at any time that United States Armed Forces are engaged in hostilities outside the territory of the United States, its possessions and territories without a declaration of war or specific statutory authorization, such forces shall be removed by the President if the Congress so directs by concurrent resolution.
Is the president bound by the concurrent resolution mentioned above? This issue is analyzed in Chapter 6.
The most unique part of the book, Part IV, goes into rather meticulous detail in revealing the communications among the executive, the Congress, and the United Nations in the Iraqi-Kuwaiti conflict. The style of this part is deliberate. It seemed that the only way to objectively reveal the level and nature of consultation between the Congress and the president was to show verbatim messages between them while concurrently interweaving the United Nations resolutions which were bases for the Desert Shield and Desert Storm "use of force" responses by President George Bush to the Iraqi invasion and its aftermath. Finally, Part V examines the issues of declared and undeclared war as they are related to the War Powers Resolution.
