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

The Congress has the power to declare war while the President has the right to wage it. So all together you can't have war without them both agreeing on it.
