I believe our military needs to wipe out all the terrorists that are identified. It worries me that there is not yet a clear list of these terrorists. Before we commit our troops I would want to see the objectives and targets clearly outlined.

During the more than 200 year history of the US, congress has only declared war 5 times. During that time, including the Indians wars, we have been at war more than 120 times.

If you declare war, at it's end, if there is an end, you must sit down with someone to sign a peace treaty to end it. Who would we sit down with?
