* Music/TheSexPistols released a 1978 single, "No One Is Innocent", sung by criminal on the run Ronnie Biggs, where they praise various notorious people and also shout "God Bless Idi Amin" at one point. By the way, Creator/JohnLydon had already left the group at this point and didn't want to have anything to do with it.

All these reports turned Amin in one of the most colorful and frequently mocked politicians of TheSeventies.

On 30th October, 1978, Idi Amin sent troops (With extra military backup from [[UsefulNotes/MuammarGaddafi Muammar Gaddafi]]) to invade the Kagera region of neighboring country Tanzania, starting the Uganda-Tanzania War. Unfortunately for Amin however, Uganda's military was mostly trained to execute its own civilians; they were ill-prepared to fight a war against another country. As a result, Tanzania defeated Uganda's invasion ''very'' easily, and in turn, ''they'' [[EpicFail invaded Uganda]]. The Tanzanians toppled Idi Amin's regime and he fled to Libya and Saudi Arabia, where he lived in exile until his death on August 16, 2003.
