Third World Country?

Do the local native Mexcicans feel slighted when people on this forum, or any other forum for that matter, make the statement "travelling to a third world country such as Mexico"?

Just my opinion,

But anyone who lives in any country, Canada, US, Mexico or where ever who actually have to live in "third world conditions" wouldn't be reading this forum, would they?

Cheers,

Just to clarify, Mexico is a modern, industrialized nation on the same level as France, Spain, or any other European country. It is home to many multi-billion dollar corporations.

I have to believe it is some where in the middle but not on the level with France, Germany, etc. It has many large business enterprises but not many are actually headquartered in Mexico. Most are here to take advantage of low wages.
