    I grew up in Newark.


    If you don't have a criminal record, your chances of being shot are minimal. over 95% of all non-justified shootings involve people with criminal records on people with criminal records.

    Well, in that case keep your fluffy arse in Tunisia with your Jihadists and I'll keep mine in Destin or Navarre, where I just feel overwhelmed by criminals.

    Weirdly Mexico is the favourite foreign destination for US tourists and it has 10 times the murder rate of Tunisia yet it doesn't seem to stop them returning in their millions year on year

    I've never been to Newark, but I've been to New Orleans, Chicago, D.C., etc., and you know as well as I do that there are sections of these cities that even the cops don't care to enter. So it really depends on where you're at. If he thinks he's safer with the Jihadists on Tunisian beaches, then he can go there. I'd rather take my chances with the sharks or Vibrio in Destin or Navarre or Gulf Shores and keep my money at home. Being the victim of an Islamist wielding a Kalashnikov never enters my calculus, and I'd rather not have to see gun-toting security in sight on my vacation.

    Again, it depends on where you're at. Most of the violence takes place along the border area and is related to the drug trade, while the tourists congregate in resort areas like Cancun and Cozumel. Personally, though, I have no desire to visit Mexico on vacation. About the only thing there I'd be interested in seeing are Mayan ruins. The resorts I can get here or in the Caribbean.

    Let me ask you something. If Tunisia is so safe, then why is Britain, along with most of the rest of the planet, flying its citizens out? And why did your government issue a travel advisory against "all travel to" or "all but essential travel to" particular areas of the country? Is it being irrational?

    I like the Caribbean too. The only issue I have is that the Islands are all a bit samey so I prefer the far east . Its a pity you guys aren't allowed to visit Cuba because thats a different experience. I visited the Mayan Ruins at Chichen Itza and they were awesome.

    There is no ban on travel to Tunisia and indeed many have stayed in the wake of attacks. I've visited many of the areas mentioned and had no problems whatsoever.

    There was a travel advice warning for the USA in the wake of the 9/11 attacks too so its not unusual for this sort of warning to be issued once the horse has bolted so to speak
