Guam - Committee Chair on the Guam Military Buildup Senator Judi Guthertz has fired off a letter to Assistant Secretary of the Navy Jacklynne Pfannensteil, requesting clarification on the military's plans for a missile defense system on Guam. The Record of Decision didn't provide a definitive decision on whether the system would be placed here but rather that Guam was a preferred site.
With the threat from North Korea and the billions of dollars of investment to transform Guam into the "tip of the spear", she questions why a decision on the defense system would be placed on hold. Guthertz said, "If the buildup is to proceed we in Guam should be entitled to the protections from enemy missile attacks just like any other American community. After all, we are Americans, too."
