Reading this mornings paper and thumbing through the Travel section I glanced through the list of countries the U.S. State Department issued travel warnings which recommend Americans avoid a certain country because of potential dangers. Most of the list (below) doesn’t surprise me but what makes me pause with several questions and one comment… I’m SO glad I don’t live in the Southwest any more… and my BIG question is – WE HAVE ‘OCCUPIED’ AND HAVE TROOPS DEPLOYED TO NEARLY EVERY OTHER COUNTRY ON THE LIST BUT WE DON’T TALK MEXICO!!! WHY? IS IT JUST TOO EMBARRASSING TO HAVE A NEIGHBORING COUNTRY – WITH MANY OF THEIR CITIZENS ILLEGALLY IN OUR COUNTRY – ON OUR LIST OF COUNTRIES THAT ARE OUT OF CONTROL?!!?
Central African Republic
Democratic people’s Republic of Korea
Democratic Republic of the Congo
Isarel, the West Bank and Gaza
Republic of South Sudan
