DOes the congress need to declare war before military action in Syria?

Simple question:

Does the congress need to declare war on the official Government inSyria before we hit them with our missiles and Air Force...

Or should the president be able to attack another country without this authorization?

(poll coming)

Do they need to? No. They can pretty much do anything they want.

I guess maybe it'd be nice if congress approved of the decision to blow up people in other places.

I trust Obama to do the right thing. He and Biden have been very direct in statements that the President cannot just go shooting off missiles without authority.

The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.

I hope there is a huge public debate and congress weighs all options and costs, very openly.

I hope they reach out to the constituents and talk to them before holding a vote.

We should not undertake this shit lightly.

Does passing measures that fund the military actions count? Cause I know they will at least do that if anything does go down.

If they don't, there will be an outcry for impeachment proceedings. Whether they actually take place or not is another matter, but I expect the cry to be very audible.

Here's what one Constitutional Scholar™ has to say about this question:

"The president does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat" - Barack Obama, 2007.

Threat to whom? And what does imminent mean?

From Wikipedia:

The War Powers Resolution of 1973 (50 U.S.C. 1541-1548)[1] is a federal law intended to check the president's power to commit the United States to an armed conflict without the consent of Congress. 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 authorization of Congress or in case of "a national emergency created by attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or its armed forces."
The War Powers Resolution requires the President to notify Congress within 48 hours of committing armed forces to military action and forbids armed forces from remaining for more than 60 days, with a further 30 day withdrawal period, without an authorization of the use of military force or a declaration of war. The resolution was passed by two-thirds of Congress, overriding a presidential veto. The War Powers Resolution has been violated in the past by President Reagan in regards to the aid to the Contras in Nicaragua and by President Clinton in 1999, during the bombing campaign in Kosovo. All incidents have had congressional disapproval, but none have had any successful legal actions taken against the president for violations.[2][3] All presidents since 1973 have declared their belief that the act is unconstitutional. [4][5]
