Most Dangerous Countries In the World

The Top TenXW

1Iraq

It is so dangerous because people living there risk their lives and their average life spam is about 30-40 and they lack access to clean water food and other kinds of materials to survive. They also get killed in different kind of reasons that don't actually have to be killed

Uh, **cough cough** third world country. And how in the world, is the U.S. most dangerous? I mean, our government might not be best as of now, but were not so incosiderate that we just would nuke a country. I, being a 13 year old male American Minor, know were not some dirty pigs that take everything and do bad stuff. Way to be positive, people.

First Iraq was safe and calm but when america army attack it, Iraq became unsecure and terrible, I think sources of all insecurity in the world are america and Israel.

Please think about this issue very carefully that, in each country there is insecurity and war america paricipate it.

U stupid Americans u turned my beloved country in to a war zone u just had to kill Saddam he was everything to Iraq

2Somalia

Somalia has no government. Plus there is a lot of terrorism. There's a civil war going on warlords, pirates, famine, and drought. Somalia is hell on Earth.

I'm scared to go there but its started to rebuild

There is no law in Somalia. Pirates on the coast, corrupt so-called government and civil war on the inside. It a country full of bandits and people ready to shoot you and steal everything you have. Let's not forget the terrorist attacks.

I hope Africa gets better

3North Korea

It's dangerous because the dictatorship is SO MUCH... like there's no freedom of speech and internet is forbidden. Only the high rank officials can use internet to cover them up. THEY ARE FULL OF LIES! No North Korean people have access to the Internet because the government is concerned that people would see things that would make them feel unfairly critical toward the West, and the government would like to protect the West's reputation by preventing the people from going on the Internet. LIKE! And there are lots and lots and lots and lots of propaganda. They are war freaks in short.

North Korea is way too corrupted. North Koreans are brainwashed, being told that their "eternal leader" is a god, and that Kim Jong Un controls the weather. People are starving, with some regions turning to cannibalism, and millions dying in a 1994-1998 famine. There's no freedom at all, and saying a bad word about the leader would get you killed. They threaten the US and South Korea, and have nuclear bombs. The Internet is completely banned. Law-breakers, including Internet users, Christians, people trying to escape, and rebels are put into prison camps which has conditions that you can compare to a Nazi concentration camp. Children and infants are killed, prisoners are brutally beat up, and people eating snakes to survive. Some even say that biological weapons are tested on them. There needs to be some changes. - ethanmeinster

I was actually surprised at how easy it is to escape North Korea, it's as simple as boarding a flight to Beijing, a non hostile relationship with a communist country, and from there going to another place. The problem is that the people are so brainwashed that they wouldn't know to do that, or that they're living deplorably. The country shouldn't even be called North Korea. South Korea shouldn't be called that either, the south is the only REAL Korea. The North shouldn't even be recognized as a country, it's a giant prison. And Shorty needs a bullet through his forehead. Can you get on that, Rodman? Make yourself useful for a change. -

No matter what you do here, it's illegal. Taking photos equals month in prison, Watching South Korean television equals year in prison, and leaving North Korea equals death. I bet you are hated just for being a human being. You think this is unfair? Good! Thank the dictator who runs this country, Kim Jong Un. While his population is starving to death by the second, he just shrugs it off and stuffs his mouth with egg rolls and bamboo ( yeah, I said that).

4Afghanistan

For my opinion Afghanistan is most most dangerous country in the world, United States of america is no way near as dangerous as Afghanistan, but some places in the United States are dangerous like the bronx or detroit but any where in Afghanistan is more dangerous than anywhere in United States of america

my one friend who used to live there said half her school got blown up - cowstar

Land mines, malaria, lack of government, lack of resources, extreme poverty, famished, malnutrition, illnesses, drugs and religous radicals known as the Taliban make this country by far the worst place on Earth to live. Don't underestimate any of those I've listed, research will show you each one is the worst in it's class. Afghanistan leads the world in malaria cases, active land mines, and poverty. Their number one crop is opium! Americans will pay out a federal salary to local nationals to earn hard cheddar by performing hard labor, digging ditches in 120+summers all day should be worth more than a handsome $7! That's right, apparently making 7 US dollars is well worth a hard days sun!

Afghanistan is the best country

5Pakistan

Pakistan is extremely beautiful place, especially northern areas are just like Switzerland. Pakistan is very famous for Basmati Rice, Mangoes, Cotton, Sugar and other minerals.

Food and Clothing is so famous around the world that you cannot imagine. Housing and life style is great no comparison.

Yeah, you are right. It has each and everything present in this world (can be every type of food, material, metals, gas, petrol, water, river, deserts, valleys and much more) but the corruption, fighting, less interest in education, dirt everywhere, no cleanness, no helping, competition and dying for money are the reasons which destroys Pakistan.

Pakistan is not dangerous, Actually dangerous is America who always want to broke Pakistan styles and Pakistani culture... otherwise Pakistan is not bad... the bad some peoples here who are not Pakistani but they come to Pakistan from another countries like Afghanistan, India, Bangladesh, etc

It's the worst country and the people are equally worst, who wrote this article seems a big Fan of terrorism and inequality, most of the attackers, Hijackers, terrorists, rebellion comes from this country itself, they don't understand the loving words, if you kicks them out they will feel good

6United States

The Usa is getting more dangerous, and all the people who are saying that USA is not dangerous is because they live in USA and don't want to admit that it is one of the most dangerous country in the world, I mean world wide, you see american news all the time that are about murders or robberies or prison breaks, and I live in the UK. Its not that the people are crazy its just over populated like brazil and china, and Iraq is dangerous because of there history with bad presidents like salaam which made them violent. That's all I have to say.

The United States lately is not safe. Many tragides happening, and it sure isn't safe for kids walking alone. For example look at the Boston Marathon many people got hurt and some died! I think it just isn't safe walking around in a big event world wide.

You know how many countries hate us and the fact we still own China that 1 trillion and the crime is no joke 56000 people die in New York City every year and that's just 1 city there's much more Obama almost went to war with Syria and they have nukes imagine nuclear war it would be terrible that will be so don't think all the time oh America the home of the free it's the home of crime and that crime is influenced to people every day crime is growing and every day I watch the news after work and I hear another another bank robbery another person killed another something that's illegal so USA plus I have to make sure my boy is safe to the walk home intact I even have to pick him up from school now because of sexual assault now a days and don't even about the cancer situation 1 person die from it every day here and drug dealers are crazy in Houston there's thousands of gangsters in the New York the Bronx and lots of asylums in California deserts it's crazy here USA should be the 1# most ...more

Are you crazy I understand New York but California that's crazy

7Syria

The regime is shelling cities using mortars, bombs, tanks, helicopters and jet fighters! Scud missiles are used too to hit civilians, needless to remind you of the chemical weapons which have been used too! The regime is fighting rebels inside and outside cities.. No where to run! Now what do you think? What country is the most dangerous in the world?

Syria is a dangerous place. Isis is there. Isis is a large group of terrible people. They brainwash children so that they can join Isis. This group holds innocent people hostage. Sometimes they kill those people! So I would like to say that Syria is very dangerous.

Living in Syria, I can assure you that after an official count of 400,000 deaths in the past three years along with all kinds of tragic living circumstance where one is unsure whether he'll survive the day or not... We definitely are the most dangerous place in the world.
What a great touristic ad, isn't it?

Syria was such a beautiful place, until 2011 :( - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

8Israel

The country is cursed for all people in the world

Israel is most dangerous country in the world

Yes it is dangerous but you know why these countries are dangerous because we all can't accept each other's differences so when someone is different doesn't mean they are evil or bad we are all God's (Allah's) Children whether you believe in him or not

This is the exact place where Palestine should be, who ever says Palestine Isn't a country don't listen to them, just because they took most of Palestine's territories does not mean it's not a country, I hate Israel more than North Korea either Israel is also dangerous and it deserves it

9South Africa

I am South African and I find this very disrespectful. Every country has it's crime, we have a safe life in South Africa you just need to be aware of your surrounding I can walk in the streets at any time of the night or day and I have not once had problems so before you judge a country by its cover get your facts right...

I don't believe that South Africa is in this list. South Africa is not that bad, there are bad countries out there.

Despite our crime statistics being horribly under-reported, we are indeed a very dangerous country based purely on the official statistics published. I believe it shout be on this list

South Africa is a great place to live, sure we have crime but like most countries you need to be aware of your surroundings.

10Mexico

I disagree with the fact that Mexico is in 7th. They should be in 3rd due to the deaths caused by the cartels and Mexico is way more dangerous than the usa. Does USA have power gangs or a powerful military. No they don't. Just because Mexico lost in the Mexican American war doesn't mean they are more powerful. Mexico is a fierce country. The USA is no more dangerous than a little doll.

WHY IS AMERICA IN THE TOP 5? PEOPLE... We need to put this list in a per-capita.
America is not this dangerous!
We are not in the TOP 10!

Where have you been? I have lived in America my entire life, the crime rate has gone up tremendously since World War Two... American's have lost there Patriotism... - LostDream258

I'd love to travel to Mexico but the thought of it scares the crap out of me, I was reading in the News Paper before, some cartel kidnapped An American man who was just on vacation down there with his wife for a few months. They tortured him, beat him, starved him and demanded his wife to pay a large amount of money if she was to ever see him alive again (I can't remember how much It was, but it was a lot of money) they kept him hostage for 4 months I think. He was only released once his wife had payed all the cash. He is Ok now. But No thank you I wont be travelling there any time soon.

In Mexico Is The Place Where Gangs Come From The Shoot a lot Of Times.

11India

If the Best country in the world that is India.. Because the Indians are very humbles and good human beings.. one of the best country in this world

India is a beautiful country. Here all the religions people are living with care and love.

India is good. I am from Kabul, Afghanistan and I have been to Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Pune. and found Mumbai the dirtiest and stinkiest city. it is very crowded and over populated and people of India have a very bad habit of pissing on the street and they are very stinky people all Mumbai stinks like urine and other issue is pick pockets. you will have to watch your wallet every time you get out of your room.

India is a dangerous country for Muslims

12Russia

I have many Russian friends but even they can prove that Russia is one of the most dangerous countries in the whole world. Even their presidents are criminals - Magnolia

Russia like the US is dangerous. Russia under Putin is trying to restore their empire ( the bear was never dead, just hibernating ). The US is trying to desperately hold on to its empire. The current poisonous relationship between these two nations will see a miscalculation and when it's over, the remaining nations... England, China, and others may have to pick up the pieces. On the other hand, nobody in the world is safe if both the US and Russia remain hell bent in their current mindset.

The country is full in the manufacturing of dangerous nuclear bombs

Let's be honest most presidents of big countries are criminals

13Venezuela

Be careful of fighting and shooting!

Venezuela is actually really dangerous

No Colombia does tent have so many killings a day and we are taking care of our corruption problems and you just want to look bad anyway I think that we are not ranked this high

Why is this on the list? You just have to use common sense!

There is not even 100 killings a week.

15Honduras

How is Honduras number 15? Honduras highest killing rate for the year 2014. The rate is 80.57! That's a high amount. I would stay far away from the Honduras to keep my life safe!

Honduras its Honduras DUH you can never live there and if you go there you'll never come out alive

Honduras is extremely dangerous, with the corrupt government, drug lords, and gangs. Its had the highest homicide rate in the world for at least the last 7 years.

I agree stay away!

16Brazil

If you travel to Brazil you are likely to get mugged, because anyone who looks like a tourist is a target. Desperate poverty lies alongside great wealth in this country. Economic growth has widened the gap between rich and poor and made crime rates soar. Street crime is rampant in parts of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, and it is common for tourists to have their lives threatened for their valuables.

It's like any other latin American country, if you don't want trouble, stay away from the shanty towns and poor areas. The violence here is 100% related to the social gap and its consequences.

Speaking foreign languages in poor areas draws unwanted attention, because people will always think you're from a rich developed nation, even when you're not.

If you don't speak a word of portuguese, you do better travel with a local friend, it's really easy to make Brazilian friends in travel social networks like CouchSurfing.

Brazil has the big crime in the world, we have higher on list this is no united state. Brasil people, is the favelas, the poor, lots weapon

Brazil should be no. 1 it is a very violent country it has an average of 2,0014 homicides everyday

Poor Ukraine it's getting horrible

Ukraine has started becoming terrible with what they did to the Malaysian flight.
The skinheads there do not let blacks live and do lots of stuff like tearing your body and getting your organs out and kill you. Plus you have also got Russia as a neighbouring country and it always keeps having wars

Supid Ukraineian rebels are fighting the government now it's about Syrian Rebels Russia and France are attacking them

18Ethiopia

Why is this even on the list? It's one of the best countries ever.

Don't go here you'll get kidnaped at night

Why Ethiopia is in the list. I ws there and I fill so safe even in Addis Abeba...

19São Tomé and Príncipe

The most strange country in the world! we don't know almost anything for that tropical island-country! but I think that it is the most hot country in the world because it is in the place where equator and primary cache get together each other!

20Rwanda

Compare Rwanda to its neighbor, Burundi, please! Burundi has much more corruption and death and etc. Rwanda is an average country. - Joansb

Rwanda is a bad country in your opinion but for the people who love it and were born in it like it and appriciate the country maybe offended
