"Guam is no longer the trailer park of the Pacific"

Well, that's good to know. Because I was getting ready to send them a supply of "You know you're a redneck if...." books, DVDs, and posters. But apparently Rumsfeld is set--in that cute, impish way of his--on escalating U.S. military presence in Guam (since the Philippines told us to "talk to the hand" 10 years ago). Ostensibly this is to facilitate shows of force in the Pacific (read: China) in the years to come. This article outlines the details, which are apparently being undertaken on the DL. Except for the whole international media attention thing, that is.

I'm torn--as most of you know the DoD and the military in general hold a special place in my heart, but I'm also inherently suspicious of ANYTHING this administration does.
