Another Trick by Mao





In this photo from 1976 the so called "gang of four" were removed for a memorial ceremony for Mao. Not long ago there was much speculation the Kim Jung Il had either died or was seriously ill - the North Korean government press was accused of manipulating images of the dictator into recent photographs to trick everyone into thinking he was ok. I'll have to look for some of those images to post.
