Congress ceded its power to declare war and initiate the use of force long ago.
The wussies gave it all away because at least some knew and could convince the rest, that a consensus for war could rarely if ever be achieved in such a body.
But that was the whole point of that part of the Constitution, to make it very difficult to gain a consensus of We the People (represented by Congress) to declare war.
You screwed the pooch, Congress.
And don't blame me - I never voted for any of the bastards.
