Jack talks to Jamie and Buck about meeting in Syria a year prior. James discusses his transition from the Marine Corps to the Central Intelligence Agency. The team then talks about the modern day “mercenary” or volunteer soldier serving in the YPG in Syria, the Peshmerga in Iraq, and Azov Battalion in Ukraine. We talk about the personalities of the people who serve as volunteer soldiers and talk about some of the frauds including one who claims to have invented the SAS but didn’t know how to fire a AK-47.
