As Russia is Assads biggest friend, does it not ring alarm bells that R are pumping out all sorts of nonsense. They did the same with Libya and look

Yes, there are foreigners fighting in Syria, usually as part of Islamist groups, which the FSA doesn't get on with particularly well as they run
counter to the FSA's stated aim of placing a secular, not fundamentalist regime in power.

a cart-blanch statement like "95% of them are not Syrian" without making the effort to distinguish between them is foolish.
