Marines show up in Iraq and protesters at embassy finally back off

Two days of nonsense from protesters appears to be over as the Marines showed up and protesters finally backed off. Protesters were throwing rocks and water bottles, doing vandalism on security cameras, and even attempted to storm the embassy. That prompted a response from the Pentagon, who sent 100 Marines overseas. 650 other soldiers are reportedly on the way as well.

The protests appear to be a response to what the US did after an American civilian contractor lost his life.

A report on Al Jazeera stated that "the US said it launched the attacks on Sunday - killing at least 25 fighters - in Iraq and Syria in response to a rocket attack on Friday near Kirkuk, which killed an American civilian contractor - an assault Washington blamed on Kataib Hezbollah."
