Al Jazeera Report: The Americanisation of Guam

In this Al Jazeera report we find the struggle of the Chamorros, the indigenous peoples of the island of Guam as they witness the rapid erosion of their cultural identity. The video however does not really delve into the fact that the United States has turned Guam into their premiere military staging area against China, which means that the Chamorros are the unwitting front line in that future superpower struggle.
