    Constitutionality of NATO

    I need help understanding something. In the US only Congress has the power to declare war, but in NATO the US has agreed to rush to the defence of their allies when under attack essentially bringing them into war. Isn't that considered unconstitutional? It was one of the reasons why the US...
