World War Two was a declared war as specified by the Constitution. There has been no other clearly declared war since then, though for some there have at least been "resolutions" of some sort. For a President to send Americans out to kill people in other countries without some form of declaration or authorization by our legislature violates the Constitution both in practice and in spirit. I think the Founders would be appalled. No President should have the unilateral power of life or death over anyone without due process. If it's war, then call it a war and get the Congressional buffoons off their behinds and let them take a principled stand on something. I guess this is the 0.1% of the time I humbly disagree with Dr. Sowell.
