May want to avoid Philippines.

"Abu Sayyaf is a small but brutal militant group known for beheading, kidnapping, bombing and extortion in the south of the mainly Catholic country...Security is precarious in the southern Philippines, despite a 2014 peace pact between the government and the largest Muslim rebel group that ended 45 years of conflict. Abu Sayyaf is also holding other foreigners, including one from the Netherlands, one from Japan, four Malaysians and 14 Indonesian tugboat crew."

Beav, do you realize that the Philippines consisted of over 7,000 islands spread over many hundreds of miles? The violence you describe is in a place far from where most tourists go.

Would you forego a vacation in Hawaii because certain parts of Chicago are dangerous?

Do you know who you're talking to? Beav would forego a trip to Hawaii because Park St. is dangerous. Unless that's Shorty, in which case, never mind.

If all the fear mongers stay home, hopefully that means shorter lines for the rest of us, and fewer ridiculous American tourists. Sounds like a win to me.
