The Tatmadaw is the Armed Forces of the Military Junta-controlled Southeast Asian nation of Myanmar (Burma). They are featured predominantly as the main antagonistic force in the 2008 film Rambo.

History

Playing their leader, Major Tint named Maung Maung Khin, the actor was a former Karen soldier that agreed to take part in the film to raise awareness to the genocide going on in Burma. He also knew of their brutality firsthand, and shortly after the film was released, the country's oppressive government banned the film and imprisoned Maung Maung Khin's family because of his role in the film. Bootleg copies are common among the Karen, however, and Rambo's line: "Live for nothing, or die for something." has become their de facto motto.

Led by the sadistic Major Tint, the Tatmadaw has been responsible for many horrific acts. For years they have been trying to completely exterminate the Karen people, a Christian ethnic group spread over Thailand and Burma on oil and natural gas-rich land.

Tint is leading a campaign of fear across the war-torn jungles, going from village to village destroying entire villages, taking prisoners and raping and killing civilians. They kidnap the young girls and force the young boys into service in their army.

The Tatmadaw also are heavily involved in drug trafficking and often kidnap young women, which they rape dozens of times before selling them into prostitution. They also behead or mutilate the people who speak out against them.
