Absolutely.
Theoretically, yes.

What you don't seem to understand, Dave, is that America is not England with a few changes. We have a system of Checks & Balances in place so that no particular branch is able to rule over/dominate the others. It is Congress's duty to decide whether or not we go to war. Period. End of sentence. It doesn't matter who's idea it is, who suggests it, or who pushes for it. If Congress says "War", then America's at war. If Congress says "Peace", then America's at peace.

Now, the President is the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, so if Congress says "War", he could theoretically say "No thanks" and not send troops, but that's never happened.
Seriously, before you start getting on your intellectual high-horse & try to tell Americans about what our country is/does/says/etc., perhaps you should read the Constitution. It's painfully clear from the comments you make that either you've never read it or never understood it.
Actually I don't know if you could call it was but back when Andrew Jackson was President he was ordered by congress to send troops to I believe Florida or some such after people there where breaking treatings with the Iroqui confederacies and killing them and so fourth. Jackson was an Avid Indian hater and refused. His detractors felt it was grounds for impeachment but nothing after came of it. (Some of my facts may be a bit off.)
