Iraq Iraq, officially the Republic of Iraq, is a country in Western Asia. more.

ah yes, this nation is really messed up
It doesn't matter whether you are George Bush, Pele or Chuck Norris, you are not safe in Iraq - anthonybecerra831

Currently the most dangerous... - zuni

Worst. Country. Ever.

True it sure is I would never visit here - trains45


lack of government makes Somalia a dangerous nation - anthonybecerra831

Another way to kill yourself is to travel to Somalia. You will be killed few days after you arrived.

War, famine, no government and poverty makes Somalia the most dangerous country. You will die if you go there. Trust me!

War and famine makes Somalia the most dangerous country. It's really bad there

Syria Syria, officially the Syrian Arab Republic, is a country in Western Asia. Syria has been involved in a civil war since 2011.

Who put Syria 4th? Should be first or second.If u r travelling around the world then don't come 2 Syria

There are super much murders there of the civil war there so possibly its actually the most dangerous country of all time and that's why I think it is a dangerous country the end

This list says: United States, Canada and Australia are more dangerous tan Irak, Syria and Somalia... :facepalm: - sam117


United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the more.

HOW ON EARTH IS THE USA THE MOST DANGEROUS PLACE TO LIVE IN! Don't come here saying the country is vulnerably to terrorist attacks... that's mainly the reason they started spying on the whole effing world. I would've accepted it being on the "Most Corrupt List." Yeah, the government is nosy, but don't go saying that it's not a safe place to live in... You might be anti-Yankee (I kind of am) but I have to face reality as well... and truth is that just like every country the USA has its dose of violence, but it's certainly NOT worse than Somalia or Venezuela, Mexico, Pakistan, India, and Brazil.

I'm half and half with this one I agree that America can be a dangerous place not cause of terrorist attacks cause of the people, America is a really unpredictable place there are way too many shootings in America and I think the government is being dum there allowing America

Just look at their foreign policy to know, the kind of people that inhabit this country, bullies, thugs and scum.

Yeah I agree. We've been pissing off so many countries- going into war with them and what not. Since we killed Osama bin Laden, we now have to except the fact that we are even more vulnerable for attack then 9/11. What if they get their revenge on us just like Japan on Pearl Harbor and 9/11 suicide plane crash into the twin towers. How do we know Iraq isn't planninm something right now. - lovergirl923

Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia. The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language.

It is currently ruled by the dictator Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who in turn inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung. more.

Why isn't this number 1.
You can be sent to prison for doing anything that no one would care about in other countries.

I have not been to north korea but I do know that if you do not follow the law there you will be executed

The reason the USA (though not the safest) in above this is beyond me in stupidness

If you go to North Korea, Kim Jung En will kill you...

Afghanistan Afghanistan, officially the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, is a landlocked country located within South Asia and Central Asia.

NOT a safe place to live


South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.

Why is South Korea in this list? I'm from the US and I lived in South Korea for 3 years. It's amazing and completely safe. Probably the safest country where you could walk on the streets with your cellphones

Good to live and it is getting stronger and stronger.

The most dangerous country of the world, they're still fighting to North Korea. You should refrain from visiting both country for safety reason!

Hey Koreans, you guys should face the reality! Stop making up your own story!


Desperation, death and destruction are synonymous with Sudan
also include terrorism - anthonybecerra831

No, it doesn't, the war in Sudan is over now it's one of the most peaceful countries in Africa. - Votebotingsucks

Mexico Mexico, officially the United Mexican States, is a federal republic located in North America. The country is located between the U.S. and Central America, and is known for its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico beaches and its diverse landscape of mountains, deserts, and jungles.

Mexico has a lot of violence with the drug related stuff going on in most parts of Mexico and has cost many lives as well as people getting afraid to go to the country because of it. Though people in the U. S need to stop thinking it's a terrible place to live in because it's awesome! :D

Just stay on the good side of Mexico, and not the seedy side. That's what my parents did. - Pegasister12

Mexico is the most violent country in the world, second is Brazil!

One reason why Trump builds a wall.

The Contenders

Brazil Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region.

After the World Cup, well, people have got their minds on. Great football, Great facilities, Great... Almost everything! - PizzaGuy

It is bounded on the south by 2,798 kilometers of coastline of Southern Africa stretching along the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans, on the north by the neighbouring countries of Namibia, Botswana more.

Ever votes for all these other countries, why South Africa 8th and USA 3rd? Abit stupid coming from the face USA has 3 out of 1000 people murdered and South Africa has 50 out of 1000 people murdered. In fact South Africa has higher then all the ones above it! If you read the Internet the top 3 most dangerous countries are...
1st. Venezuela
2nd. India
3rd. South Africa
It's is in crime ratings not countries in war with bombshells blowing up constantly

How the hell is India and South Africa more dangerous than South Sudan, Somalia, Congo, Syria and more? - Votebotingsucks

Colombia Colombia, officially the Republic of Colombia, is a country situated in the northwest of South America, bordered to the northwest by Panama; to the east by Venezuela and Brazil; to the south by Ecuador and Peru; and it shares maritime limits with Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Jamaica, Dominican Republic more.

Actually, I went to Colombia this year, and I saw it's an AMAZING place to live in. Really. I did some research and Colombia is actually leaving all the negative lists (danger and kidnapping) and is being welcomed by list such as greenest countries, most innovative cities 2012 (because of Medellin), CIVETS (a bit like the BRIC's),... And yeah, today's situation in Mexico does remind everyone of the old Colombian drug war, which haunted Colombia's image for years and still does, but less.

Colombia should be at number 1 when I went to Colombia only saw people doing drugs on the streets, I do not know how the guys in Colombia can live in this very violent country where if you live in some parts (like Medellin or Bogota ) would not live over 1 year.

The kids can not live in peace in a country where they are treated so badly.

Not only that also 90% of the murders is not resolved, then that means that a person can kill all the people he wants and never be arrested by the police mediocre and unreliable

They say that Medellin has ceased to be the most dangerous city in the world, but I think this city is going from bad to worse

Mexico Is The Worst, It's A Whole Differnt World... Colombia Used 2 Be Terrible, Gotten Better But Stll The Most Dangerous

Kidnapping is the main worry in Colombia - anthonybecerra831

Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat) are more.

Surprising it's on the bottom it should be first

It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi.

Screw the Taj Mahal, India deserves to be extinct. - Madcritic

India is what people think Pakistan is when in reality Pakistan is in the shadow of misconception and India is all-praise. India has a mostly glamorous world view but reality is seen on-ground. India is not safe at all.

You never know the food you're eating in India...

And avoiding to come in France because of attacks is playing the game of the terrorists, it's what they want, and after Tunisia, Mali, Pakistan, Ivory coast, Egypt, England, Spain, France, Belgium... Who's next?
France is just a peaceful country despite this fact which can happen anywhere else, but France is fighting against to protect any other country against terrorism.
