The U.S. congress never declared war against Iraq, Viet- Nam or Korea There are 5 wars in which the United States formally declared war against a foreign nation, namely, the War of 1812, the Mexican-American War, the Spanish-American War, World War I, and World War II. 

The United States has not formally declared war with Iraq. However the gutless, handing power over to Kings Bush and Obama, the Iraq Resolution,  or the Iraq War Resolution (formally the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002 [1], Pub.L. 107-243, 116 Stat. 1498, enacted October 16, 2002, H.J.Res. 114) is a joint resolution (i.e., a law) passed by the United States Congress in October 2002 as Public Law No: 107-243, authorizing the Iraq War. 
In the U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 8, Congress should have the power "To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water." 

Now the bullshit War Powers Resolution of 1973 puts a limit on the ability of the U.S. President to send troops into foreign country and making the President notify Congress within 60 days, however, he can extend it to 90 days.  So the Imperial President  can get the U.S. into a war anytime he/she likes.  The president can start a war by sending in troops to a foreign land, like into Vietnam. It's not technically the "Vietnam War" but a Vietnam conflict, which is absurd. Since Congress did not specifically declare war and he authorize funding of the war, it is reasonable to say that the "Iraq War" unconstitutional.
