I think to be honest, the terrorists are now winning. Or, at least, if we carry on like this, they may win. We cannot continue to exercise this hegemonic power over these regions of the Middle East. If we don’t change, we should try to find peaceful ways to solve this problem, especially since it is linked to our economy.

But you end up paying attention only when something tragic happens. This is why we are in this serious mess.
