The only time a President is authorized to attack without approval of congress is if the President is responding to an attack on the United States.
    The explanation you provide clears both Bush and Clinton from violating the war powers act.

    Iraq attacked members of our military routinely after the first Gulf War. In violation of a treaty they signed to boot.

    These are the people we are supporting in Syria. We have no business supporting these animals.
