Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) is a euphemistic declaration of war

Truth be told, this AUMF move is a move to declare war by another name.

It's a declaration of war, without using the term "war," against the Taliban, al Qaeda, ISIS and associated forces in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, and Libya.

The war-by-another-name (euphemism) declares that the war zone may be expanded by the President subject to the the President reporting the expansion to Congress within 48 hours.
