Starting wars is not up to the President; it's up to Congress. The Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) from 2001 was meant to pursue the terrorists of 9/11, not for expanding military actions throughout the Middle East and against any country or group suspected of terrorism. Congress has ceded way too much power to the presidency in the past 20 years and it has to stop: we don't want a dictator or king. It's time to revoke the AUMF and write new laws around starting war. America cannot afford another war and we cannot continue to pursue military action for any reason chosen by any president.
