Given the guy's backround and advertisement about being a sniper, I cannot help but think he's making a deliberate message against certain Muslims.
His plate does not say ISAWHAJ. Nor, SCOPE1. Nor, 1MOAGUN. Etc. Its present tense, and aimed at a certain Muslim group. My immediate take-away is the guy is both a racist and threatening--there is no other reason to say "I see you" than to send a shiver or intimidate. Add, in the sniper bumper sticker, and were I Muslim, I'd be livid.
Imagine if you saw a plate that said ICVICKY, with an FBI bumper sticker, and it turned out the registered owner was Lon Horiuchi?
There are plenty of freedom-minded people in this country who consider that a lot of the opposition in Iraq and Afghanistan were simply trying to chase out the American invaders. I can't say I disagree with that assessment overly much. It seems pretty plausible, especially given the actions of the American government in both countries before and during hostilities. Add in local propaganda, and I have little trouble believing a lot those people fighting our young men viewed our young countrymen as hostile occupiers.
With all that said, I have little but contempt for a government that "sells" us "special" plates so we can personalize.
