Russia Says 15,000 Al Qaeda in Syria

I've Been Thinking:
A Russia ambassador to the UN in Geneva came out with a very important statement about Syria yesterday.
He said that 15,000 foreign al Qaeda terrorists are in Syria fighting against Assad and his regime.
If correct, it highlights some interesting and essential points.
Few Syrians themselves are fighting against Assad. That would mean that these al Qaeda imports are trained and have an entirely different vision for Syria than the protestors.
Russia is an ardent supporter of the Assad regime. But that having been said, Russia is also trying to stop the killing and the Russians have serious resources in the region.
15,000 might be an exaggeration but half of that - 7,500, is a more realistic number.
