Quote "that an even better approach might be to talk to the people you preceived as your enemies? To see whether an accommodation can be reached with them? To try to meet them halfway with their grievances? To stop doing the very things that are making them hostile to you in the first place?" Pretty hard to talk to anyone eg Iran, Syria etc who all they ever want to do is destroy you, indeed it is part of their ideology and politicle policies.
