I appear on AM 950 Minneapolis with my buddy Mattt cNeil on February 14th.  On February 7th and 8th, there was a serious firefight that took place in an oil rich region on Syria. This fact in itself may not generally be terribly significant except for one fact, apparently the combatants were American on one side and the other side were primarily Russian mercenaries. According to reports, the U.S. was using B-52s, AC-130 Gunships and F15s.  As a result of airstrikes and close combat, somewhere between 100 and 300 Russian, Ukrainian and other Southern Republic fighters were killed.  What are the implications.

This is a fascinating story because it highlights the shadowy world of the merc and how and why countries use them.  We will talk that and a lot more.
