Should the president be able to commit troops to war?
Debate Rounds (1)
Another reason people think they should is because it has been done for over two hundred years! We have done it this long and had no problems at all. The Korean War didn't involve congress at all ! Since we' e had no problems so far why change?
When the president can commit troops to war he can prevent consequences of attacks. When 911 happened the president save many lives. If you stop an attack before its climax you can prevent damage. Bush even killed Osama Binladin with a unit he committed
One other thing is the general can intervene. If you attack you may lose many troops. It would also prevent irrational behavior. The last thing is checked choice. It would prevent loosing troops. you would also not lose money. You can also prevent over reaction.
