NATO Foreign Ministers sing “We are the world” and anger the public (video)

The weather was good, the spirit was high. The NATO Foreign Ministers came together for a meeting in Antalya in Turkey and after the convention was concluded … they grabbed the microphones and sang karaoke. “We are the world, we are the children”. The group of middle-aged men and women cheered on stage, holding, clapping and raising hands, and generously donating smiles instead of bombs to the audience.

Too bad that a brighter audience in social media did not share the FMs’ joy and reminiscence of the times when they were young and ‘revolutionary’.

The foreign ministers “got roasted on social media for their perceived peace-promoting hypocrisy” notes RT.com, they have been called “killers” and “warmongers” and some internet users advised them it would be better: singing instead of their usual bombing.

‘We Are The World’ was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie in 1985 and was sung by the supergroup USA for Africa, which helped raise $6.5 million in just two months for those stricken by famine.

  OPA! OPA!

PS I wonder whether the happening organizers had earlier distributed the lyrics in photocopies so that the NATO FMs would not lose face on stage. But from what I can see, they sing the chorus line 🙂
