Hate to derail the ongoing conversation, but this calls for an answer...

Where's the official declaration of war from Congress, then? Authorization of limited military force is not the same as a declaration of war.

If we were really at war then there would be a draft, the civilian population would be concentrating the vast majority of its efforts on building planes, ships, tanks, missiles, bombs, guns, and ammunition, and the unemployment rate would be at a record low.

No, don't be fooled into thinking that just because the politicians call some military excursion a "war" that it actually is one.
The Constitution is not "the Supreme Law of the Land, except in the face of contradicting law which has not yet been overturned by the courts". It is THE SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND, PERIOD. You break your oath to uphold the Constitution if you don't refuse to enforce unadjudicated laws you believe are Unconstitutional.

The real world laughs at optimism. And here's why.
