Is Iraq a congress declared war?

The official transcript of the Constitution of the United States of America may be found here at the link below. Article 1, Section 8, of the Constitution of the United States of American enumerates the powers of the Congress. It clearly states that "The Congress shall have Power...To declare War..." They did not declare war on Iraq as mandated by the Constitution. They passed a joint resolution authorizing the President to attack Iraq which is not the same as a Congressional Declaration of War.

What does article 1 section 8 of the constitution mean?

Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution enumerates, or specifies, the powers of the legislative branch of our government (the Congress). This is what Congress is able to do, no more, no less. To me, the most interesting of these powers is the ability to create & regulate money (i.e. its value). Sadly, Congress surrendered this power in 1913 when the Federal Reserve Act was passed. Since that time, the value of the dollar has plummeted dramatically.
