What is giặc?
« on: March 19, 2018, 07:07:06 PM »
When I was young my father always call us 'giặc non' when we would destroy the house.  I was thinking it means young pirates.

Then I hear giặc Tàu in the news and 'đánh giặc'.  Would that mean fighting and killing barbarians?   

Gơgle translates 'giặc' as enemy.
