    Always a bit bizarre this one as Panama was one of the countries that American interfered with extensively over the decades. The Americans supported Noriega to begin with as they preferred him rather than a communist rival, but then they found out he wasn't a "nice guy" and invaded and got rid of him.


    Should America have got involved in Panama and all the other central American states they interfered with?
