Today on MSNBC, Virginia Democratic Senator Tim Kaine said, “I would strongly recommend that the administration come to Congress very, very soon and put some options on the table about what we should be able to do and what we should be able to do in tandem with neighbors and allies.”
Kaine says the Obama administration miscalculated Al Qaeda-aligned militants’ resolve in Iraq and hasn’t responded with a plan to fix the mess they created. “The administration has not provided any plan or suggestion . . . they need to come forward with a proposal and bring to Congress. And then let us debate about what we should do,” Kaine said.
Al Qaeda-aligned Sunni militants are currently heading to southern Iraq and are threatening to take control of Baghdad. This same group of Sunni Jihadists have already taken over the northern Iraqi cities of Mosul and Tikrit–with Iraqi government forces in rapid retreat.
The New York Times is reporting that this latest Sunni militant surge has been years in the making.
This little nugget was probably very inspirational news for this jolly ban of blood lusting barbarians:

And there’s no doubt that the Left will be blaming Iraq falling back into the hands of Islamists on George W. Bush. But that line won’t work this time. This is all President Peace Prize’s fault. Hell, even Joe Biden thought that Iraq would be “one of the great achievements” of Obama’s Presidency.
But, hey, don’t worry kiddies. According to Barry, “the world is less violent than it has ever been.”
