Guam: a U.S. colony



Guam has the largest percentage of people that serve in the U.S. military, but they can't even vote for president. That's messed up! Many people on Guam say their days as a U.S. territory need to end.

The US has several bases on Guam and is demanding even more island land for expansion of bases and also areas for war exercises which is helping to inflame anger toward the military.

Guam is called the 'tip of the spear' by the Pentagon as they use North Korea to justify their aggressive military encirclement of China and Russia in the region.

Guam would be a prime target in any war with China and Russia.  The people there are aware of that reality as well.
