If the US wants to implement a war overseas, it must be done within the parameters of the US Constitution, where only Congress, not the President can wage war. Smarter politicians like Robert Byrd have a pocket copy of the US Constitution in a little brown book. Ron Paul also insisted that we, and especially politicians, should read the Constitution more often, so that our liberties are preserved.

Political development takes time! That is why the average length of the eighty-three insurgency wars since 1850 is over eleven-and-a-half years. There is just too much American impatience and ignorance about the real processes.
