I'm curious as to how safe different countries are. Let me explain, I'm interested in how terrorism defence and the police forces in your countries work. Do you think they are doing a good job keeping you and your loved ones safe?
i have not heard of nay violence in the UK and i guess the way the government runs your place is good that no civilian would try to defy the government,.. anyway i have a friend out there though there was a time last year or few years back when there was riot everywhere..I have to say that here in the UK i feel pretty safe, I think the government and authorities, while not doing a great job with a lot of things, I think defence is where they are getting it right. I don't know anybody who's living in fear put it that way.
I've travelled quite a bit as well and to be honest, while some places are a little more dangerous than others, I have to say I've never really felt at threat in any country.
No matter what security measures are put in place, I don't think any country can be 100% secure against a terrorist attack, some are at more risk than others obviously.
As an Old Testament prophet said to the citizens of a city that was about to be attacked, 'Don't worry about the wall around the whole city; each of you just needs to fortify his own family's little section of the wall.'Here in the southern US, we're pretty safe from each other, what with the "stand your ground laws" we have in place. LOL As far as terrorism, no I don't think we're very safe at all. We have hoards of people streaming across our borders from central and south America, with no documentation and little or no restrictions. It is always a possibility that terrorists are among them Our government is doing nothing to stop it. I think we've been lulled into a false sense of security.
Worrying about it won't help.I'm way out in the country in the south, US. Our police force is becoming tyrannical. And honestly, we have no idea how safe we are. They tell us only what they want us to know. If there is a real threat, we won't find out until its too late.
One of the arguments against gun-law like that is "If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns." I don't have a gun, and--if I were given one--the person in most danger would be me (no suicide-risk, but more just my clutziness). But I do think that guns should come with manditory training.I live in one of the European countries and I feel safe here compared to my home country. For one, ordinary citizens here are not allowed to carry guns, so it is a bit comforting knowing that you will not be shoot while walking in the streets. There's a lot of police visibility here, anywhere you go, you can see police standing anywhere and they really respond fast.
With regards to terrorism, I am quite confident that they can handle that well.
