rambo vs. myanmar

Here's some interesting news about the new Rambo movie that I hated so much. Police in Myanmar have reportedly given DVD bootleggers strict orders not to stock and sell the movie: Myanmar junta takes aim at latest Rambo movie. Can't say this is unexpected, right? Considering the movie features Sylvester Stallone taking on country's ruling military junta#151;and winning. And also no suprise, despite the prohibition, pirated copies of the movie are widely available, and selling like crazy. It's apparently become a very popular talking point among Myanmar's population, which has been under military rule for over 40 years. I suppose if anyone might be happy to see Rambo kicking the junta's ass, it's them.
