In my book it is a case of "wrong place/wrong time" no matter where.

Not all South America, Uruguay, Chile and Argentina are very safe.

Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay are on the safer side

It seems the southern in SA, the safest.

I wouldn't really call Chicago's murder rate high internationally, I also think it's very overhyped in general.

Remember that alpha city stuff where they said it had the highest murder rate in that group? Although they're "alpha" cities and supposedly in better shape just have a look at some of the other cities on the official list. I count at least four elephants in the room on the 2010 ranking and three elephants on the 2012 [latest] one which was released early this year.

I beg to differ! It's dangerous for everyone that Kim Jong Un doesn't like! The problem is you can never be too sure until, sadly, it's a bit too late...

Well, when you're in a police state....as far as Spain, some of the most laid back people I've met in my travels, Italy as well.

After reading it I looked up how safe Singapore is from crime compared to the USA List of countries by intentional homicide rate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Wow what a difference! A murder rate of 0.3 compared to the 4.8 rate of the USA. And it made me see there are alot of countries out there that soooo much more dangerous than the USA.

So here it is.....the world's most dangerous (and safest) countries.

1. Honduras
2. El Salvador
3. Ivory Coast
4. Venezuela
5. Belize
6. Jamaica
7. Virgin Islands
8. Guatemala
9. Saint Kitts and Nevis
10. Zambia
11. Bahamas
12. Uganda
13. Malawi
14. Lesotho
15. Trinidad and Tobago
16. South Africa
17. Columbia
18. Congo
19. Central African Republic
20. Puerto Rico

1. Monaco
2. Palau
3. Hong Kong
4. Japan
5. Singapore
6. Iceland
7. French Polynesia
8. Brunei
9. Bahrain
10. Austria
11. Guam
12. Macau
13. Oman
14. Slovenia
15. Switzerland
16. United Arab Emirates
17. Czech Republic
18. Spain
19. Germany
20. Luxembourg
One caveat. Puerto Rico is not a nation.

I think the study is very subjective.

Hongkong and Japan are some of the safest countries but they have a big mafia who involves in organized crimes mostly targeting the rich businessmen.

Afghanistan and Iraq seem dangerous but that is because of some terrorist attack/war zone, the place could be dangerous to foreigners but it could be safe to locals (?)

South American countries are known for drug related crimes, if you are not involved on these activities can the place be considered safe?

US is generally safe by world standards but there are issues of shooting spree and still there is no gun control policy.

In the Philippines, you can be robbed in the street but there is high chance that they wont kill you. That exclude the far southern part where terrorists can be found.
