Escalate the US military DEFCON track by up to 2 steps. You may then deflate another US DEFCON track by the same number of steps.
1. If you escalate the Military track by 2 steps, can you then deflate another track by 1? (In other words, is the "up to" implied in the deflate part of the card?)
2. If you are start at the lower DEFCON 1 level, so you have only 1 level to go until maximum escalation, can you deflate another track by 2?
Pretty sure that it's No and No, but would like to be sure.
For me it is clearly "No" and "No".
The deflate part says "the same number of steps" referencing the "up to 2 steps" part.
So "up to 2 steps" is only valid for the escalate part.
