Is it just a coincidence that NK has promised war if any of their ships are stopped and boarded? Iran has also launched warships into international waters. I should think that Obama should be over there talking to these people, since he said diplomacy is the key to solving foreign problems.
No one needs to invade any of these nations in order to force compliance. No one has ever endorsed a strategy that suggested "invasion." This is just more of the typical emotional hysterics from the left with no basis in fact or reality.

Nothing in the constitution says that the ONLY way for the US to be at a state of war is for Congress to decare war; it states only that the power for the US to declare war is reserved to Congress.
Another state, thru its actions, can bring the US into a state of war, regardless of any actions Congress may or may not take.
