    It is usually the responiblity of the nation where the embassy is located to defend the embassies. In most cases marine detachments could not be large enough nor have the weapons to defend. It all depends on the protector nation.
    We lost 241 marines in just one night in Lebannon, while not embassy guards they were part of a mission, and Reagan was smart enough to just pull the remainder out.
