Isn't there loopholes when it comes to getting permission from Congress to go to war. I thought the pres had some way of overriding a "no vote" when it came to going to war. I am sure that GW could go into Iran if Congress voted no on it. There is always a way around things when you are told no.

He can use military forces for 90 days without Congressional authorization as of the War Powers Resolution.
