African Infantryman of the Year

The CAR is heading for more chaos and slaughter, not helped by the supply of large amounts of Russian weapons and the deployment of a large number of Russian mercs (Vagner/Wagner PMC has been mentioned), ostensibly to protect the President, train troops and stabilise the country, but actually to gain mineral concessions for Russian companies and further the interests of the Kremlin kleptocracy. It is highly likely that among the Russian Mercs is a generous contingent of former French Foreign Legionnaires with CAR experience, as there has been a large amount of Russians in the Legion since the nineties.

Condottiere, this is very interesting stuff and worthy of a thread all it's own. It shouldn't be shared with photos of hyped up losers carrying rusty rifles and wearing wedding dresses and gum boots.

Cheers,
Dan.
