Ouyang Xiang, son of the former first secretary of Heilongjiang’s provincial party committee, was dragged outside the North Plaza Hotel, persecuted for sending an unsigned letter to the provincial revolutionary committee defending his denounced father. Three days later, he was pushed out of a third-story window of the building where he was held. The official report called his death a suicide. Harbin, Heilongjiang province, Nov. 30, 1968.

Japanese Nurse dressed in Black 1905 Red Cross Nurses were a symbol of modernity and of Japan’s commitment to humanitarian ideals, during the Russo-Japanese War (8 February 1904 – 5 September 1905).

Chaing Kai-Shek (L) and Mao Tse-Tung ® pose for an official photo in the WWII years when both shared the Japanese as a common enemy. After the defeat of Japan, the two men waged a civil war for control of China. Mao’s Red Army pushed Chang’s KMT out of mainland China to Taiwan.

Iraq's then-President Saddam Hussein fires a rifle in Baghdad on Nov. 20, 2000. Saddam fired two rifle shots to kick off festivities celebrating Iraq's commitment to liberating the holy city from Israeli rule. When U.S. leaders decided it was time to depose Saddam Hussein, he made the perfect foil. He was cocky and cunning. He looked dangerous and deranged standing at rallies firing a rifle into the air - conduct unbecoming a head of government.
