What happened to that guy after the US overthrew him? Where is he now? Why did the US invade Panama, anyway?

He's in federal prison, I think at Leavenworth.

We invaded Panama to get him, basically. He was causing too many problems. The official charges against him in U.S. court were for drug trafficking, which apparently was how he made money to stay in power in Panama. Never mind that we supported his dictatorship for years because we thought it was the better alternative to communism.

Probably staying with his long time buddies in Kennebunkport, Maine or Crawford, Texas.

Uh, Superfly, get your history straight, OK? George H.W. is the one who got him out of power, remember? I don't think he has much love for the Bush's.

For once, it'd be nice if you got it right.

That's the most fake picture I've ever seen, Superfly!  Laugh out loud It doesn't even look real. He's in a fucking prison because of George the First, for Chrissake!  Laugh out loud

You're almost as far out as Roy, I swear!

Actually I think the prison he is being held in, is in Florida.

The U.S. military flushed Noriega out of his residence by blasting him 24/7 with loud rock music. This is a true story. I am not making it up.

They flushed him out of the Vatican embassy with loud music (he went there to seek refuge).

Old Pineapple Face is in prison in the states. At least after we overthrew him, the next U.S.-endorsed leader didn't turn out to be a real ass (like what happened in Chile with Allende/Pinochet).
