War has only been declared 3 times.. Civil War 1861/A. Lincoln (R) - WWI 1917/W. Wilson (D) - WWII/Roosevelt (D) //// War was never declared in reference to Korea, Viet Nam, Bosnia, Kosovo, Desert Storm, Iraq, and others. We were attacked on 09/11/01, invaded Afghanistan thereafter, and then Iraq in 2003. Our brave men and women are dying over there on a daily basis, and yet eight years later 9/11 remains unavenged.. but we must remember, this is NOT war, it's 'conflict'.
