In the U.S., it is the Congress that is given the power to officially declare war. However, the President is still relatively free as Commander in Chief to order a variety of military activities without an official declaration of war from Congress. The current war in Iraq is an example. Also see this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Declaration_of_war_by_the_United_States
