Aeons ago in 1988 , just before the wall came down [ 11/9/1989 ] RAMBO III was released. AS with many war-films it contained a fair degree of propaganda, so much so that Gorbachev complained.
Boy probably injured by Russian mines.
The film was written about at SURACI's blog -
The film was shot in Thailand, Israel and Arizona.
"However, the spectacle of a major American movie being filmed in the Middle East created a lot of concern about terrorist attacks (to disrupt the production and 'send a message of the U.S.'). Before production could be completed, it is said that Israel revoked the production's permission to remain in the country (the rumored reason being security concerns and threats made to the American film crew). Not wishing for a multi million dollar film to be scrapped, then California State Senator Pete Wilson (R) (a big proponent of the film industry in California and later Governor of the state), helped the production relocate back to Southern California and Arizona"
" the rumored reason" - were there other reasons? Doo-do-doo-doo, doo-do-doo-doo!?
Prosthetic legs - war's not just about guns , it's also about 'healing'
Apache gunships , sometimes starring Prince Harry, now have different decals. They obliterate small children collecting wood because , despite their technologically advanced weapons systems , they can't tell the difference between combatants and civilians. Actually the maniacal mind-controlled button-pushers are so devoid of humanity they couldn't give a damn.
ITs also alleged that pimply youths remote-fly the new drones [ think worker bees, a bit of mockery considering the Masonic bee-hive]

Senatorial help for the film given by Pete Wilson when the Israelis stopped the filming in Israel.
The movie ends with two quotes: "This film is dedicated to the gallant people of Afghanistan." and "I am like a bullet, filled with lead and made to kill" However, this was a not the original quote in the movie. Prior to the American war in Afghanistan, the ending quote of the movie read "This film is dedicated to the brave Mujahideen fighters of Afghanistan". This was then edited to read "people of Afghanistan" during the post 9/11 era.
One gets an idea of the extent certain people will go to - here changing the end of a film made 13 years prior to 9/11. I believe the word 'chutzpah' describes this kind of low, dishonest, arrogance.
