I didn't say or imply anything of the sort. I was responding to solarz post where he(?) stated that "money talks, bullshit walks". There is no ambiguity in that statement. It is arrogant and offensive, it is wrong, and as an approach to negotiations it is unproductive and even dangerous.
You know what's arrogant and offensive? Invading another country on fabricated evidence.
Raising tariffs and suspending aid? Not so much.
