    But we will invade in no more than 6 years because we're gonna need to keep the infinity war going to justify the gross expansion of government power and the rise of fascism.
    Please enlighten me as to why we should pull our bases out of Guam.

    Guam is a sovereign country and we have no right to take portions of it for ourselves. Should Germany, or Mexico, or Canada be allowed bases on US soil?

    Yeah, we shouldn't hold those either. If they can't vote, they ain't part of the Republic.

    I respectfully disagree. America and Japan are close allies; our closest ally in East Asia. Japan wants us there; not just a dictator government but the people. If the people of Japan wanted us out, we'd leave with no hard feelings just like in the Philippines.

    Guam is part of America. I'm learning a lot if people honestly don't understand that US territories are just as much a part of America as Texas and Wisconsin. The people born there are native born American citizens. Their head of state is the president of the United States. Their national guard gets called up to serve in Afghanistan. When theres been a draft in the past they get drafted into the us military. Their court cases can be appealed to the us Supreme Court. If their government official get caught up in a corruption case, they're arrested by the FBI, prosecuted in federal court and go federal prison. They have to file their 1040s on April 15th. They have a congressman in Washington. They carry US passports. If you mail a letter to someone there, you use a regular .46 postage stamp and it'll be delivered by the local US post office. Their radio and tv stations call letters start with W or K. All but 13 of the 50 states started out as US territories. The only difference is the constitution gives certain duties and privileges to state governments and territories aren't states but neither is Washington, D.C.

    We still have no right, and it still ain't our business. America shouldn't pay for the defenses of others.

    If we own them, and they have no vote in our government, they're just serfs.

    Who says we own them? They are part of the American family. They have input into our government, just not the same status as a state government, a decision of the founding fathers. They have a congressman. They can join the US military and give orders to soldiers from New York if they outrank them. They can be appointed to the President's cabinet and be in line for presidential succession. I think they can run for President but I'm not 100% sure as there might be a recent state residency requirement first. They can and do get appointed as judges to the federal courts.

    The founding fathers thought the electoral college made of of state representation would be the best way to select the president so until we go with a direct popular vote in presidential elections they can only vote in the primaries. The founders gave each state 2 Us senators and they're not a state so just like Washington, D.C. They don't have senators in Washington. Their congressman cannot vote in the full house but can do anything any other congressman can do in committees. If someone from a territory moves to a states, no immigration and its no different than moving from Boston to Philadelphia; get a job, get you new Pennsylvania drivers license and register to vote in your new city.

    Re: War/military action against North Korea predictions

    My prediction?

    There is no way the North does anything.

    They are massively weaker in conventional weapons.

    And their nuclear threat is mostly hollow as they know if they nuke Seoul that America will nuke Pyongyang...and possibly a few other places.

    The North are broke, starving and militarily far weaker then the South.

    They are TOTALLY BLUFFING.


    Man, I feel sorry for their citizens.
