Threat to life in arabic countries

13
The Arab East, which Russians love as a place of rest, is causing them more and more concern as a result of recent events in the Middle East. And this is good, because, first of all, everyone must think about their own safety and the safety of their loved ones. However, practice shows that many Russians continue to visit some of the dangerous Arab countries as tourists, not listening to the recommendations of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.


Threat to life in arabic countries


As you know, the Arab countries are very heterogeneous in all respects, including in terms of terrorist danger. In this regard, the obvious need for a list of Arab countries, which would reflect the degree of terrorist threat in them.

    Though you don’t say, there are always those who want to go to these countries. Our people are not afraid of anything.

      Fans of such an extreme course will be found. I cannot understand those who drag their children with them, and then cry for help. Everyone is warned of danger. In the place of the authorities, I would forbid children to be taken to such countries.

        Do you know what all sorts of prohibitions lead to ?! The fact that our Crimea and hotels of the Krasnodar Territory raised prices for this season 2016 to new unprecedented price heights: according to my estimates, 10 days with moving accommodation and meals will cost from 150 and further non-stop.
        By the way, last year Goa cost us 135, this year the same 000 days 10. There isn’t a bit cheaper and much more expensive - the choice is wide. Only the beaches of the Indian Ocean can not be compared with the beaches of the Black Sea. I’ll just keep silent about the rest.

          Those who want to travel to such (dangerous for visiting) countries must pay insurance, including the costs of rescue and evacuation, and not transfer these costs to the budget (of taxpayers). This will be fair.

            Those wishing to travel

            And they are offered this option ?! No, it's just that the most inexpensive and popular countries were closed for the development of domestic tourism. Turkey, so shit with it, there is nothing worthy of attention besides "all inclusive", but there is nothing to replace the Egyptian Red Sea. And what kind of sea is there in Russia that you could swim in October-November and March-April-May? There is nothing to offer, but it's easy to prohibit, don't even guess here - they don't think about our safety, but about someone's wallets.

    It’s also dangerous to go to the mountains, but people go.
    And some die.
    It’s useful to think before you do anything ...

      In the mountains: skill, skill and a bit of luck. If an IED is blown up in an airplane, hotel or bus, this will not help.
      Invalid comparison. Mountains are an accurate calculation, and going to war is stupid.

      There is no disdain, but it is necessary to relate to each incident adequately. You are warned that today you can’t go to Turkey, and you still die - then your problems and so that your relatives do not demand compensation later.

    And to fly on air junk and with a crew recruited almost by announcement - is it not extreme? But they fly ... It feels like people live one day.

    They go to the cordon to reassure themselves and strengthen their pride in ambition ... the worse we are ... and I’ll look at my country, the majority succeeds only in their own garden. As they say ... who knows what, and lousy bathhouse ...
