They are my genuine sentiments, so I hope they read that way.

Excellent article, Germaine. One thing to note is that the President doesn’t have to go through Congress to start an “armed conflict”- but there are some restrictions in place for whenever they do. In order to maintain conflicts for longer than a month, Congress needs to be on-board with the idea. So I wouldn’t say the President has ultimate power over declaring “war”, but they do have the ability to get the ball rolling. (We haven’t been in a conventionally declared war since WWII.)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
