Yes, that much I agree. Especially when the US and CCP from China are looming over our sea. This is why so many people here are worried about the US election.
Your perspective is interesting because a lot of Vietnamese-Americans here are voting for Trump because they think he's "strong" on China and will stop China from bullying Southeast Asia. So many Viet-American Biden supporters are trying to argue how that's not the case, but then we get yelled at, called traitors (women get called "traitor bitch!"), and being told to obey or go China/Vietnam and be "communists" there. Those Trump supporters tend to be older or have little education.
