"Say you, say me, say Gaddafi"

On April 5th, 1986, a terrorist bomb exploded in the La Belle discotheque, a Berlin nightclub frequented by American servicemen. Two American soldiers, Sgt. Kenneth T. Ford, 21 (photo), and Sgt. James E. Goins, 25, died as a result of the blast. A Turkish woman, Nermin Hannay, 29, was also killed. About 250 other patrons were injured, many of them U.S. servicemen. The attack was planned by the Libyan secret service and facilitated by the Libyan embassy in East Berlin.

So over the weekend singer Lionel Richie performed in a concert honoring the victims of the Berlin terrorist bombing - er, wait, my bad - rather, the has-been pop star performed at a concert in Libya marking the 20th anniversary of the retaliatory bombing raid ordered by President Reagan against military targets in Tripoli and Benghazi:

With Muammar Gaddafi's home as a backdrop, U.S. singer Lionel Richie jived and rocked for an adoring Libyan audience on Saturday in a concert to mark the 20th anniversary of a U.S. raid on the North African country. "Libya I love you, I'll be back," the Oscar and Grammy award-winning singer songwriter said to roars of approval from more than 1,000 senior Libyan officials and diplomats gathered in front of the shell-cratered building.

Richie said that "This is about making a difference in the world." No, Lionel, this is about yet another dimwitted American entertainer serving as a propaganda tool for a butchering dictator.
