Vietnam veteran John Rambo was the toast of the British public today when he flew into Afghanistan to single-handedly rescue would-be soldier, and son of the late, great Princess Diana of Wales, Prince Harry.
Rambo was dropped out of a British Chinook helicopter from 400 feet, but managed to land on a group of lacklustre Taliban insurgents, killing them in the process, before running 15 miles across an arid desert to pluck the harmless Prince out of harms way.
Harry Wales, (no relation to Josey Wales), or Widow67 as the Army call him, was surprised and pleased to see Rambo, and told him that it was "just like in the films".
Casualties, as always, are thought to have been high.
John Rambo has been the subject of a series of 'vigilante-type' movies in which he is portrayed by Italian Stallion Arnold Schwarzenegger, slicing through paramilitary forces like a "knife thru' budder".
Rambo had been asked to rescue the beleaguered Prince after the Royal's cover was broken by foreign journalists, and, as a bullet magnet, he had become a liability to other allied forces. He told reporters it had been an easy decision to make, saying:
"The battlefield's no place for children!"
