Opinion – Guam vital in China threat

GUAM, the first US territory west of the International Date Line, proudly proclaims it’s where America’s day begins. It lies 3600km north of Townsville.
It’s the same distance west of Hawaii, America’s Pacific military hub.
Guam has become increasingly important since China commenced creating a series of heavily fortified military bases on disputed and man-made islands in the South China Sea.
As the US has historically done with Guam, these islands will allow China to extend its military influence well beyond its mainland borders.
