America and War: An Empire or a Republic?
We need to completely revoke the authorization for the War on Terror. The War on Terror is a Blank Check which we have been using to “cash in” wherever and whenever we want to drop bombs on someone. Although I would like to see us completely gone from the millennia old never ending quagmire in the Middle East, if we decide something needs to be done where our perceived enemy is not necessarily another Country, it would be far better to configure as follows (this is only an example):
- Declare War in Congress on ISIS (for example).
- Ask the Country or Countries where ISIS is located to form a temporary alliance with us in order to eliminate them.
- If they agree, we work together to eliminate the defined enemy, then leave the area completely.
- If they refuse, we Declare War in Congress on the Country or Countries who are harboring the defined enemy.
