The Lesson this week addresses the fifth course objective, specifically, how the Presidency operates.
From the readings in Lesson 3, we discussed Congress’s quandry regarding the employment of combat forces abroad. During the Vietnam Conflict, President Nixon employed hundreds of thousands of combat forces into Southeast Asia without approval of Congress. Eventually, Congress felt compelled to pass the War Powers Resolution of 1973 (over his veto). As such, the president can still employ troops abroad to defend US interests, but then is required to notify Congress of the employment within 48 hours, and then withdraw them within 60 days – unless Congress formally declares war or authorizes the use of military force. However, subsequent presidents have not all followed this Resolution. This has caused a rift between the president and Congress that still exists today.
For this Forum assignment, please discuss the issue of how American military forces should be employed in conflict abroad. Is it strictly the president’s call? What is Congress’s role? Are the restrictions in the War Powers Resolution of 1973 realistic? How should this issue be resolved? Please use examples in your post.

1) The influence of scholar Richard Whiteâ€™s work on North American history is incontestable, but perhaps it has gone too far. What might be called â€œthe middle grounding of early American historyâ€ has led scholars to exaggerate the extent of â€œethnic mixingâ€ in colonial North America. â€œEthnic cleansing,â€ after all, was the chief legacy of European colonialism in North America â€“ both before and after 1776. Evaluate this position, assessing the soundness of its thesis and the validity of its critique of recent scholarship on colonial and national North American frontiers (including ones which do not lie within the present boundaries of the United States).
2) Pick a legend from any Native American group. They are listed below in alphabetical order and in the Week 3 powerpoint.
5) Historians have frequently classified the responses of indigenous peoples around the globe to the invasion of Europeans as either â€œnativistâ€ or â€œaccommodationist.â€ How useful are these terms in describing and evaluating the strategies of Indian peoples in the post-contact period? Can you propose an alternative typology which more accurately characterizes the reactions of indigenous peoples to European invasion?
