John Rambo contains a lot of action and I know that it is risky in this state of my career, but I want John Rambo to come back to his origins – his revolutionary side…

- Sylvester Stallone, quoted in an interview about the upcoming Rambo film.  More information on Rambo’s battle with the tatmadaw is available from the New Mandala archive.
