Guam - A group of Japanese citizens are on island to determine the feelings of the residents when it comes to the U.S. Marines' relocation from Okinawa to Guam. Vice-Speaker B.J. Cruz says the group has interviewed several residents who were in favor of the buildup, and were surprised to hear that the senator was opposed.
"I told them that at least to their credit that they should be lauded for having the decency to come ask how we feel about this buildup, whereas the United States really hasn't, expect for the military wanting to know whether or not we're happy with what they are going to be doing with us," he said.
