The gulf of Tonkin resolution was the Vietnam declaration of war, and was passed by the Democrats.
The voting of war credits for Iraq was the Iraq declaration of war, and was passed with broad bipartisan support. That sneaky Bush, arranged for the vote to take place just before the election and slimey members of the legislature were unwilling to vote against it so close to an election.
Congress passed war spending for Korea too.
We have nice parting gifts.
Close but no cigar. A constitutional Declaration of War is the proven way to unite a nation for war. No ‘serious consequences’ or double talk hasn’t cut it.
