Reevaluate how we declare war

According to the Constitution, only Congress has the authority to declare war.and it’s not been done since December 11, 1941 (World War II). I think something we, as Congress, must do is reevaluate how we declare war or the use of military force. We need to stick to the Constitution regardless of who is President. Today, however, we can not change the fact that we ARE at war and we must be in it to win. We must support our troops. We must support and pray for our leaders and our President.

Everyone thought Saddam had WMDs

Even Clinton thought Saddam had those weapons (of mass destruction). It was reasonable to conclude that he was lying about those weapons. With all the mass graves that we found, wouldn’t anyone consider that wood chipper a weapon of mass destruction, or at least gross destruction. That is the kind of man that needs to be stopped. If we had taken this type of early action during Hitler’s reign of terror, (Constitutionally of course) who knows, maybe WWII would have never happened.

Let Military leaders decide when to pull out of war

Military leaders know you only pull out of war when your objectives are achieved. I believe they are confident with their strategy and their objectives. No loss of life is acceptable. I know what it is like to see your friends leave and possibly never see them again. I know how they sacrifice with experimental immunizations to combat biological and chemical warfare and only later to learn that your children may never be normal.
