    So many of you will know that I already made a video on Guam ages ago! This is a bit of a "take 2" on that as it's a fascinating place and this time I went on location and learned about what has happened on the island after the North Korean missile threat. Most importantly, I filmed a behind the scenes video with Brian from Real Engineering and Joseph from Real Life Lore which you can watch here:

            I'll bet that Benjamin Cruz guy is neither American or a native. im pretty sure as my DNA says too that he is of Filipino descent who grew up or migrated to Guam. Does it matter? NO. But just wanna say it out there! Thanks.

                I didn't know people actually lived there, I thought it was only a small island covered in jungle and a military base 😂

                                              I had the privilege of being stationed in Guam for 8 years (US Navy) - 3 years in the 80's and 5 in the 90's. My youngest daughter was born there, so she is technically "Guamanian", something she is very proud of. We have many friends and extended family there. If you have the opportunity to go to Guam, GO! I love the island and the village fiestas are unequaled anywhere else! Chicken kelaguen, red rice, the best ribs, and finedine rule! Hafa Adai!

                                                I see there could be problems with a government telling a people what to do when it’s thousands of miles away (we had problems with Britain), but I think this problem could seriously be mitigated if our government stuck to its Libertarian founding principles and just enforced the the Constitution on the federal level. Guam (and all the other governmental bodies and US states) would be under US protection and follow the Constitution without being tied down by extreme government overreaching regulations.

                                                  1:20 Territory of Guam was ceded to the US along with Puerto Rico and the Philippines. Why did you leave out Cuba?

                                                    It looks like literally no place in Hawaii. Not that Hawaii is better or worse. It’s just geographically unrelated, nor Similar, nor reminiscent. Aside from maybe the coastline, sometimes?

                                                            A major issue expressed in this video about Guam was the “North Korea threat of attack.”
                                                            The governor bemoans the loss of tourism and economy on the island. 😭
                                                            Did they ever stop to consider that that threat is a direct response to the US threat and ongoing, provocative military encroachment to the sovereignty and existence of North Korea?
                                                            The answer to stability and peace in Guam, as with any other part of the world, is for the US to stop meddling in the internal affairs of other countries, close the over 100 military bases and installations around the world, and to bring the troops home. That’s how you demonstrate American patriotism and honour of the US Constitution!

I hear in Russia they say "don't be pussy". I don't see Putin as particularly tough. Riding a horse is not tough, it is in this day and age, animal abuse. The USA is absolutely at war against "the Russian Federation". Time to wake up and prepare people. first they attack the internet, Second they attack a sovereign nation and blame it on another country. Putin said he wants the USSR rebuilt.
