Dear friends, I humbly ask for your prayers for Guam, because we currently find ourselves in a very dangerous situation which was not directly of our own choosing. Allow me to explain.

Most of you are no doubt already aware of the extremely volatile situation which currently exists between mainland China, Taiwan and the United States. The situation becomes more heated with each passing month as China and the USA continue to test and provoke each other in the South China Sea, and beyond.

What many mainland Americans may not know or understand, is how intricately involved the island of Guam — and a few other western Pacific islands — is in this situation, due to the presence of American military installations here. The US military in fact controls about one third of our island.

You see, we have been a very strategic US military asset ever since the United States liberated Guam from the Japanese during WW II in the 1940s. Some of you older folks may know that the island of Tinian — which is located a few hundred miles to the north of us, and in the same island chain — served as the base of operations when the Enola Gay and the Bockscar dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Wikipedia website notes the following:

“North Field was the departure point of the 509th Composite Group specialized Silverplate nuclear weapons delivery B-29 bombers Enola Gay and Bockscar, which respectively carried the two atomic bombs named Little Boy and Fat Man, that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.”

—– End Quote —–

So because of the heavy presence of the US military here — namely Andersen Air Force Base, navy ships, etc. — if a direct military confrontation occurs between China and the United States over the Taiwan issue in the near future, we on Guam will be caught right in the middle of it. This is a given.

In fact, according to the Washington Times news article I have linked below, China already has a missile which they refer to as their “Guam killer”. It may also interest you to know that the Chinese already use maps and mock-ups of the island of Guam in their military drills and strategies. This fact was reported by the American news media a number of months ago.

If you have any doubts regarding what I am saying here, please notice also that this news article clearly states that military assets on Guam will definitely be used, in the event that the United States has to defend Taiwan against Chinese aggression.

Of course, as I already said, we here on Guam already knew this, but now they are stating it publicly. In short, it is not a matter of IF, but rather of WHEN. China is definitely going to make a grab for Taiwan. Perhaps sooner than we think. Read the news. There is clear evidence that they are already gearing up for it.

Below is the link to the news article I was referring to. Please notice that it refers to Guam as a “major U.S. military hub”, just in case you think I am over exaggerating:

Simply put, we here on Guam already had a target on our backs. With these latest developments — as per the news article — we will now have an even bigger target on our backs, whether from China, Russia, North Korea or from all three of them.

As some of you may know, Kim Jong-un of North Korea has threatened us here on Guam a few times before, and during the latter half of December 2022, China had a battleship group in the vicinity of Guam. Following is a quote from the aforementioned Washington Times news article regarding this recent maritime incident:

——- Begin Quote ——-

The defense buildup on Guam comes as a Chinese aircraft carrier recently sailed near the U.S. island territory.

The Liaoning and several other warships conducted exercises near Guam that included an estimated 260 aircraft sorties in the region, according to defense sources. The warships were near Guam from Dec. 17 to Dec. 27 and were closely monitored by U.S. military assets in the region.

——- End Quote ——-

As I have mentioned before, the Russians, Chinese and North Koreans all know that they would need to knock out Guam first — as well as US military installations in Japan — in order to seriously hamper US defenses in the Western Pacific. With Guam out of the picture, China could more easily grab Taiwan. After all, Taiwan is located only about one hundred miles offshore from mainland China, while the US military has to traverse hundreds and thousands of miles of open ocean in order to present a viable defense against China. So strategically-speaking, who do you think has the upper hand in this current situation?

By the way, let me mention that the aforementioned news article has one glaring factual error in that it refers to the “South Pacific”. For the record, Guam, the rest of the Mariana Islands, and Micronesia — which includes Palau — are all located north of the equator. As such, we are actually in the Northwest Pacific, and not in the South Pacific. The South Pacific consists of Polynesia and other island groups.

To continue, the simple truth of the matter is that save for God’s divine protection, we here on Guam are already screwed. What I mean by this is that no matter how you look at it, this shooting war with China IS coming sooner or later, and Guam WILL be caught in the middle of it, whether we like it or not. That is why the US military is beefing up their defenses here.

You need to understand that the American government and the US military have the last word here on Guam. They let local politicians pass laws and play politics here to provide us with the illusion and semblance of being independent, but as we all know here, the reality of the situation is that we are just a US colony and a puppet state. They will use our island as they wish.

If you doubt that this is so, consider that other than having a non-voting delegate in the US Congress, we have no representatives in the House, no senators in the Senate, and we cannot vote for the US president and vice president. The US government also controls our immigration.

So again I ask you to please pray for us here on Guam.

At this point, let me switch gears and talk a little bit about Russia and Ukraine. As of late, I have been thinking that perhaps WW III has already begun. Most people just don’t recognize it as such yet. In recent months, a lot of news outlets and military folks have talked about the possibility of WW III occurring, but none of them have dared to say that we are already in it.

Let’s not forget that big global wars don’t just suddenly start overnight. They slowly build up over time and gather momentum from smaller incidents until everyone is involved. That is exactly what we have been seeing for the past ten months with regards to the war in Ukraine.

The fact of the matter is that with each passing month, the United States and NATO have become more involved, and more deeply entrenched, in Ukraine, even if it is by proxy via Ukrainian military forces.

Think about it. They started out very cautiously with regards to how much weaponry they were willing to provide to Ukraine, because they didn’t want to overly provoke the Russian bear. Why the caution? Because they didn’t want the war to spill over into other European nations.

But now look. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy of Ukraine has kept pressuring President Biden, the US Congress and NATO to give his country more and better weapons, to the point that just recently, he acquired the Patriot missile system.

So in my view, the level of support and military aid that the US and NATO are now providing to Ukraine already makes them active participants in the war against Russia. That is certainly how Vladimir Putin already views the situation.

Considering the repeated failures which the Russian army has endured over the past ten months, we can only wonder what Vladimir Putin will do next. Aside from trying to freeze the Ukrainians to death by knocking out their power infrastructure, will he seek to escalate the war even further? As a last desperate act, will he choose to resort to nuclear weapons? Time will tell. Let’s hope not, because once the bombs start flying, we are all done for. In other words, MAD: Mutually Assured Destruction.

So my point is this: Just because no one has officially declared that WW III has begun, does not necessarily mean that it has not already begun. My friends, Putin is now desperate for a victory. His political survival depends on it. We are at a very serious juncture. God have mercy on us all!
