Perhaps I missed something in my study of semi-current events. I believe President Bush (43) declared war on Iraq with the approval of our senate and congress and a pat on the back from the U.N. and NATO counties. Afghanistan has also been touted as the longest War the United States has ever been involved in. Our military involvement in Vietnam was much longer by more than a decade more than Afghanistan. Did something slip past me or did I read the question wrong. I haven't had my full ration of caffeine this morning so anything is possible.
