Another humiliating hit at Obama and the United States as another American embassy is evacuated, and not only can Marines not prevent Iran-backed jihadists from seizing U.S. Embassy vehicles, but they also seized the Marine’s weapons.

Sanaa, Yemen Houthi rebels took all U.S. Embassy vehicles parked at the Yemeni capital’s airport and wouldn’t let the departing U.S. Marines take their weapons with them, a top Sanaa airport official said about the latest evidence of unrest in an Arab nation long seen as key in America’s fight against terrorism.

The actions come after the United States, along with Britain, suspended operations at their embassies and moved out staffers because of the instability in Yemen.

Clashes between Yemen's presidential guards and Shiite Houthi rebels

The U.S., U.K. and France moved to close their embassies in Yemen and urged their citizens to leave the country amid spiraling security fears over the collapse of the country’s government. Yemen’s U.S.-backed president, prime minister and cabinet abruptly resigned last month after Iran-backed Houthi rebels seized the capital, Sanaa. While the U.S. had kept diplomatic staff on duty in Sanaa and on Monday said it had no plans to close the embassy, the State Department late Tuesday said it was withdrawing personnel and temporarily closing the station.

  1. Im from Yemen, What in Gods name they were doing by withdrawing ?
    I live in Sanna, and by withdrawing they want us to become like Syria! Dont they. And I was collecting every penny that I got to travel to America once and for all, but now It seems to be my destiny to get killed in this Godforsaken land.
    As a poor country and people, we cant just leave !? nobody can go and live in America, or in the west. Thats a dream for a people like me. and we just stuck in here waiting till things get worse and die with our family. What a life that we’re living in ? Just a cruel life without any happiness.

    • Sammy, as an american citizen I feel so sorry for you and all of the poor people over there, the people in washington no longer represent the people of this country but instead seem to be doing everything possible to destroy us and our way of life. Our elected officials appear to be acting on behalf of some other party because they sure are not acting on behalf of our people or yours.
