AUMF vs. Constitution

The use of AUMF (Autorization for the Use of Military Force) began under President Johnson , with his Gulf of Tonkin Resolution in 1964. He claimed that North Vietnam attacked our war ships in the Gulf of Tonkin and he got Congress to pass the war resolution (AUMF) that got us deeply involved in South Vietnam. Congress can declare War in Article I section 8 of the Constitution, not Resolutions on " Authorization for the Use of Military Force". Our nation is either at War or not at War. When Congress declares War all of the nation's resources, it's people are committed to wining the War and supporting our Armed Forces. The AUMF is unconstitutional, confusing, and ripe for political criticism, which has been it's history. The last time we used the Constitutional way to send our men and women to war was WWII. We have won all of our wars when Congress declared War Constitutionally. Our "Conflicts" since WWII have all caused conflict at home among Americans because of the use of AUMF to send our men and women off to fight and die. These “Conflicts” all end with no victory, which restores our terms for peace. Nothing is resolved. The use of AUMF doesn't unite us against the threat, it divides us. We have the greatest guide ever created by man to run a Government, it is called the U.S. Constitution. Every time we allow our politicians to side step it, we get into trouble. When our politicians try to side step the Constitution, it's grounds to vote them out of office as soon as possible. Sending our troops into battle is WAR.

Ironside, the end must be nigh. I agree with you.

I agree. We need to stay far removed from Syria, Iran,Pakistan, and any Arab/Israeli squabbles.War should be reserved for dire emergencies which represent a clear and present danger.

Absolutely, we should not commit to war unless we formally declare it and then once declared we should not end it without total victory!!!

Guys, I am not sure our country has the guts to commit to a declared war any longer. Too many people are too self involved.

Unless the enemy lands at Tybee, or Long Island or Long Beach, not that many people are interested. Even when the enemy lives among us, hi-jacks planes and kills thousands, most folks outside the blast zone lose interest very quickly. If that were not the case, our veteran-to-non-veteran ration would not be nearly 1-100.

Ever time we are attacked/provoked, I would if this will be the one we, as a nation, fail to respond to.
