This should get way more publicity than it will get.

America should be watching intently, but sadly, it will be forgotten.

They know. Trump bombed the shit out of hundreds of Russian mercs in Syria a while back.

But ultimately these are more like security contractors than soldiers for hire. Arming and training local groups to project national influence. US does the same thing in Iraq, Libya, etc.
