Ford Ranger & the US Army in Viet Nam

As seen on a recent drive into Hanoi. This is what I’d expect to see some yahoo in the US driving with a gun rack, a handgun in the glove compartment, and a MAGA bumper sticker. Here in Viet Nam, you can look at this nasty symbolism in one of two ways: 1) it’s offensive (the US military killed an estimated 3.8 million Vietnamese during the war, over half of whom were civilians, in addition to various war legacies); or 2) it’s a form of satire.

The owner probably thinks it’s “cool”, is an honorary US nationalist, a smart-ass, or all three. The merits of free speech aside, I know what I’d do if I had unhindered access to that truck for a few minutes and a can of white spray paint, if I’m in a good mood, or red, if I’m not. 😉
