Most people are travel wimps.. No way to live if you ask me! If I had to relegate travel to green countries only I think i'd want to blow myself up.

I agree.

I can speak on behalf of my country, these maps look like they've been carelessly done.

Mutual feelings when correctly opportune at the right occasion. People are never supposed to feel excessively paranoid, very delusional, or worry too much when they are traveling.

Satirical humor there. Yeah, I want to travel far beyond only the green ones to not limit my options. I think up to yellow is very fine, even if reaching ambivalence. Orange is starting to code an actual danger, and I would have up to come up with a lot of reasons to warrant a visit. Red is maybe the only one I might really avoid at all costs with very rare outliers.

Taking the risk is a vital lesson when safe enough to have extra rich and varied travel memories.

Each map is specific enough to believe they are legitimate, and not recklessly complete.

Which exact cases are you not agreeing with? Explain.

Those maps have a to entertain value. Not always having to be extremely accurate. There is more than adequate accuracy to qualify those online Global maps, and include them.

Any in between countries people feeling extremely ambivalent mixed on? Let's start quantifying all of the countries each of us want to travel around according to these Travel Advisory Index Maps and then the opposite version. All of the other ones you feel are very discouraging not wanting to visit. Try to have very specific varying classification realms.

The yellow parts mainly. I just don't understand why it comes under 'reinforced alertness'. I would feel safer in these places than I do here in America. But the red parts I do agree with and the border of the whole country.

Unless diseases and road safety are considered in this map, I don't think reinforced alertness is needed.

Most of Songkhla and Satun are fine, should not be in the same group as Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat.

Bahrain isn't safe. There are conflicts between Shias and Sunnis and protests are common despite attempts at repression from the local monarchy.
Southeastern Turkey should be safer, nowhere near the level of more unstable countries
Western and Central Ukraine is as safe as Poland is except fear of uprisings given the deep recession the country is going in
What baffles is why you consider Hungary, Italy, France, Netherlands, Sweden, Norway and heck even Belgium to be more unsafe than other Western European countries. Especially Italy, who hasn't ever had a single Islamic terroristic attack

Ghana (from what I've read and been told about) is quite safe and I think it is safer than South Africa, in regards to crime.
And as for my country, I've said everything above, otherwise, you'd have to see it to believe it . (or read peoples accounts after visiting it).
