What happens in other countries?

A parliamentary process before deployment into conflict occurs in the US, UK and most European countries.

Did you know, in 1973, after the debacle of the Vietnam War, the US Congress enacted the War Powers Act? This is a federal law intended to check the president’s power to commit the US to an armed conflict without the consent of Congress.

This is not a radical concept. In fact, we are one of the only Western democratic countries without a transparent process.
