“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…..
