Assad rages in a gilded cage while listening to way sad country & western tunes

Syria’s Assad tells pampered wifey that Rupert Murdoch is “a Jew and an Israeli citizen and (is) ‘pretty Satan.'”.

He also appears to be a fan of mournful country & western ballads:

But Assad’s email, using the pseudonym Sam, reflected none of the bloody turmoil or diplomatic jeopardy facing his country. In a bizarre message apparently from the Syrian leader, he sent his wife the lyrics of a country and western song by the US singer Blake Shelton, and the audio file downloaded from iTunes.

Laden with self-pity, the communication appeared to exemplify the cocooned life of denial that Assad, his family and inner circle were leading while the country erupted around them
