1. What a pig!
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (07.15.12)
One can only imagine what that freeloading sow spends on clothes and shoes! While ordinary, decent Syrians go hungry. It doesn't get much more disgusting and disgraceful.
2. That's one seriously ugly ottoman
3. She's probably stocking a house to run to.
rebecca ,   Modiin   (07.15.12)
Planning and preparation.
4. Hey Man. It's theirs aint it?
Gideon Reader   (07.15.12)
It's their money. They looted it from the Syrian treasury fair and square. Confidentially, between you and me, that bimbo has lousy taste. Unless she is going for the "Maison Close" worker-resident look.
5. Furniture for Latakia ???
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (07.15.12)
Maybe the Ass ads will soon move over...??? GOOD LUCK...on the streets...
6. Guillotine, anyone?
The Prophetess ,   FL, USA   (07.15.12)
And Maire Antoinette said, "Qu'ils mangent de la brioche" (Let them eat cake). Any price on "la tete" of Mme. Assad?
7. she is going to fly on her rug & use chandeliers as bombs
zionist forever   (07.15.12)
Asma Assad doesn't want to give up her luxuries because there is a whole load of killing going on far from the palace. If she has syphoned off the money from the countries assets and wants to spend it on chandeliers while her husband kills then hell let her. Make the most of these big sales while she is still around to shop, its good for the British economy. I feel kind of sorry for her because she has just spent all this money on luxuries and she isn't going to be around to enjoy them for long. Eventually her and her husband will either be hiding in a hole in the ground, executed by Syrians, in an international court or in exile in some third world country never able to leave. I am sure if she goes home to England they will find some charge to arrest her on so she can't go back home with her swiss bank account while he lives in exile.
8. Figures where she's going
Mark ,   U S.   (07.15.12)
They can't take that sh-t to HELL,,, figures,,, they'll be doing a lot of shopping no internet in HADES.
9. When you have other people's money, you shop.
Murray of Montreal ,   Canada   (07.15.12)
That is the way of the dictator. In democracies its the kickbacks that are used for shopping purposes.
10. You just got to laugh..and you want peace with these savages
Al   (07.15.12)
11. Disgusting
David ,   Ny   (07.15.12)
Most western women would behave in the same manner. This is no surprise
12. is an ottoman a fancy name for a foot stool ?
zionist forever   (07.15.12)
13. deck chairs on the Titanic
Sherlock Holmes ,   London England   (07.15.12)
Assad qualified as an eye doctor in London, so they both have strong British connections. Her constant spending of money is like ordering new deck chairs for the Titanic.
14. #1 Sarah
DavidR ,   USA   (07.15.12)
Spot on Sarah! What a pity that all of this will be blasted to threads as her husband continues his destruction of Syria. Damascus will soon become a ruinous heap and Latakia will fare no better. Who needs money to feed the starving masses when Ass ad intends to blow them all to hell anyway?
15. #1: But she wears lipstick.
Steve   (07.15.12)
16. why not, later they will kill her
Larry ,   Los Angeles   (07.15.12)
If she does not enjoy what they have plundered now, when the Syrian masses catch her, they will murder her a very brutal murder that no one should know. I do not envy her shopping spree.
17. Clumsy "nouveaux riches"
2Mad ,   צרפת   (07.15.12)
Craving for a house two inch taller, exotic furniture, all that crap. But, long way to go, Mrs Assad. Here, even the worst failure of all failed ministers has an Audi 8 - costing twice as much.
18. #9: Is that what's happening with Michelle Obama?
Steve   (07.15.12)
Instead of shopping (maybe she does shop) she takes lavish vacations at tax-payer expense. "Let them (the Americans) eat cake!"
19. Give Asma some credit
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (07.15.12)
She's not our there killing
20. she is in denial. she thinks that
Barney ,   USA   (07.15.12)
she will be around to enjoy these things. some people shop when they are depressed. i think that is probably the case here.
21. Shop till you DROP ...
Iranian Hunter   (07.15.12)
22. To#19 How droolingly droll.
Gideon Reader   (07.15.12)
Give Assma Credit? Are you freaking nuts? She either pays cash.... or she don't get the crappy looking foot stool.
23. As General Victor Krulak said of General Westmoreland in
Rivkah   (07.15.12)
Viet Nam, "When you don't know what to do, do what you know!" Asma does not know what to do so she is doing what she knows: shopping.
24. Hey ynetnews ! if you don't like what i'm doing,....
Asma Assad   (07.15.12)
I suggest you do something about it ! My husband knows i'm a good wife that stills cooks fondue in a 200,000 dollar gold plated soup bowl. And yes, i'm definitely not a gold digger. And i'm not a sow like what #1 say, how dare you comparing me with a sow, poor pigs should not be compared with me, it's an insult for pigs.
25. #18 Steve
Moshe of Rockville ,   Rockville,MD USA   (07.15.12)
Oh, your cynical discourse which compares our first lady with one whose husband thrives by killing his opponents is asinine. What else could one expect of good ole Stevey?
26. ok she's a spendthrift can we get her credit card number?
she won't notice really she won't then we can all go on the mother of a shopping trip! Yay! let's go (well everyone except #1 she's got a potty mouth and I don't like her)
27. #23 what? three lines that's it?
oh I get it Asma's not Jewish so you aren't wasting virtual ink on her right?
28. Retail therapy helps denial
Tambour ,   eilat   (07.15.12)
Perfectly normal behaviour, Poor lady sold herself to an arab optician, and ended up a queen of the may with her husband turned tyrant. She must worry sick about her children knowing they will die a horrid death with her and their father. She is not unaware how despots are butchered and dragged in the streets. She awaits fate worse than death.
29. Asma tells Syrians to eat cake when they run out of bread.
Michael ,   California, USA   (07.15.12)
30. Nero fiddled while Rome burned
Michal ,   Tel Aviv   (07.15.12)
