Where did you actually go and how long did you stay there?
Did you go to any of the red-labeled zones of Mauritania? How long did you hang out there? The pics in your post are cool and all, but you provided zero useful info, choosing instead to belittle other people's legitimate concerns.
Obviously, if someone just passes through quickly through the safest zones, safety is not much of an issue. But risks add up - particularly if you hang out in some area a bit longer and the word spreads that you are around.
