well with a non-USA passport the US won't have to bail you out if something goes wrong.

Maybe Australia.

But the thing is that you can't get on a plane and decide to go back.

I don't find traveling to unstable or restricted areas too tantalizing, personally. There's a reason they're filled with strife and not so inviting to tourists. They probably do want your money, but they won't all be thinking about a fair form of trade to get it. I have however wanted to go to Japan for decades and haven't made it yet, but not because I was afraid in some way.

I have the guts to go anywhere. It is the other body parts that are coming up short and limiting my travel.

Yemen. Long ago for a school project I chose that country for a report, and became fascinated with it, its scenery and people. But it's just too dangerous for me to consider.

Why? Planes only fly one way from Ireland to Australia?
