    no attack is imminent.

    From the same Wikipedia entry on the subject.  The second sentence of the entry, in fact.

    The resolution was adopted in the form of a United States Congress joint resolution; this provides that the President can send U.S. armed forces into action abroad only by declaration of war by Congress, "statutory authorization," or in case of "a national emergency created by attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or its armed forces."
