The American military needs to go home.

Just keep counting on both governements to pull their heads out and keep investing in this mess.

“Companies that were here mainly to avail themselves of the military build-up may have pulled out of Guam with the intent to return once they see that military construction is back on track,” he said.

Go for the gold!

"The American military needs to go home".

Not in this life time.

Guam is American.

I would like to know why a South Korean company was doing all this construction and not and American company.

Dear US, stop waiting on JP to decide. Move them or bring them home. Hearing about this news is getting annoying. What is the hold up? JP dont want the the bases, take them out.

Maybe the Korean company won the bid - they're closer to Guam than some company in CA or elsewhere in CONUS. Korea is an staunch ally, by the way. Anything sensitive will be built by US contractors.

"Real estate analyst Nicholas Captain"

I'll bet real estate analyst is a great job. And if Nicholas Captain ever joined the officer corp and became a captain, would he be Captain Captain?

They are building the barracks for the construction workers that were to build the infrastructure. Nothing classified in that so there's no worry about "Foreign Nationals" doing the work. As Ultradork pointed out, S.K. is a heck of a lot closer to Guam than "Cali", so their bids are almost ALWAYS going to beat an American company's bid.

Guam is American.

Ever since being won from Spain in a war like a trophy, yes.

Still, unlike Okinawa, I know of no significant demonstrations against the U.S presence in Guam. So better there than Okinawa.

The Yanks are coming home, so to speak. Just get out of Okinawa and many other areas in Japan and SK. Developers are just waiting to grab the land, so beware, otherwise the government will have a big sale for the property.
