Guam - Emerging political trends for Guam, including the territory's political status, was the topic of a speech by University of Guam professor Ron McNinch today before the Rotary Club of Guam. McNinch spoke earlier this month at the United Nations on decolonization and Guam's political status.

He says he went as specialist on Guam's government, explaining, "The vast majority of people on Guam view themselves as American they don't want to be citizens of any other place we have done poll after poll on that if we are going to make a optimal future. With the U.S. we have to make an effort to do so."

McNinch says in his view Guam is full and has reached a saturation point in services.

He also spoke on Guam needs representation in the Senate and the possibility of keeping sex criminals from entering the island.
