Wars are supposed to be publicly debated. The purpose of this is to avoid wars which the public doesn’t understand and focus on critical fights, not Presidential whim.

When was the last declared war?

Another good question. We haven’t had that question of declaring war debated since the Korean War began on 25 June 1950. Korea was sold to Americans as a “police action” under the UN when it was a real war. There was no declaration of war as happened in WW2 — and there haven’t been any since 8 and 11 December 1941. [America declared war on Japan only on 8 December; it declared war on Germany and Italy on 11 December after those two countries had declared war on America.]

The last one we won.

In Afghanistan we're sending off our conservative country boys to battle terrorists for the benefit of our commie city slickers. Terrorists do not blow up farms, they blow up high density targets full of Democrats. Let the city slickers send their metrosexuals to Afghanistan and leave conservative America out of it.
