If you go back into the early 60's, most of the country did not know that a war was being fought. As time went on, & the decision was made to send in more troops, the "body count" went up. All of a sudden many families & communities started to realize that young men were being killed in a non-declared war. The Presidents, the respective congresses did not have the guts to go before the people & ask for a decleration of war. Remember it was "guns & butter" time. The economy at home was good. Washington, nor big business, did not want to ask the people to sacrifce ala WW II. The bottom line is no American should be sent to fight in a foreign country for some politicans political agenda unless everyone in this country is prepared to sacriface & back a declaration of war.
