Fun fact: I saw a video of some American journalists who went to Somalia. Nothing happened to them but everyone there walks around with an AK-47 as protection and is almost illegal to walk down the street alone. It’s crazy! The only way to get to Somalia is to have a Somali citizen vouch for you, in these guys’ case, they had a Somali-American journalist friend help them get in.
Are there any dangerous countries you want to visit? Would you go if the country figured out its political issues?

Oh yeah, plenty of them. I won't go when there's a negative travel advisory, though, and I won't go if I feel it's risky, either.
There was a lot to see in Syria, but it's unclear how much remains. It was an up and coming destination until 2011.
I don’t know if you’d count Russia as a dangerous country. That’s one place I would definitely check out given the opportunity
