While a President may need to take immediate defensive action against another attacking country without the permission of Congress any such action should be limited in nature. We should have no entangling alliances that brings about a what is termed a police action. The US Constitution is very specific that only Congress can make a declaration of War and semantics over words and actions should not be misconstrued in any way. Furthermore the Constitution does not give the Congress the right to defer this right to any other authority like the President or the United Nations. We also believe that Congress must define at the time War is declared what are the acceptable term to the end of any war that it chooses to involve the United States in.
