In Africa this type of thing isn't that uncommon and happens all over. Wasn't it just last year they tried to kill Martains? Plus despite what the FIFA might be trying to say S. Africa isn't a wonderful place. It has nice cities and is amazing visually, but it has great poverty which is going to lead to lots of people getting robbed. I promise you at LEAST 10 people will be killd due to robberies during the WC. On top of this it is far easier to cross borders and travel the nation in Africa compared to the US and a radical group would have no problem getting into S. Africa. Africa is a amazing place but the truth is that large parts of it are still in chaos. So really it has everything to do with it.
In the world today no one wants to step on anyones toes in the order to remain PC, but I don't care its the truth.
I admit your right on that-- South Africa has beautiful cities but the criminality rate is still very high.. Their will be victims no doubt..
So will their be in Brazill, and any other none first world country with a fair amount of poverty like the mentioned..
Still, the situation is much much better in South Africa, and millions are been spent on security.. Yes before entering the stadiums and at bars and restaurants their will be robberies, but I guarantee you no situation like this will be repeated..
I know the crime over there is high, but have you read anythin about terrorist groups like the ones in Angola? hope not..
Had a good friend from S.A, Johansburg. He was my roomate, he said they stole in his house 5 times, and thehy pointed a gun at him and his family twice, he has dogs, a security guard and his paps has a 9 ml..
Crime in africa really isnt by expertise but I just wanted to point out that just because in angola theres a terrorist attack like this, there is no reason to expect that in South Africa theyre will be one..though you do bring up some good points
