Sounds like the same discussion I had yesterday with a co-worker. After we finished talking I punched him in the face, when he tried to punch me back I told to stop because we weren't in a fight. Angrily he said we were in a fight because I punched him. I told him he's wrong because I never declared we were in a fight as I punched him so we weren't in a fight, just like he said dropping bombs on a foreign military base "isn't a war."
Okay, I didn't punch my co-worker but I did state my analogy to him but he still insisted what Trump did wasn't an act of war thus didn't need to be declared by Congress.
