The Pentagon has sent 100 Marines to the US Embassy in Baghdad to bolster security in the wake of an attack on Tuesday where hundreds of pro-Iran militia members stormed the compound, set walls ablaze and chanted ‘Death to America!’ in retaliation for American air strikes.
On September 11, 2012, under the control of President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the US Embassy in Benghazi, Libya was attacked by Muslim forces, surrounded and set on fire. The US Embassy repeatedly asked for backup and military assistance, and that request was repeatedly denied. When it was all over, US Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods lay dead. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton spent the next 4 years lying about it.
President Trump is not allowing the Americans in Baghdad to sit there defenseless like Obama and Hillary did in Benghazi, Trump has sent in the Marines in attack helicopters. And I have full confidence that if the situation is not able to be contained by those Marines Trump has sent in, that the full might of the US Armed Forces will be utilized to work until it is contained. Say what you want about Donald Trump, but in times like these, I will gladly take Trump over any of the 2020 socialist, communist Democrats.
Pentagon Deploys 100 Marines In Chinooks To Reinforce Under-Siege US embassy In Baghdad
FROM DAILY MAIL UK: US soldiers inside the embassy have fired tear gas, stun grenades and warning shots, wounding 62 of the hundreds of fighters who broke down the main door to the compound and set a fire in the reception area, according to the Popular Mobilization Forces, an umbrella group for the militias recognized by the Iraqi government. The ambassador to Iraq was on leave at the time of the attack and embassy staff had already been evacuated before the US Marine guard became besieged behind the bullet-proof glass and on the rooftops.
Very proud of President @realDonaldTrump acting decisively in the face of threats to our embassy in Baghdad.
He has put the world on notice – there will be no Benghazis on his watch.

Tuesday’s attack on the embassy was is in retaliation for US air strikes on the Iran-backed Kataeb Hezbollah on Sunday night, which killed two dozen fighters. Those strikes were in retaliation for last week’s killing of an American contractor at a US base in Kirkuk.
‘We have taken appropriate force protection actions to ensure the safety of American citizens, military personnel and diplomats in country, and to ensure our right of self-defense,’ Esper said in a statement, according to AP. ‘As in all countries, we rely on host nation forces to assist in the protection of our personnel in country, and we call on the Government of Iraq to fulfill its international responsibilities to do so,’ he added.
On Tuesday US Defense Secretary Mark Esper said the US was sending additional forces to the Baghdad embassy, while calling on Iraq to help protect American personnel, hours after President Donald Trump slammed the attack and warned that Iran will be ‘held fully responsible’.

Video footage from the scene shows the US military sending in Marines in two Army Aviation UH-60M utility helicopters and two CH-47F Chinook helicopters, which were then used to evacuate the embassy. Another clip shows a US Apache helicopter dropping warning flares above the embassy. READ MORE
