NO GO CONTINENT! U.S. State Dept. Declares Most of Western Europe Unsafe


from The National Pulse:

An analysis of the U.S. State Department‘s comprehensive list of global travel advisories reveals that the U.S. government believes a significant portion of the world, including much of Europe, is unsafe for Americans. The advisories categorize over 200 countries into four risk levels, which range from Level 1 (“Exercise Normal Precautions”) to Level 4 (“Do Not Travel”). Americans are to “exercise increased caution” in previously safe countries such as the United Kingdom, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Spain.

Level 4 advisories caution against travel to countries deemed extremely hazardous for Americans due to terrorism, civil unrest, and crime. As of May 2024, the U.S. government advises against travel to the following countries:


Afghanistan: With severe threats of terrorism, kidnapping, and civil unrest, the U.S. Embassy in Kabul ceased operations in August 2021. The nation is now under Taliban control.
Belarus: The conflict in neighboring Ukraine and the presence of Russian military forces pose significant risks.
Burkina Faso: Areas in the East and Sahel regions face persistent terrorism and violent crime.
Central African Republic: Limited government control and widespread violent crime make travel particularly unsafe.
Haiti: Kidnappings and violent crime have led to the evacuation of non-emergency U.S. personnel from the Port-au-Prince embassy in July 2023. The main airport only recently resumed operations.
Israel and the West Bank: The ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict and terrorist activities pose high risks.
Myanmar: The 2021 military coup has led to ongoing armed conflict and civil unrest.
Russia: The invasion of Ukraine, along with reports of arbitrary detentions and harassment of U.S. citizens, makes travel highly dangerous.

Countries under Level 3 (Reconsider Travel) advisories are considered high-risk, where non-essential travel should be reconsidered. Key countries in this category include:

Mexico: States such as Colima, Guerrero, Michoacan, Sinaloa, Tamaulipas, and Zacatecas are particularly dangerous.
Lebanon: Conflicts and the presence of militant groups render certain regions unsafe.
Colombia: Violent crime and terrorist activities are common in some regions.
Sudan: Military conflicts have resulted in severe civil unrest and humanitarian crises.

Level 2 (Exercise Increased Caution) advisories indicate various risks where travelers should be particularly vigilant. Notable examples include France, Spain, Germany, the U.K., and the Netherlands, all of which are on the list because of terrorism concerns.

Western European nations like Germany and the U.K. have seen a significant influx of Muslim migrants in the last decade. Many of these migrants and their children hold extremist views and are sympathetic towards terrorism.
