    Especially since they'd get the declaration of war if they asked for it. Congress isn't going to say no, it'd be "against the troops" somehow.

    youngstown sheet & tube co. v. sawyer


    truman tried to nationalize that company because the korea war was going on - the supreme court said he could not do it = but in seeing the case - they admitted that the prez duz not need congress to go to war


    that is why we should never have a demokrat president - they start wars than find excuses not to win them and blame republicans for tricking them into going to war =

    The people we have been bombing and shooting. Or do we just continue as we have because it's too much of a hassle to follow the constitution.

    Is the action in Libya a war? That's the first question.

    Declare war on whom? A better question is why liberal administrations get away with using NATO for their dirty work.
