Blowback Blows Up - US Embassy In Yemen Stormed

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Anti-American violence and hatred is spreading: first Egypt, then Libya, with very tragic consequences, now Yemen. From Reuters: "Hundreds of Yemeni demonstrators stormed the U.S. embassy in Sanaa on Thursday in protest at a film they consider blasphemous to Islam, and security guards tried to hold them off by firing into the air. The attack followed Tuesday night's storming of the United States Consulate in Benghazi, where the ambassador and three other staff were killed. President Barack Obama said the perpetrators would be tracked down and ordered two destroyers to the Libyan coast, but there were fears protests would spread to other countries in the Muslim world." And since the US will not retaliate against any of these attacks on what is technically US territory except with "strong condemnation", expect many more retaliations against America in the middle east in the days ahead as blowback finally blows up. Also, will the US warships headed to Libya now be redirected to Yemen or the next country that decided to burn down its US mission?

More:

Young demonstrators shouting "we redeem, Messenger of God" smashed windows of the security offices outside the embassy with stones and burned cars before breaking through the main gate of the heavily fortified compound in eastern Sanaa. Others held aloft banners declaring 'Allah is Greatest'.

 

Tyres blazed outside the compound and protesters scaled the walls.

 

"We can see a fire inside the compound and security forces are firing in the air. The demonstrators are fleeing and then charging back," one witness told Reuters.

 

Witnesses said there were some injuries on both sides but gave no exact figures.

The movie that offends these people is about the stupidest, most amateurish thing I've ever seen. Looks like a couple of high school kids put it together in an evening. WTF, getting so upset that Muhammed is portrayed in a bad light? Does the "truth" about Muhammed not stand up against such a flimsy, ridiculous farce of a youtube clip?

Hoof, it's a ploy, a psy op, a diversion. Patsies abound.

A dollar still goes a long way.

All countries have thugs for hire.

The movie seems to be reachign some sort of climactic point, it would seem.

Whether that is a good thing or a bad thing is an unknown unknown.

Climax time, dogs.... git yer towels out! ;-)

You never know what the flash point will be.  World Wide, tensions are growing.  The masses don't have the sophistication to understand the intellectual nuances of the global power play, but the emotional component is very high and rising quickly.

These things are seldom scripted.  Think of Rosa Parks refusing to move to the back of the bus, and the explosion of the Civli Rights Movement.

precisely why those who are aware of the nuances of the global power play need to spread counter-memes far & wide & quickly to get people to stop and think for themselves before the fire spreads.

flash point is here...time to get out your firesuits.

Put United States Marines inside the embassy grounds armed with any necessary weapon to defend what is technically US territory ... then just start mowing the attackers down in self defense ... works for me ... if the towelhead police won't protect our citizens ... then we need to do it ourselves

Libya is obviously Bush's fault. Those destroyers will be greeted as liberators just like the State Department scum holed up in their embassies (which exist to project US state power abroad, what could possibly go wrong there?) and currently experiencing the cumulative effects of many decades of US interference in the Middle East.

I'm still waiting for these Arabs to realize their own governments have sold them down the river and are every bit as culpable as the US government. I'm not holding my breath.

US Marine General Smedley Butler (1881-1940) and his 1935 booklet 'War is a Racket' - that is a great document of US history. Free online for anyone to read now.

Very curious that preview of the 'movie' that started all this killing - 'Innocent Muslims' - still showing on YouTube at this minute.

If you watch it, especially the long 12-minute version, it is clear it is an intelligence agency gig. It is a totally boring crappy dull stupid movie, no 'Life of Brian' at all.

And it is bullsh*t that it had a '$5 million' budget or whatever. It looks like it was made by a college student with one of those video-making programmes, and done very badly at that. - The style where you photograph a person in a white room, and then paste then on top of stock footage of the desert, fuzzy lines all around the person's body from the edit-pasting.

Best bet is this is Mossad and Israeli intelligence with their usual murderous con jobs in the media ... although Israeli writer Victor Kotsev is actually suggesting it was the Syrian government (!) that made the slander-Prophet video, to start riots in Arab Spring countries and prove to the West that 'regime change' in Syria would be a disaster. - Mossad much more likely I think, with Kotsev doing deflection-disinfo for his fellow Israelis.

Most stupid Muslims have no idea of the crap that is the Quiran .... the movie is accurate .... low budget, maybe .... but accurate !   We shouldn't have embassies in these pig states .... maybe quarter the embassies in destroyers off the coast a bit !  I am anxious to see new exposees on the Quiran .... keep 'em coming .... we'll all know what were talking about !

wow! a couple people willing to state the obvious- that islam is one f*d up religion. and mohammed was a total loser/idiot. now if only the few courageous islamic people can convince a few others to take courage and that could possibly gain a foothold and there could be a Reformation in that religion! all other religions are mostly peaceful, tolerant and introspective. but islam and the koran(yes yes there are 14 ways of spelling it save ur breath) think that it's ok to force others to 'believe' and if you don't then it's ok to lie to convince you they are good guys and if you still insist on being an infidel...well if it's a prob for islam then you will just have to Die(ask salmon rushdie or all the families of people beheaded and all the women oppressed/stoned and those at the embassies etc etc ad infinitum and ad nauseum). and apparently their god mohammed is so weak that they feel they must stand up for him when some1 makes a cheesy movie and actually tells the historical TRUTH in it! and their faith is so weak that if anyone questions it then they must be silenced by force

What is advanced? The 'Christian world' = living in an intellectual fog, belief in magical floating deities (though I seem to recall only one god, some call him God, others Yahweh, others Allah, not sure about this), inbreeding (?), and in general anger at their own inability to raise themselves out of chattel slavery and magical ignorance. Is America one of these so-called advanced civilizations with it's atrocious record of warmongering, theft, genocide, fraud, torture, etc.?

Most of the world, to include the Western world, never left the dark ages in anything but appearance.

Of course, you are delusional. What were the attackers saying when they went over the wall in Egypt? Something like: "Take a picture Obama, we are all Osama." He and the Dems kept spiking the football at their convention about killing Bin Laden.

Hillary Clinton was shocked that anyone in Libya, which the U.S. helped "liberate," would attack our consulate! How naive and stupid she and Obama are. They think they can go in and help knock out a couple of governments, and all the factions in those countries will stand in unity and sing kum ba yah with the U.S. This is what going around to governments around the world and bowing to leaders gets you. Total lack of respect. When world leaders don't respect you, Obama, and see you a weak, look out! Americans will die.

And now there is a report that the Marines guarding the embassy in Cairo were told by the State Department not to carry live amo in their guns!
