The Vietnam War was not declared by Congress. It was started when the President sent troops.

Some believed that wars could not be fought unless they were "Declared Wars." However, Vietnam nor the US Civil War were declared wars.

The War of 1812 against Britain was a declared war. The War against Spain was declared. The Korean War was man's FIRST atomic age war (the atomic age commenced in 1945 with the detonation of the first atomic bombs); declared wars, which infer total wars, can no longer be fought, as total wars require the use of ALL available weapons such as nuclear weapons (chemical weapons are banned by treaty since 1925). The Korean War was a limited war (limited to non-nuclear weapons) and not a declared war; NO US FOUGHT WAR HAS BEEN A DECLARED WAR SINCE WW2; the dawn of the Atomic Age. the number of declared wars by congress is 5 they are : The War of 1812 (1812-1815) , The Mexican War (1846-1848) , The Spanish-American War (1898-1899), World War I (1917-1918), World War II (1941-1945)

World War 1 and World War 2 were the last declared wars that the US participated in.I'm sure however that there have been small regional warsafter World War 2, that the US did not participate in that were declared wars by the regional participants in those wars.

Congress voted to fund (support with tax payers money) Operation Iraqi Freedom. The last time the US declared war was during WW2. The Korean and Vietnam Wars were Limited Wars (Limited to Conventional Weapons-No Nukes; Total Wars would include the use of NUCLEAR WEAPONS).
