asked the question, "Where would you be the safest if World War III broke out tomorrow?"
The answers arrived in a post titled "10 Best Places to Live for Avoiding World Conflict
." Irrelevant as it may seem to you, the claws of conflict affect a revolving roster of nations. The knowledge of where not to go because of conflict, or better yet, where to go to avoid it, can be useful if you're planning to live, or even just spend some time, abroad. According to this article, countries that make the safety cut are: Switzerland
, Costa Rica
, Papua New Guinea
, and New Zealand
. Most of these choices make sense to me, based on what I know, but the undeniably gorgeous Seychelles
seems like a somewhat uncertain choice. News stories covering the Somali pirates swarming the Seychelles area are prevalent. To be fair, I'm not convinced Somali pirates are a current threat for World War III. What are your thoughts? Where would you move in order to be as far removed from world conflict as possible?
