Coffee and a Red Line…

coffeecupWhen you say, “Do not cross that line or you will feel repercussions!” That is called a “Red Line” and a Red Line is something that we, or at least I was raised to believe, that if you crossed said Red Line, then you got your nose punched and or a black eye. A Red Line is for situations that are extremely important. So important, you would die for those thoughts, actions and or feelings…

A Red Line is a warning…

Does not matter how big you are, whether you are a bully or not, how big your weapons are, you cross someones Red Line and you have crossed the Rubicon…

Watching the eastern news I realized that Russia has drawn the Red Line in the sand of Syria. What with the draw down of certain military functions to have been replaced with more and much more powerful weapons…

I have watched for months as Russia has made chess moves in Syria and this is what I talk about when I say, “Russia plays chess and America play checkers!”

To get some understanding about the difference; A Red Line to an American is a line to show seriousness, but that line is just a facade and can be moved as needed all over the place. America does it to suit the time and needs…

To a Russian a Red Line means; the bottom and final line. Pass the Red Line and you step over the Rubicon…
