13th Age is pretty great as a grab bag of awesome ideas to pull and slap onto your game of choice. I may never play a game of it, but it definitely inspired me. As for 5E, the best review I heard was: "The simplicity of OD&D, the quirkiness of AD&D, the versatility of 3.x, and the balance of 4E." That sells me, as those are my favorite aspects of those editions.

The implication of the statement: "US wars with Congressional approval since 1945: 0" is false by the common sense understanding of the word "war". That it is defensible only by a technical legal definition of "war" that does not, in fact, include real, actual wars means that such defenses are picking nits to win debate class, not proffering an actual point.

If you want to talk about whether formal declarations of war should precede any military action, that's a different discussion. The GP intimated that all US military conflicts were done unilaterally by the executive, without consultation of the legislature, and that is demonstrably false.
