IntelCentre has issued a list of the ‘Top Most Dangerous Countries’. According to the list, Pakistan has emerged as the eighth most dangerous country in the world for 2015. The Middle East was at the top of the list with Iraq and Syria ranking number 1 and 2 respectively.
Intel centre is a company based in Washington that works for the intelligence agencies and prepares the Country Threat Index (CTI) that studies the volume of terrorist and rebel alerts, messaging traffic, videos, photos, incidents and the number of people killed and injured in a country over the past month. An algorithm is then applied on these statistics to assign a CTI to a country. Pakistan had a CTI of 122 with Afghanistan having a CTI of 186 bringing it in 5th in position. The risk will increase with the increase in the CTI number.
A low CTI number will show a lower level of activity over the preceding 30 days rather than a absence of risk, as in the case of the US, which had a low CTI in the lead-up to 9/11. The CTI is not the only means of measurement in a country, but is among the factors to be considered. Terrorist and rebel related activities are used to form the CTI. Other risk factors such as crime and political instability are absent.
The Top Ten countries making the list of the most dangerous countries have been formulated:
