Presidents and High Militaries declare war. We Fight, die and suffer in those wars. Millions die that shouldent have died. Wouldent it be fair if 2 countrys fight, its not a War, just a 1on1 with the Presidents, and whoever survives wins the war? I mean, they wanted War, so they can fight it themselves instead of hiding like a coward and sending in thousands to die?

If you think that presidents declare war then you need to read up on the constitution.

but the president can declare mini wars that he can call "conflicts" it's been done so many times, it sucks that they have that power sometimes but I guess it helps in foreign aid occasionally

If you take into fact that we haven't declared war since WWII, presidents technically do wage war for all intensive purposes. It's just referred to as policing, or some **** like that

I ******* hate that no one told me, so just sharing the knowledge.

He is obviously correct though, that it is the rich and powerful that declare war. And they let the poor fight the war for them. Besides, the president can declare war, he just needs the support of congress.

Not true. He can send in troops fur up to 90 days, but that is not a formal declaration of war. Anything beyond that -- up to and including an actual declaration of war -- must come directly from Congress. The President can never declare war.
