  •  War is hell and everything else (12+ / 0-)

    The last time the US formally (i.e. according to the laws set forth in the constitution) declared war was in 1941.

    Our leaders justify bombing and killing by telling us we are in a state of war - even when none has been formally declared.

    If the president wants to use war as a justification for bombing and killing, the president should declare a state of war and have it approved by congress.

    Until that is done, the targeting and killing CANNOT be said to be done under "the rules of war", it is simply murder and assasination.
