Stallone Upset Over Potential Burma Film Ban

SYLVESTER STALLONE has threatened to expose Burma's killing fields if country officials ban his new movie RAMBO there. The action man shot the movie in the jungles of Myanmar - formerly Burma - and is upset the violent film might not reach fans following an official crackdown on the distribution of pirated copies of Rambo. The Burmese authorities are said to be upset with the plot of the film, in which Stallone's character tackles the country's military in a mission to free a group of captured Christian aid workers. The angry actor/director fumes, "If the Burmese government has nothing to hide, I am wiling to go there and show the world where thousands of bodies of innocent women and children are buried. "Let the generals look me in the eye and tell me they have a free country. It will never happen."

It is not surprising that Rambo will be banned from the country. But on the other hand the film will be available from the black market (a lucrative business from Thailand). Thanks to Stallone and this movie, it will keep the Burmese plight back in the eyes of the international watch dog. We cannot afford to forget the many students and monks who gave up their lives for democracy.

I must give five thumbs up to Rambo IV. Also salute to Stallone for his graphic message to the world community about the terrorizing in Burma by the military regime. Rambo IV can be used as one of the evidences should the International Court of Justice put the regime on trial.
