Battle for Ramadi: "We should thank the Russians because they encouraged America to increase their bombing."

Video report from VICE News reporter embedded with the Golden Division, "the only non-sectarian milita left in Iraq, with Sunni, Shia, Kurdish and Christian commanders amongst their ranks."

"Simple stuff but smart guys to make all this" (Islamic State IEDs and other homemade weapons)

"We should thank the Russians because they encouraged America to increase their bombing. Any place they [U.S.-led coalition] find a threat to us, they hit.  We've started giving them coordinates  Whatever coordinates we give them to hit, they blow up. It's not like before, so now work has become easier."
