It's only constitutional to get approval from congress, which will most likely happen due to the American mind being large and vast.

There must be a seperate representitive goverment organisation be made to focus solely onthese decisions. The president or congress should not be able to do it on their own

Yes, but only if congress takes longer than a designated time to answer.

Yes, as long as it's approved of by the military leaders. And there needs to be transparency and accountability. Impeachment should be very attainable against anyone abusing the power.

Yes but if there is little time to act and it is for the greater of America.

Yes, the president should be able to immediately authorize military forces against terrorist groups without Congressional approval when the national security is at risk. However, after 3 months, if the president is still using military forces then Congressional approval is needed to continue using forces.

Congress doesn’t need to approve everything, but the president cannot just do what they want for foreign affairs.

I believe the President should be able to hold great power over the military, but he or she must meet with higher officials to discuss. Congressmen can be corrupt and wave the vote for war
