    I find it remarkable that this isn't getting more attention.

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/report-us-forces-killed-more-than-200-russian-fighters-in-syria-attack

    Hundreds of Russian mercenaries were reportedly killed by U.S. forces in a failed attack on a U.S.-held military base and refinery last week. Citing U.S. and Russian sources, Bloomberg News reported more than 200 contract killers—mostly Russian citizens fighting for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad—died in what is believed to be the deadliest incident between Russian and U.S. citizens since the Cold War.

    That makes more sense, actually I'd think a little lower. That's a bloody nose.

    Of course! All wannabes are tacticool... even Russian ones. There was nothing special about these guys. They aren't really Russian military, think of them as really poor quality PMC types that Russia actively encourages and enables to be there, while denying they have anything to do with it, like in Ukraine.

    It's obviously a cover up, Mueller is too close to finding out and proving the Trump-Russia collusion and all it's sordid details. I'm sure Nancy and Chuck will expose this ruse.

    It’s big income for them relative to annual pay in the village/oblast.

    Yes, that is my understanding that mercenaries are paid well. The little town I grew up in had a gentleman that was contracted in Saudi for several years. He seemed to be paid very well...his family did not go without. This was in the late 70s and maybe early 80's.
