East of the Philippines and Indonesia, but west of West Point, Guam, otherwise known as Andersen, is the USA’s main military base in the western Pacific. It was used by the B-52s in the war in Vietnam and is the resting-place in the off-season for a type of shark known as the nuclear attack submarine. Current US plans include the removal thither of several thousand marines, with their families, from Okinawa in Japan, and a series of war-games in the surrounding seas, so that they will be ready should war break out with China. Guam is also inhabited by something called “people”, but as these are frankly irrelevant to life on the island beyond Andersen Air Force Base, there seems little point in dwelling on them here.
