The point is if you make a conscious decision to leave the country you are assuming risks. Yes our forefathers took risks such as venturing into uncharted waters, meeting strange people not knowing if they would be friendly or hostile and so on. You avoid these risks by staying HOME! If you decide to go don't complain to me about what happened to you. I loved my cruise but was a little uneasy about being out of the country but if I found myself in unwanted trouble there who made the decision to go? I wasn't forced! so who should pay the price for this.
