NLONG VENG, Cambodia He was one of the greatest mass killers of the 20th century, but that doesn't stop the hopeful from praying at Pol Pot's hillside grave for lucky lottery numbers, job promotions and beautiful brides.
Nor does it stop tourists from picking clean the bones and ashes from the Khmer Rouge leader's burial ground in this remote town in northwestern Cambodia.
The grave is among a slew of Khmer Rouge landmarks in Anlong Veng, where the movement's guerrillas made their last stand in 1998 just as Pol Pot lay dying. A $1 million tourism master plan is being finalized to preserve and protect 15 of the sites, and charge admission.

Well, I suppose being Cambodian and facing Pol Pot from the good side of a grave has to be good luck.
Well, the fact he is dead is lucky I guess!
They could turn it into a memorial, the Pol Pot Urinal Trough.
The motto: relief yourself
(could have been believe yourself but I figured this one is better)
i do have half a mind to go up there and piss on it, actually
They will only find death.
many Khmer are highly attracted to and motivated by superstition and witchcraft . Citizens of nearby countries fear Khmer hex’s . This might be part of the visiting of the great evil ones death spot. I’d like to visit it too , to take a nice long urination upon it , followed by a healthy spit .
Cremated on a pile of used rubber tires, Pol Pot's grave. Just out of shot is a small spirit house built in thanks to Pol Pot by a Thai businessman!
