Here's a pic taken just before the start of East Germany's last parade which commemorated the DDR's 40th anniversary. The parade was in East Berlin. A small group of us went over to "observe" the proceedings. Gorbachev was there and pretty sure Gaddafi and Arafat were too. Of course just a short month later the DDR was no more. "Tear down this wall" indeed!!
This East German officer was none too happy that a couple of US Army types were photographing his equipment. You can see my buddy in the background getting upclose and personal :-)
Gorbachev, Gaddafi, and Arafat...nice company.
Funny how hard the left tries to glorify Gorby, all the while demonizing Reagan.
