Concern over the US military's Guam build up


By ABC Radio Australia

A retired US army Colonel and diplomat has told Guam residents she's concerned about the planned American military buildup.
She says the movement of 8,000 marines, and 34,000 support staff and dependents will increase the population by 25 percent, creating a population explosion the island can't accommodate.
