I've learned to look both directions when entering a roundabout in the US! :D
With humans continuing to encroach on the habitats of wildlife, animals need to learn to exploit and adapt to these new landscapes in order to survive. Chimpanzees, for example, alter their grouping and vocalizations in order to evade human detection whilst raiding croplands or entering areas potentially occupied by hunters.

It's really sad. That country needs some stability. It needs a peaceful regime in place that cares about and protects all its citizens. I'm afraid they're going to be in a state of perpetual warfare. The civilians are going to be the ones to suffer. The Taliban and ISIS will continue to destroy what fragile infrastructure they have. And if we, or NATO, or the UN do confront and chase them, they'll simply hang out in the tribal regions of Pakistan, waiting for opportunities to destabilize situations from their safe havens.
