    Manuel noriega was involved in the iran contra deal with alexander haig and oliver north, he was a scape goat for the american politicians, he also helped the deal with cocain sales for guns for nicaragua. It is a shame that people think this is a great country, while we support unrest in impovershed countries. I was in south america about this time frame when this all went down . Than about the time that noriega had enough of u.s bullying and bribes that we apprehended him before he could sell out this country!!! All we did is put out contradicting propaganda, to cover up the truth. The united states is a great country??? Well ill tell you something right now, and that is the fact that the people in south and south central america are some of the most humble people on earth!!! So why do we still prey on them? Because of the drug war that our past movie star president started. And its a war that we started and a war we lost plane and simple!!!!

    Hey sniper, he was actually charged for drug offenses,but you are right about the us, they are covering there own asses for there envolvement, for carrying out the drug deals for guns, where else did the money come from to purchase weapons from iran? To help fight forces in south central america? But it all makes sense to relate all the imformation. It sucks when people blame countries south of the border for the drugs in the us, th us is more responsible for the drugs entering the us. So lets keep america high so nobody will find out the truth about the glorious drug war. Now the us government can keep us all under control with there games soi we all can be ran by them, from the cia down to your neiborly snitch,,, sorry for the truth....... Until next time
