Chinese communist leader Mao himself claims to have ordered execution of over 700,000 people from 1949-53. US sources estimate closer to 1,000,000 deaths as a result of land reform, and another 800,000 killed in counter-revolutionary campaign.

But what's a million killed here and there, when Mao's Great Leap Forward helped make everything in US have a 'Made in China' label, and give billions of profits to US corporations?
