Libya concert marks US bomb raids


Libya has marked the 20th anniversary of the US bombing raids on Tripoli and Benghazi with a high-profile concert.
US soul singer Lionel Ritchie and Spanish tenor Jose Carreras performed in front of the bombed house of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in the capital.
A crowd of diplomats, businessmen and politicians was brought to their feet, with soul veteran Lionel Ritchie dominating what was called the "concert for peace".
Lionel Ritchie??? did he do it as a paying gig or out of some other motive?
Maybe they should have got The Clash. I hear 'Rock the Casbah' goes down well in Libya.
Or Annie Lennox with 'Walking on Broken Glass'?

I bet Lionel Ritchie didn't mention he used to be a Commodore. He and Jose Carreras no doubt got a suitable fee that satisfied any moral argument for being there or not.
