CAIRO — Syria’s state news agency reported Monday that “armed gangs” had killed 80 police and security personnel in multiple attacks on security forces in a northwestern town, and that residents were “pleading” for the army to intervene.

The attacks, if confirmed, would be the most lethal anti-government retaliation in Syria since President Bashar al-Assad began a brutal crackdown on protesters three months ago.

Story at NY Times

officially the government has said these protests are all over the high costs and shortage of food stuffs as well as poor economic conditions, in other words not enough jobs to go around... however... there is another side

The uprising began in the southern town of Dara’a and quickly spread, after residents there rose up against the Assad regime following the arrest and torture of a group of school children accused of spray painting anti-government graffiti on a school house wall. The children, aged eight to fifteen, were badly beaten and had their fingernails pulled out! Can you say "Ouch"... Can you say "Pissed off Parents?" Sure, I knew you could.

So maybe it's no so much about unemployment and more about fighting back against oppression?

I don't know , deraa is a hotbed of the muslim brotherhood , and muslim brotherhood is controlled by mi6 and massoneria .Makes the uprising questionable and from what i know from my friends in the gulf , they believe syrian police is being provoked to up the ante so that invasion and attack against Syria and Russian assets can be justified. any attack on russian military assets by NATO or muslim brotherhood could mean world war (if by NATO) or mass artillery attack on muslim brotherhood in Deraa (which will be genocide in Deraa ,comparable to FallulJAH,Iraq . Syria is being destablized deliberately to drag Russia into war against NATO . Russia has a naval base in Tartarus ,Syria

Armed gangs were blamed for the violence in the first place, the protests started peacefully, the government followed up on the protesters demands, but thugs were armed and cause the spread of chaos. The protests increased because of the violence, Assad's forces have carried out extreme acts of violence, but that's the result of the widespread chaos created by armed thugs, where did they get their weapons from?
