"If Belgium is a failed state, the U.S. would be Afghanistan"

29/11/15 - Speaking in the VRT's Sunday's TV show "De Zevende Dag", the former American ambassador to Belgium, Howard Gutman, discussed the issue about whether or not Belgium could be called "a failed state" as some foreign media are doing. "Belgium is the 14th safest country in the world. If it would be a failed state, then the U.S. would be Afghanistan", Gutman said. Still, it seems Belgium's image abroad has been seriously dented in the aftermath of the Paris terror attacks: "The only failure Belgium has had, is that it let others control the message."
