Presuming that this proposed US-Japan option goes through, I for one would to like to see iff my old designs from the late 1970's + 1980's for USDOD-usable Tinian + Saipan Airfields, Harbors,+ related local Milfacs will closely match those selected by the USDOD under this schema.
I continue to believe that, besides GUAM-CNMI REUNIFICATION + other CNMI-SPECIFIC local improvements in infrastructure, a CONNECTING BRIDGE-LINK SHOULD ONE DAY BE BUILT/CONSTRUCTED ACROSS THE MANAGAHA CHANNEL BETWEEN SAIPAN AND TINIAN. This option is consistent with various proposals since the mid-late 1990's to build a MONORAIL SYSTEM(S) CONNECTING THE MAJOR ISLANDS OF THE MARIANAS + GUAM'S VILLAGES???
Again, while many mainstream Japanese desire to see ANY AND ALL US BASES LEAVE JAPAN + OKINAWA FOR GOOD, THE JAPANESE GOVT. IN TOKIU/TOKYO WANTS THE US TO STAY UNTIL SUCH TIME THAT JAPAN IS FORMALLY ALLOWED TO MIL REARM AND POSSESS ITS OWN STRATEGIC NUCLEAR ARSENAL,+ AS SUCH BE ABLE TO TAKE OVER STRATEGIC ANDOR SEPCIFIC, REGIONAL + JAPAN-SPECIFIC, DEFENSE RESPONSIBILITIES FROM THE USA.
CHINA recognizes the importance of the TAIWAN, NORTH KOREA,+ OKINAWA issues on its desires to become a US-style superpower and successor to the US, i.e. its ability ot project effective MILPOL POWER, FORCE,+ INFLUENCE OUTSIDE OF ITS TRADIONAL DOMAINS. It has prioritized the broad geographic area from the PHILIPPINES, TAIWAN, JAPAN-OKINAWA, SAKHALIN-SIBERIA-RUSS FAR EAST,+ GUAM-CNMI-WESTPAC AS THE PLA'S [PLAN] MOST IMPORTANT OR DECISIVE BATTLEFRONT IN ANY SINO-US MILITARY CONFLICT IN EAST ASIA. IMO a US-CHINA war over TAIWAN would only be the opening or preliminary move in a much larger Regional or Transregional War.
Guam like the USA is indeed at a DECISIVE POINT/CROSSROADS in its history, and hence WILL WITNESS BOTH GREAT OPPORTUNITY, AS WELL AS GREAT DANGER, AS TO ITS PEOPLE + INTERESTS.
