Syria's first lady, Asma al-Assad, is just the sort of pretty face that tyrants love to show when they're not slaughtering their own people. The charm offensive against the Western media has basically fallen flat, though.

The Assad Regime is pretty much going to slaughter everyone in order to stay in power. I wouldn't expect too many more attempts to try to win over the media.
