Does that make sense? I'm trying to say that Mexico has it better than Afghanistan/has seen less of the extent of violence that Afghanistan has seen. At first it sounded right but now I've read it so many times I can't tell if it's clear or if it might sound like I'm saying Mexico is worse off than Afghanistan.

Sorry, it's my bedtime and my brain is dead and rereading stuff too many times makes it look funny.

[ETA:] I mean does the "to a much lesser extent" make sense, or does the way I positioned it mean that Afghanistan experiences a lesser extent than Mexico?
