Under our system of government can the President just order military forces into action at his whim? Are there no requirements for Congress to approve such action other than fund it? Is there any precedent where the President has ordered military action but Congress has said no and not funded such action? What happens in such a situation legally and in reality?

I am trying to understand what recourse saner voices have to prevent this defeat for America the nation and its people. It is clear that the Decider and his "Rasputin" only care about the perceptions about them and not the country, so what can concerned citizens do?
