You say that like C isn't behind the vast majority of vulnerabilities and exploits, but it is.
If it's so difficult to write C well then surely some of the fault must be with the language.
"Programs must be written for programmers to read, and only incidentally for machines to execute." - Abelson and Sussman, Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs
C is the tail wagging the dog.
