"a skull and crossbones"!

in case you don't know how Nancy Reagan looks ... Google search result (images)

Donald Reagan was an "Irish." More precisely, Ulster Scots Irish, I heard. This explains a lot about the close ties with Maggy, maybe.

And Gaddafi says:
レーガン氏、裁判受けずに死去は遺憾=カダフィ大佐
 6月6日、リビアのカダフィ大佐(写真=5月22日撮影)は、レーガン元米大統領が1986年のリビア爆撃に関する裁判を受けずに死去したことは遺憾との声明を発表した  Yahoo! JAPAN topics


IN ENGLISH:
Gaddafi Regrets Reagan Died Without Facing Trial
_
TRIPOLI, Libya (Reuters) - Muammar Gaddafi said Sunday he regretted that former U.S. President Ronald Reagan had died without ever being tried for 1986 air strikes that killed dozens of people, including the Libyan leader's adopted daughter.
"I express my profound regrets over Reagan's death before he appeared before justice to be held to account for his ugly crime in 1986 against Libyan children," Gaddafi told the official JANA news agency.
_
Reagan ordered the April 15, 1986, air strikes in response to a disco bombing in West Berlin that killed three people, including two U.S. servicemen. Washington blamed Libya for the blast.
_
Libya said more than 40 people died in the strikes on Tripoli and Benghazi. The targets included Gaddafi's home, where his 15-month-old adopted daughter died.
_
Reporting Reagan's death, JANA simply referred to him as former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's partner "in the unsuccessful American-Atlantic (NATO) aggression" on Gaddafi's home.
_
Libya, which recently emerged from international isolation over its alleged support for "terrorism," has been promoting better ties with the United States since agreeing in December to dismantle its programs of weapons of mass destruction.
_
It was not immediately clear if Gaddafi's comments would affect the progress in relations between the two countries.
_
President Bush suspended sanctions against Libya in April, allowing U.S. firms to buy Libyan oil and invest in its economy. Tensions between the two countries were highest under Reagan, who recalled his ambassador in Tripoli after angry crowds sacked the U.S. embassy in 1980. The United States imposed an embargo on Libyan oil in 1982 and U.S. oil companies pulled out.
_
In January 1986, Reagan moved to isolate Libya further after accusing Gaddafi of sponsoring international terrorism and harboring the Palestinian Abu Nidal guerrilla group, blamed for attacks on airports in Rome and Vienna the previous month.
_
Reagan announced new economic sanctions against Libya banning trade, loans and travel to Libya by U.S. citizens.
_
Tensions culminated in a military confrontation in March 1986, when Libya fired missiles at U.S. aircraft during U.S. military maneuvers in the Gulf of Sirte. The United States responded by attacking Libyan patrol boats and a land-based missile site at Sirte.
