Presidential Governance as the Best Alternative Waging and Winning Wars
However, the effectiveness of the two varies. Historical wars have proven that is the most efficient form of governance when it comes to wagging and wining wars is presidential form. In a country governed by parliamentary system of governance, leaders gather in parliaments to discuss the way forward. In most cases, the armed forces are involved in battles. During war, decision-making is critical, the time required to make a certain decision would determine whether tat nation is going to defeat the other nation in the battle. A lot of time is wasted before decisions are made when parliamentary approach is undertaken, for instance, Anti-War democrats resisted the decision made by President Bush when he declared war against Afghanistan and Iraq on grounds that the right of congress had been violated.
Presidents compared to those declared by the congress, For instance, apart from the First World War have declared many of wars. All other attacks were initiated without the congress approval in the United States. This is an indication that this system works. All the battles unleashed in the Middle East were enacted through presidential orders. According to the act of war, the president was supposed to wait for 90 days before the congress (who acted as modern parliaments) gave their approval. However, most presidents have been ignoring this war act citing that the second article, subsection ii provided that it was their mandate to initiate solders in battles. For this matter, parliamentary leadership is perceived to be more declaring than war waging and winning4.
In 1950, Harry Trumann who was then the president of the United States ignored the congress decision and went ahead to battle with Koreans. He later on backed this move with the mandate given to the United Nations security resolution. The entire operation was because of strategies held by a team of lawyers working representing president Obama in the ruthless battle between that involved Pentagon and the C. I. A. the mission was successful, however, several innocent people were injured including Mr Awlaski’s 16-year-old boy. The incidence evoked controversies but eventually the whole situation was termed to be justifiable. When eventually war ensued, the president had every one sensitized psychologically of magnitude of the looming war. It reported that this declaration fostered inspirations among the American citizens and prepared it for what the president termed it as “Total war”.
Henceforth, the president went ahead to prepare one of the greatest battalion ever recorded in the history of war. The established troops managed to stay intact throughout the war. Eventually, his troops triumphed against their enemies. While playing the presidential role, the president sorted to find out a diplomatic solution and settle American matters in Cuba. Eventually, Kinley made a conclusion that Spain had drastically declined from being among the superpowers; consequently, Kinley deployed the battleship Maine to Havana a move conspired to ensure that the U. S citizens and property protection as this is the main role of most of the leaders. Still hoping for a diplomatic solution, the president hope to end war in a diplomatic manner, through carefully selecting some of the sentiments made by members of the public, he managed to record one of the shortest and glorious battles in America9.
Polk played a vital role in the Mexican War proving that Presidential form of leadership was more efficient compared to the parliamentary leadership. This war provides proof that presidential leadership is more fruitful when it comes to battles than parliamentary form of leadership. One of the most successful German governed through presidential leadership was the leadership of Adolf Hitler. He led the entire Germany nation into a party called the Nazi, this party aimed at improving the lives of German people and restoring the dignity of their country, Hitler became its leader in 1921. Through his moving speech, Hitler led the people of Germany into believing that their education, economic stagnation, hunger and economic inflation could only be remedied if the Jews were sent out of the German nation, he successfully managed to make Germans develop hatred against the Jews something that caused an eruption of massive Jewish killings.
It was war. Finally, he ended up becoming a prominent politician and eventually a general in the 1812 war. His achievements include the defeated he made working with British Army during the battle of 1815 with New Orleans solders. Andrew Jackson will remain in the books of record for embracing the presidential kind of leadership that led his solders to win battles. John F Kennedy will always remain among leaders who sat a record in application of presidential form of leadership while wagging wars. Supposedly, Kennedy would have been the one supposed to rein on behalf of Camelot who had directed a small boat PT-109 to sail in the Pacific Ocean spying on their Japanese enemies. In 1944, Bush together with one of his crewmember broke into a TBM avenger and blew off a bomb on one of the radio stations that was ran by the Japanese government.
When they were close to the mark, they got themselves encompassed in thick hostile of flying machine fire. Bush’s plane was struck by fire and set burning, yet he figured out how to drop his bombs and steer his plane far from the island before safeguarding over the untamed sea. The future president parachuted into the water and securely conveyed an existence pontoon, yet his crewmembers—radioman John Delaney and heavy weapons specialist William White—were both murdered. Bush would have ban through four hours skimming powerlessly in his pontoon, and was almost blocked by a Japanese watercraft until the point that a kindred Avenger pilot strafed the vessel and pushed it away. Therefore, multinational states should utilise presidential approach during times of war or when faced with any challenged whatsoever.
