SANAA, Yemen - Protesters angered by an anti-Islam film have stormed the U.S. Embassy compound in Yemen's capital, Sanaa.
The protesters were on the embassy's grounds but did not enter the building housing the offices.
Before storming the embassy compound on Thursday, the demonstrators removed the embassy's sign on the outer wall and set tires ablaze. Once inside the compound, they brought down the U.S. flag and burned it.
Yemen is home to al-Qaida's most active branch and the United States is the main foreign supporter of the Yemeni government's counterterrorism campaign. The government on Tuesday announced that al-Qaida's No. 2 leader in Yemen was killed in an apparent U.S. airstrike, a major blow to the terror network.
Use the drones on these assholes.

Edit: I fucking misspelled embassy. God Dammit!

From the NY times
[h=1]Turmoil Spreads to U.S. Embassy in Yemen[/h] [h=6]By NASSER ARRABYEE and ALAN COWELL[/h] SANA, Yemen — Turmoil in the Arab world linked to a contentious video denigrating the Prophet Muhammad spread on Thursday to Yemen, where hundreds of protesters stormed the United States Embassy, two days after assailants killed the American ambassador in Libya and crowds tried to overrun the embassy compound in Cairo.
Witnesses said Yemeni security forces were trying to disperse a crowd at the fortified embassy compound in the east of Sana, the capital.
Protesters broke through an outer perimeter protecting the embassy and set fire to a building but were forced to retreat after trying to plunder furniture and computers, the witnesses said. News reports said security forces guarding the embassy fired into the air as protesters set fire to two vehicles and burned tires.
The crowd gathered a day after the embassy warned Americans in a posting on its Web site that “in the wake of recent events in Libya and Egypt, there is the possibility of protests in Yemen, and specifically in the vicinity of the U.S. Embassy, in the coming days.”
“The U.S. Embassy continues to recommend that U.S. citizens avoid large gatherings. Even demonstrations or events intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and possibly escalate into violence. U.S. citizens in Yemen are urged to monitor local news reports and to plan their activities accordingly,” the Web posting said.
With American Marines and naval vessels heading for Libya, where the American ambassador, J. Christopher Stevens, and three of his staff were killed on Tuesday in an attack on the United States consulate, and new crowds reported gathering in Tunis and Cairo overnight, the reports from Yemen added to the already volatile mix of passions that have commingled with the initial exuberance of the so-called Arab Spring.
A Reuters dispatch from Dubai quoted witnesses as saying demonstrators smashed windows of security offices outside the embassy before breaking through the main gate. Security guards opened fire and there were reports of casualties on both sides but no details were immediately available, Reuters said.
In an attempt to defuse the passions in his own country, President Mohamed Morsi of Egypt, was quoted on Thursday as saying the attacks on American personnel were unacceptable. Speaking in a television address while visiting Brussels, the Egyptian leader said he supported peaceful demonstrations but rejected attacks on personnel and diplomatic missions.
“What happened is unacceptable, rejected. The Prophet Muhammad taught us to respect human life," Bloomberg News quoted Mr. Morsi as saying. But he also warned against maligning Islam’s founding prophet. “The Prophet Muhammad and Islamic sanctities are red lines for all of us,” he said.
The initial eruption of protests in Egypt and Libya came on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks in the United States.
Referring to the killings in Benghazi, American and European officials said on Wednesday that while many details about the attack remained unclear, the assailants seemed organized, well trained and heavily armed and they appeared to have at least some level of advance planning. But the officials cautioned that it was too soon to tell whether the attack was related to the Sept. 11 commemoration.
On that same day in Yemen this week, a car bomb exploded on Tuesday alongside a convoy of vehicles used by Yemen’s defense minister, killing seven bodyguards and five civilians in the heart of the capital, while the minister escaped unharmed, government and hospital officials said. The attack came one day after a top operative of Al Qaeda in Yemen was killed in what Yemeni officials called an American drone strike.
Those episodes and the violence on Thursday spoke to the continued volatility in poverty-stricken Yemen, where the United States is seeking to eradicate militant cells held responsible for a number of conspiracies, including an attempt by an operative of Al Qaeda to detonate a bomb hidden in his clothes on a flight bound for Detroit in December 2009.
The blast on Tuesday in downtown Sana tore through a thoroughfare between the cabinet office and the state radio building, shattering buildings and wrecking a vehicle carrying the seven bodyguards, seconds after the minister himself, Maj. Gen. Mohammed Nasser Ahmed, had passed by in another vehicle after a weekly cabinet meeting.
Nasser Arrabyee reported from Sana, Yemen, and Alan Cowell from London.

Close the embassies. Bring everyone home. Get the fuck outta the middle east. And hurry up and come up with a solution/alternative to oil. We need a "in this decaaahd" moment from someone.

Yeah, why the hell do we have an embassy in Yemen? Who wants to go there? The only thing that has come out of that shithole in the past decade is Islamic terrorists.

Not theft from infidels. Since we have no rights in the first place, that property isn't actually "ours."

Pretty sure the embassies aren't the ones digging all the oil up out of the Saudi desert.

We need to take a hard line against the governments who aren't able to protect embassies on their soil. There are plenty of reports regarding police trying to deal (and some of them simply running away because they weren't prepared) but it's not enough. If they're not willing to provide adequate security then we're should up and leave, taking most of our support with.

Might be a bit hard considering you can pick up an AK47 new in some of these countries for $50 and a used one for $6...

Fucking obama didn't foresee the need for US to reinforce our embassies on the anniversary of 9/11. He was busy. Michelle Malkin speaks for me on this whole embarrassing debacle...

The police should have them too. It's not unreasonable to demand protection if you're not going control your apes.

To be fair, it's not a 9/11 related event. There probably wasn't any much to suggest any reprisal attacks. That said, there's no reason why embassies in that part of the world aren't better protected in the first place.

Dead on. If our government had any balls we'd start significantly cutting aid (which is too much already) to these countries.

I blame the State Department for not allowing our Marines to have ammo.

No ammo makes it next to impossible to stop evildoers.

Typical opinionated uninformed lib. They're 'our' security, in that we contract security personnel to provide security. But i agree on the second part that we should stop playing british empire jr.

You do realize that embassies have they're own security and the host nation does not have to ensure it's security right? It's like if i parked my car at hourly rate parking lot in compton. Is it the responsibility of compton if my shit gets stolen? You go anywhere at your own risk. Let's blame governments and individuals for us being dumb enough to park our shit in hostile areas. Brilliant.

Embassies are a tad more important for the host nation than your Corolla is to the government. The analogy you make is pretty silly.

Umm... Not true. Article 22 of the Vienna Convention:

2. The receiving State is under a special duty to take all appropriate steps to protect the premises of the mission against any intrusion or damage and to prevent any disturbance of the peace of the mission or impairment of its dignity

You do realize that I'm talking about the police forces whom are the first line of defense for embassies? Even an opinionated uninformed lib such as yourself should've been able to pick that up pretty easily.
