Vietnam should have Creolized like how the Germanic Franks adopted Latin and became Romance French instead of the reverse of acceding to Chinese invader culture.

For Vietnamese it made sense to adopt impermanence as a state of existence.  They know the Chinese will come a every few years to burn down everything so they planned their harvests accordingly.  The Chams and Khmers made it a point with stone masonry that "we are here to stay" and stay they did not.

Viets were actually more Buddhistic than the Khmers.

Vietnam, holy warriors for Buddhism! The Hindu Khmers, the Muslim Chams, and Christian French who once took over Saigon should beware.
