>>33991 In a nutshell, the new order doesn't do that much more than the one it replaced.
I wouldn't say the order moves us closer to war.

It's all a lot of boasting and a ploy for attention which Trump loves getting... otherwise called: An ego trip.

"President Donald Trump signed a Presidential Executive Order amending Executive Order 13223, which may signal a new war for the United States. The original executive order 13223 was signed into law on September 14, 2001, by then-President Bush.."

I went to the page and read the executive amendment... do not understand an amendment that is and always has been in place.
In a nutshell, it extends the 'automatic re-enlistment' of a military person that has fulfilled his/her military requirement.
It has always been (with my understanding) the military can recall anyone out of retirement (up to the age of 35) with the stroke of a pen. Many of the military people had their enlistments (4 yrs) extended (automatically) during the Vietnam War. Many that had been discharged (honorably) were recalled to service... especially pilots and critical rates (radar, gun fire control, electronic techs.)
The amendment Trump signed (>>0) is some difficult lawyer gibberish which means about the same thing that's already in place.
It may, however, extend the authority to others (other than the Secretary of Defense) to sign the paper of an extended enlistment or recall... no biggie.
Maybe he just wants that authority to be delegated to more people in case of a nuclear bombing.
In the case of an all-out war... everyone goes back no matter who is doing the signatures.
