We both know the likelihood of Ron’s ever asking for a declaration of war in the first place is only if there is a resounding hue and cry for it since he is plainly anti-war. Of course he would ask Congress in that case for a declaration. The intent of my statement was not to argue Ron would “approve” of a preemptive war. Your use of the word “approve” is subjective. My point was to state Ron would abide by an official declaration of war by Congress if they insisted on it. Ron has consistently emphasized, "if you insist on going to war may I insist that you do it the right way and that's presenting your case to the people, that is the Congress and get an act of war!” He has consistently framed the issue of declaring war only as the last resort vs. something he would approve.
