Has Congress declared war?

I have a question.

Doesn't the Congress of the United States have to vote on a declaration of war?

The reasoning behind this, I thought, was to prevent a usurping of authority by the president.

If so, members of Congress would have to have a country to bring this declaration against, wouldn't they?

So, if this is so, who or what are we at war with? And, if so, are we at war by presidential edict or by a congressional declaration?

Could you answer this for me? I am confused.
