    The Wars On Terror

    I say no. We have not really won a war since world war II. That's because congress has not declared war since the Attack on Pearl Harbor. Korea, Viet Nam, and now Iraq and Afghanistan [not counting ronald reagan's glorious victory in granada].

    Article 2, Section 8 says that only congress has the power to declare war. They can not delegate their power to the president. This would be against the seperation of powers doctrine in constitutional law.

    The ways in which the wars are being conducted are not enumerated in the constitution at all.

    Okay, I agree with you, but it's really just a matter of procedure. Had war been declared the Constitutional way, absolutely nothing would be different.

    Michael Meacher who served under Tony Blair publicly stated "The U.S. war on terror is bogus. The U.S. Government played some role in the destruction wrought on 9/11"

    I forgot to add...

    Yukihisa Fujita​ member of the Japanese Government stated in the Parliament of Japan "the U.S. story for 9/11 is a made up fairytale. We should investigate the real suspects for the deaths of the Japanese Nationals on 9/11"

    To tell you the truth I do not know if anything would be different except that we would be respecting the rule of law instead of circumventing the constitution.

    Moderator's Warning:
    The Wars On TerrorGoing to say this just once. This isn't in the conspiracy forums. If this starts verging into a conversation about conspiracies the thread is going to be moved to the appropriate place and those that cause it to be derailed off topic will be held responsable.

    Re: The Wars On Terror

    War on Drugs--War on Terror, War on stupid---War on ugly--time for a war on Wars. ---We truly are a peculiar Nation. but it's Home. We are smart enough, but it's like we don't think things through. Kinda Knee jerk, like some folks on here, that don't let facts stand in the way of what they believe to be true.

    Re: The Wars On Terror

    The consent of Congress (i.e., Dec of War) was received on all accounts. If not where are the impeachments that resulted?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    I believe that every president since JFK was killed could have been impeached. Ironically, the one who was, Clinton, was the biggest mistake in the history of impeachment.
