It ultimately lies in the responsibility of Congress and the President to make sure that the soldiers die for a justifiable cause. Still, the soldiers did make a vow to fufill thier duty, and to follow whatever the President decrees.

but according to United States laws, the president does not declare war, only congress has that power. Yet congress didn't even vote on it, it was Bush himself who started the war. And he started it based on lies and deception.

Which is my point. It's the responsibility of the President to not do what Bush did and launch a pre-emptive war on shaky pretenses without the consent of Congress.
