From the CNN.com article on the death of Manuel Noriega:

"[Panama's] location was critical to the United States because of its location on the Panama Canal, a key strategic and economic waterway between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans."

Perhaps if Panama had not been so near the Canal it would not have been critical...?

Building it in Nicaragua might have been the answer.
