On Monday, Senator Rand Paul released the draft for a Declaration of War resolution against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), which he plans to introduce to Congress in December.

Paul began the resolution by citing Article I, section 8, of the United States Constitution, which gives Congress the power to declare war. He stated that due to the fact that ISIS “has declared war on the United States and its allies,” along with the fact that ISIS “presents a clear and present danger to United States diplomatic facilities in the region,” the U.S. Congress should declare war in return.

The state of war between the United States and the organization referring to itself as the Islamic State, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), which has been thrust upon the United States, is hereby formally declared pursuant to Article I, section 8, clause 11, of the United States Constitution.

The resolution went on to state that it would give the President authorization to “use the Armed Forces of the United States to protect the people and facilities of the United States in Iraq and Syria against the threats” posed by ISIS.

In addition to taking action against ISIS, Paul seeks to repeal the authorization of the “use of United States Armed Forces against Iraq,” which was signed by President Bush in 2002.

The resolution also proposed that the “authorization for the use of military force,” which was signed in 2001, and has been used by President Obama to carry out airstrikes in Yemen and Somalia, would be terminated exactly one year after the resolution is authorized.

Regarding the possibility of using ground troops to combat ISIS, the resolution stated that ground troops would only be used “as necessary for the protection or rescue of members of the United States Armed Forces or United States citizens from imminent danger” posed by ISIS.
