A Slap in the Face – Marines Ordered to Destroy their Weapons as the Yemen Embassy is Surrendered

February 12, 2015

Adding another slap in the face to our military, the US State Department ordered Marines guarding our Yemen embassy to abandon their vehicles and destroy all weapons as they left, thus signaling a surrender anathema to any Marine.

We have three anti-military and antiwar leaders now supposedly defending our national security and determining our strategy in the Middle East: President Obama, Secretary of State Kerry and Secretary of Defense Hagel.

Initial reports quoting Pentagon spokesperson Army Col. Steve Warren stated that machine guns and all crew served weapons were destroyed at the embassy prior to evacuation while personal weapons were turned over or otherwise left behind. However, after these reports raised alarm that Houthi rebels in the region had seized the surrendered weapons, a new statement was issued which stated that in fact all personal weapons were destroyed by sledgehammer at the airport where the Marine force was evacuated by a civilian aircraft.

    I think the member of congress have been told by the executive branch that FBI investigations on most of them have dug up embarrassing stuff. If impeachment is attempted this stuff will be made public. I wish these congressmen/congresswomen would weigh the fate of the nation against the possible damage to their careers.

      Made my point. Gradualism is practiced by every branch, public and secret to turn our elected representative republic into one grand welfare state. From these geniuses vie point, Big Government is mans answer for everything. Major problem, if we are all wards of the state, who is going to pay for all those free cars, housing, boats, food, clothing etc.

    Another bug out order from protector of the radical terrorist Muslims. This person has a long and extensive trail by his acts of omission that have given aid and comfort to our nations enemies. Attention Congress; Is there a “last straw in Obama’s quiver” that even you self serving mental midgets will finally have the decency to say, “enough is enough?”

        President Abraham Lincoln said it best; “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” The long running two party system has become so corrupted by what I define as gradualism. FDR started this process by introducing the concept that big government could ease the peoples burden. Political operatives use the technique of asking for half a loaf and ready to settle for 10% knowing that over time they will get the whole loaf. Their score card. 1) Abortions a woman’s right to choose. 2) Gays can serve in the military. 3) Same sex marriage now a civil right. Also can adopt children. 4) Political Correctness/social relations poison pill. 5) Racism promoted and practiced from the Oval Office, 6) Justice Department legalized gun running to Mexico’s drug dealers. (Fast and Furious) 7) Ban prayer in public schools. 8) Removal religious symbols from many public buildings.

          And you don’t think big government eased the peoples’ burden in 2008-9, during and immediately after the financial meltdown and the housing implosion?

        He is right and until you say something coherent to counter him, you are an idiot.

    How are military actions, orders, and commands able to be modified after the action (‘ex post facto’)?
    [I don’t want to hear ‘at this point in time, what difference does it make?’]
