Are you serious? Are you living under rock?
Sorry, but I'm afraid I don't get your point, sir. Language is rich and every word/phrase can be taken figuratively or literally. Do you really think that I'm surprise on how terrorists can be so cruel? It's a made-up speech to fit in situations like this.
I'm Spanish, I go to Barcelona several times every year to visit friends and family and I just pointed out that I'm really sad that this is the new norm, getting used that every certain weeks we'll suffer another terrorist attack
