- “The notice must be sent within 48 hours of US forces entering into hostilities….”
48 before? Or 48 hours after?
It’s important, General. We don’t know whether to have our troops march or take a couple days off.
Within doesn’t tell you before or after. It just tells you within. So bracketing within with of — “within 48 hours of” — doesn’t tell you what you need to know.
“Within — of”: Ready, aim, fire.
