The whole world turned its eyes to the hostage drama somewhere in the middle of the Sahara. Seeking recognition, a group of fringe terrorists did what terrorists usually do – took a group of foreign experts hostage. The political leaders in London, Oslo, Paris, Tokyo, and Washington got busy. The market got hectic, not knowing how things would end up. Some people died, and the media will speculate for a few days if this was avoidable. Terrorists got what they wanted: recognition. It is just about time to realize that some parts of the world are politically unstable, and there is not much we can do about it. If you want to go there to work, you better prepare your spouse that you might not come back alive. And, if some fanatic militants kill you, there is no news worth reporting.
