My Two Cents - These batch of emails depict the attitude that Assad, his inner circle and supporters have towards their own people. Disgust and disdain. That Syrians are merely nothing but barbaric creatures that should be grateful for the fact Assad allows Syrians to breath the same air as he does.
Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad swapped jokes and photographs that callously mock the religious beliefs held by a majority of his population, leaked emails purportedly show.
The ream of messages and derogatory cartoons allegedly sent among his ‘inner circle’ of female aides and family members poke fun at conservative Muslims.
Most of the messages ridicule the burka, the full body cloak worn by some Muslim women.

***COMEDY BREAK*** THE FIRST DEFECTIONS OF THE DUCKS FROM ASSAD’S DUCK BRIGADES. Hama: Mar 19, 2012 - A couple of ducks announce their defection live on camera from the beseied city of Hama. In emails leaked by The Guardian, Assad’s wife addresses the tyrant as “Batta” in her emails. “Batta” means a female duck in Arabic. Syrians have been having one hell of a time with this latest revelation about the cowardly tyrant.
It still amazes me how the people of Syria, under such grave and miserable circumstances can take time to have a laugh.
Documents leaked by Syrian defector show that Assad personally signs off security crackdown plans
Leaks of what appear to be official Syrian documents reveal how its president, Bashar al-Assad, personally signs off plans drawn up by his government’s crisis management centre, prioritising a security crackdown to prevent protests against his regime spreading to Damascus.
Hundreds of pages of confidential papers shown to al-Jazeera TV by a defector describe daily meetings of the heads of all Syria's security and intelligence agencies, who review events and issue orders that are then approved by the president.
The Interfax news agency also reported that a Russian military anti-terror unit had arrived in the Syrian port of Tartous aboard a tanker from the country’s Black Sea fleet. The tanker had earlier passed through pirate-infested waters.

THEY CHANT IN ZABADANI “GOD DAMN YOUR SOUL OH DUCK!” (يلعن روحك يا بطة ). Damascus: Mar 17, 2012 - In refernce to Bashar and Asma’s leaked emails by The Guradian where Asma is seen using the word “Batta” (بطة ) which means (a female) Duck as her nickname for Bashar, these protesters in Zabadani use the popular chant of “God Damn Your Soul Oh Hafez” and change the words to the above mentioned chant.
Excellent stuff. Amazes me that despite all the pain, misery, death and suffering the people of Syria are still able to produce humor.
Next lets watch out for “”Yalla Ir7al Ya Batta” يلا إرحل يا بطة
A cache of emails obtained by the Guardian shows correspondence between Syrian president Bashar al- Assad and his wife Asma and their inner circle of family and confidants, as the country slides toward civil war.
Messages show Assad took advice from Iran. Wife spent thousands shopping for furniture. He even sent his wife song lyrics and video clips, while she shopped for shoes and chandeliers.
