just by calling somewhere "exotic" doesn't make it a nice safe place to visit
You might say I’m a living testament that such ordeal is possible.
the jungles of Vietnam are "exciting" but you probably wouldn't last 10 minutes inside one before you got bit by a venomous snake, eaten by a tiger or chewed up alive by insects the size of fists. surely an ideal place for a family of 4 to go visit.
Why would you think that jungles of Vietnam would be any different? Different strokes…….. as the Yankee saying goes, you lack the sense of adventure and that’s your problem. What scares the living daylights out of you, you tend to bash, once you show some respect I’m sure your family of 4 would be quiet safe and even the jungles of Vietnam would welcome you. Your second option is truly the American way, get a bigger gun next time you plan your trip abroad but bear in mind that while it satisfies the false sense of security it creates animosity towards the visitor, locals simply don’t appreciate it as much as you think.
Ooooooh.......I see. I'm American and made some comment about somewhere being "3rd world" and that makes me the a$$hole American now. Heaven forbid I have an opinion about somewhere and it automatically becomes an American exceptionalism issue.
Heaven forbid I would deny you your first amendment right, of course you’re entitled to your opinion and you’re free to voice it anytime you wish. Bear in mind that when an a$$hole makes its opinion known as you have so eloquently stated in a rude, obnoxious and loud manner at a social gathering more often than not it’s simply not appreciated by the rest of the participants at such an event even if they don’t come out and let you know right there and then.
You're completely out of line and simply looking for a fight.
I beg to differ; it is you that’s out of line, besides Those are the fighting words!.
