War was not declared ON Iraq, but rather WITH Iraq on the war against terrorism.

Yes it is considered an "official" war. The war is not on Iraq but in Iraq. That is a note that shouldn't be confused.

Iraq is a law enforcement problem. NO NATION is at war with Iraq. The US was at war (was actually bombing North Vietnam with B-52's) North Vietnam. And don't bring up that point about "not being a declared war." The American Civil War wasn't declared either. Additionally, there hasn't been a US declared war since December 11, 1941 (when the US declared war on Germany & Italy).

A preventative war is a war that is declared with the goal of preventing a much larger war outbreak in the near future. An example would be the Iraq War (if we assume that Iraq did have Weapons of Mass Destruction). Under the concept of preventative war, the Invasion of Iraq would have the goal of preventing a chemical or nuclear war started by Iraq in the near future.

Congress not only approved the war, but declared it, because the President does not have that power.

The Iraq War aka the Occupation of Iraq, though it is not "officially" a declared war by the United States and is instead a military campaign. He also started/caused the Afghanistan war

Iraq: Congress authorized it, which constitutes a declaration of war. The last formal declaration of war was against Japan in World War II.

Technically, the "war on terrorism" is not a war. Bush never declared a war and he never got the approval of congress to go into Iraq.

The War in Iraq is in Iraq is a tautology. The reason it is called the Iraq War is specifically because it is in Iraq.
