I have seen several wars in my lifetime that weren't approved by congress. Typically, these wars are preceded by exaggerations and lies such as Iraq's Weapons of Mass Destruction or the lies about the Gulf of Tonkin, a deliberate misrepresentation by our Government to justify the war in Viet Nam. What did we accomplish there that justified losing 58,000 men and women? Now, we are at war in the middle East for 20+ years and what have we accomplished other than further destabilizing an already unstable area of the world? Politicians and corporations fan the flames of these wars for profit. I want vigorous deliberation and debate by the legislative Branch before we go to war.
