigate American intrigue during the Barbary Wars.

    Did you watch the film? I don't know about you but I knew next to nothing about the situation in Panama. I had only a vague notion of the U.S. invasion to stop the legally agreed turn-over of certain national resources to the Panamanian people and the American's crushing Panamanian Democracy. So this film is quite an eye-opener.

    But if you send me a link to the “American intrigue during the Barbary Wars” then I promise to have a look at it. Thanks for the tip!

    No, I did not watch the video. Sorry, but it seems to have a problem getting through my anti-Malware filters.

    The us "Invasion" had nothing to do with trying "to stop the legally agreed turn-over of certain national resources to the Panamanian people and the American's crushing Panamanian Democracy."

    Noriega was NOT a "Democratically elected leader" And in case you didn't notice, the canal is safely in the hands of the people of Panama, these days.

    I forgot you live in the U.S. You are probably censored from seeing it.

    It most certainly did. If you could see the documentary film you'd know that by now.

    That's right. Noriega was part of the CIA operation to destroy Democracy. Noriega was assisted by the U.S. exactly as the Shah was. Too bad you can't see the film.

    Just because one calls it a documentary does not make it truth.

    You know nothing about Panama and Noriega but what someone else told you. I was there.
    The 70s were not a good time for US diplomacy. That is certainly true.
    I am not defending the US and how they used Noriega in the 70s. We overlooked his drug trafficking because he was helpful against the Sandinistas, but after Torrijos died, he became a problem.
    And Daddy Bush had to put him down.
    Noriega was Not a bastion of Democracy, by any stretch of the word.

    No! You're joking! Who told you that?!

    Really? I know many, many things and some of it was told to me by “someone else”!

    No kidding? I have been to many, many places round the world and even I lived many years in the U.S. yet I find out something new about it nearly every day (despite that “I was there”). Strange, huh.

    No. That's not true. You are wrong. The U.S. didn't “overlook” his drug trafficking ….. the CIA shuffled his drugs to the U.S. for him with their own airplanes! Are you sure “you were there”? I'm beginning to doubt it.

    That's right. Noriega was the CIA plan to destroy Democracy and have a base in Latin America from which to spread non-stabilization.

    There is a ton of interviews (in the documentary film) of people who claim “they were there” and even many Panamanians “who were there” too. Perhaps they ought to have spoken with you first, before making the documentary. You really need to see that documentary film so you can contact all of those people and tell them they are all wrong. Yep, it's really too bad about the American censorship.
