I hope they’re picking the northern half. (Much of southern Vietnam predicted to be awash at high tide by 2050.)
Like getting priced out of the Bay Area, except for the whole North American continent.
The protests were against being forced to kill Vietnamese. That’s entirely consistent with deciding to retire there.
That article isn’t about teens who protested, it’s mostly about a teen who volunteered. And then followed that up with a career as a mercenary in Africa.
