Uncle Sam wants you to stay away from these countries

The world can be a dangerous place. Depending on where you live, you're reminded of that every time you turn on the TV or read the news.

If you are citizen of the United States there's also another consistent reminder: State Department travel warnings.

According to the U.S. Passport and International Travel Office:

"We issue a Travel Warning when we want you to consider very carefully whether you should go to a country at all. Examples of reasons for issuing a Travel Warning might include unstable government, civil war, ongoing intense crime or violence, or frequent terrorist attacks. We want you to know the risks of traveling to these places and to strongly consider not going to them at all. Travel Warnings remain in place until the situation changes; some have been in effect for years."

We catalogued all the travel warnings now in effect and created the graphic below to show all the places where the US government doesn't want its citizens going (click the image to enlarge):

Let's also not forget that the United States can be a very dangerous place itself, and that U.S. foreign policy has helped turn some of these countries into the dangerous places they are now.

The following are the countries with warning issued by the U.S. State Department:

Security warning for some regions: Colombia and Mexico.

Security warning for entire country: Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Honduras, Djibouti,Venezuela, Iran, El Salvador, Burundi, Niger, Mozambique and Haiti.

Defer non-essential travel to some regions: Philippines, Kenya, Mali, Mauritania, Israel, West Bank, and Gaza.

Defer non-essential travel: Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Pakistan.

Avoid all travel to some regions: Ukraine, Nigeria, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sudan and Chad.

Avoid all travel to this country: Afghanistan, Lebanon, Iraq, South Sudan, Somalia, Lesotho, and North Korea.

Citizens remaining here depart immediately: Central African Republic, Libya, Syria, Eritrea, and Yemen.
