The Slate article is not bad, but there are very few Russians that I have seen over here. They are wrong about the $1000 a day quote, since those days
are long gone for most of us. They were also wrong about the Aegis video being shot (no pun intended) on the BIAP road.
The other article seems to date to 2004. It seems that there are less of these guys over here now, and more Iraqis taking up the fight. There have
even been reported cases of the insurgents having "issues" with these fighters and killing em or turning them in to the authorities. The major
problem seems to be that these non iraqi insurgents are killing Iraqis in their attempts to blow up the MNFI forces. The Iraqi insurgents are strong
enough now and thus do not need the outsiders...
