You know it’s bad when a warzone is safer…..

Venezuela, More Deadly Than Iraq, Wonders Why
H/T to (blah!) The New York Times

Preview:
“CARACAS, Venezuela — Some here joke that they might be safer if they lived in Baghdad. The numbers bear them out. In Iraq, a country with about the same population as Venezuela, there were 4,644 civilian deaths from violence in 2009, according to Iraq Body Count; in Venezuela that year, the number of murders climbed above 16,000. ”

Wow, Venezuela has a worse murder rate than Mexico, and Mexico is BAD right now. You’d actually be much safer vacationing in Baghdad or Kabul than Juarez or Caracas…..
