Why not stick with the old plan to be prepared for any future increases in troop numbers on Guam?

Or is the new empire going to disband a few legions from its grossly oversized standing army? Nah. Americans today do not heed the sound of the Founding Fathers pounding on their coffin lids.

Another stupid move! We have already built a complete barracks on the island of Tinian and it was intended to put the dependents on Saipan. plus the island of Rota was to be used for bombing practices and yes, we already had a air field built - in fact we used to send Enola Gay to drop the first bomb to end WWII. All this was to be bult by Kaiser.

It's about time to move bases from Okinawa, Japan. Contracts have expired. Kindly rid Japan of expenses in funding management of bases in Okinawa. Japan have been in a very bad economy state. Let Uncle Sam worry about the fundings for bases in Guam. Japan have done their shares of helping US Military bases finances in Japan. Btw, why not move all those marines in Marianas Islands that are also good strategic positions in cases of atttacks by NK and Red China.

Guam IS in the Marianas. If you meant for them to pick another of the Marianas islands, then the cost would be even MORE because instead of adding to the infrastructure, they would have to create all of it from scratch.
