>> Hi, YouTube. Good to have a conversation with you.
Here a Davos, a lot of people around, and I guess my answer to the
Davos question is this: Now, we've got to find a way to balance
ourselves in 2008, to let the vast majority of people move around the
world and trade and travel freely and at the same time protect them
against those extremists and militants who would do a lot of damage to
our system. It's about finding a place somewhere between
complacency and hysteria and having faith that if you use common sense
you can solve most of these problems without violence.
