The RMA and War Powers; Strategic Insights: v.2, issue 9 (September 2003)
MetadataShow full item record
This Strategic Insight explores the impact of the Revolution in Military Affairs (RMA) on the roles played by Congress and the President when it comes to decisions for war and peace, and the way the RMA is changing the distribution of war-making powers between the two branches of government. While the information-driven RMA is changing the character of wars fought by the United States, it also seems to be shifting the war powers balance in favor of the executive branch. The RMA appears to be strengthening virtual Presidential war powers, while weakening the position of Congress.
