The United States Embassy in Baghdad is under attack for the second day in a row as 100 US Marines showed up to fight back the assailants.

The protests started on December 31st when pro-Iran rioters stormed the American Embassy by force and set fire to it. The Americans within the embassy were forced to retreat to a safe room until help could arrive.

One militant allegedly even said, “God willing if this fire reaches inside the embassy, we will not spare a single employee.”

However, President Donald Trump called in the Marines right after the assault began, who showed up within hours to help secure the embassy.

The Marines are now in the process of pushing the rioters back using teargas to try and disperse them.

The riots were incited following a string of events this last week, starting with the death of a United States military contractor in an attack by Hezbollah. In response, the United States struck back at a Hezbollah location in Iraq, killing roughly 25 members of the terror group.

The Iraqi government, however, condemned the attack since the Pentagon did not notify them of the strike in their sovereign soil beforehand. The Iraqi and American militaries and governments frequently work hand-in-hand to fight terror organizations, so this was out of the normal order.

It was Iran, however, who seized on Iraq’s condemnation of the attack to incite the riots using their Popular Mobilization Force (PMF) to lead the assault against the American Embassy. As a result, President Donald Trump threatened “Big Consequences” for Iran’s assault on American soil. The Iranian Supreme Ayatollah Khamenei called Trump’s threat a bluff, however, stating, “You can’t do a damn thing!”

The Pentagon has since ordered another 750 U.S. troops to the region, leaving the option to add up to another 4000 troops in response to the Iranian aggression.
