For 239 years my beloved Corps has fought more battles, incursions, expeditions and wars than I care to count. In all that time they have retreated from the field of battle only once, at the Battle of Bladensburg during the War of 1812 after the rout of the Army and militia forces. No Marine under the command of a Marine officer has ever surrendered while they still had the means to resist. The only Marine surrenders, Guam, Wake and Bataan in ’41,  were all ordered by Navy or Army commands.

This week embassy Marines in Yemen were ordered to evacuate the U.S. Embassy there. This nothing new, Marines have had to do this many times. This time however they were ordered to turn over their personal weapons to the Iranian backed Shia Houthi rebels who have toppled the pro-west Yemeni government. They were then evacuated on civilian aircraft, despite the fact that a Marine MEU was sitting off shore ready to conduct a NEO-op, also standard duty for Marines. These orders all came from the State Department.

Just a few short months ago King Narcissus was touting the success of his royal grand strategy against the non-Islamic non-terrorist misunderstood adherents of the religion which must not be slandered and used Yemen as a shining example of The Lightbringer’s military prowess. Now his State Department, the very same sodding dolts who sent a tone deaf, washed up hippie singer to Fwance to show our “solidarity” after the Charlie Hebdo massacre, has ordered our Marines to surrender their weapons and run away. May God and the Iraqis watch the backs of the 300 Marines at Al Asad, because this traitorous bunch of cowards sure as fuck won’t.

From what I had read elsewhere, the personal weapons were destroyed via removing the bolt and smashing everything with sledgehammers and the crew served weapons were reported as destroyed. Not sure how they would accomplish that unless armories have a stash of WP grenades on hand and ready to go. And they could have been evacuated by the planes at… Read more »

I want to know who issued the order for the Marines to destroy and turn over their weapons in the first place? Was it the ambassador? I heard it came out of the state department? That worthless idiot Kerry? Did he issue the order? It’s one thing for the Marines to destroy weapons and equipment they can’t take with them,… Read more »

I also read that they were ordered to leave all of their vehicles in fully operable condition (“with the keys in the ignition” is how the story was written) in the airport parking lot.

The Embassy should have a good supply of thermite charges to destroy classified files and cryptographic equipment.

Ya know, y’all (Did I spell that correctly?) just don’t understand that you cannot allow these Islamists an inch. Every time you give in to these petty tyrants they want more and more. You only have to look as far as Obama ordering a Marine at the White House to hold his umbrella. The next thing you know Marines are… Read more »
