Did I say something about the Rambo sequels being ridiculously pro-war?

Check out the trailer for the upcoming Rambo:

"Are you bringing any weapons?"
"Of course not."
"You're not changing anything."

Though... In all fairness, the Burmese government is godawful.

Oh, sure.

I was talking to someone about how Burma is such a non-controversial choice of country for Rambo to invade. The regime is universally reviled, but at the same time poses no real threat to anyone outside of Burma.

But, the point is, surely the situation in Iraq proves that going in guns blazing is not necessarily the best way to improve the plight of the people, despite the political rhetoric to the contrary.

Indeed. I was okay with it up to the point where he ranted about "living for nothing or dying for something".

I have no problem with the idea of the movie in general though. Rambo kills bad guys. And in the defence of the writers/etc, the first one or two Rambo movies were pretty much all about why we shouldn't sympathise with Rambo's violent persona. Yeah, he has vaguely positive ideals, and he kills good, but he's a moron when it comes to dealing with people.
