    A Democratic member of the House Armed Services Committee compared Jewish Israeli settlers to termites on Monday while speaking at an event sponsored by an anti-Israel organization that supports boycotts of the Jewish state. Rep. Hank Johnson (D., Ga.) launched into a tirade against Israel and its policies toward the Palestinians, comparing Jewish people who live in disputed territories to termites that destroy homes. Johnson also compared Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, a remark that drew vocal agreement from those in the room. There has been a steady [stream], almost like termites can get...

    Ted Cruz (R-Texas)won the Guam caucus on Saturday, defeating his rivals Donald Trump, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. During the caucus hosted in Tumon, about 350 members selected the partys delegates to attend the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, this summer. The Republican Party of Guam will have nine delegates, as well as six alternatives. Guam is an American territory located in the northwestern Pacific Ocean. It has a population of more than 170,000 people. Like citizens of American Samoa, Guam citizens cannot vote in the general presidential election in November. On Wednesday, GOP front-runner...

    UPDATE: 7 p.m. EST -- Five superdelegates on the tiny North Mariana Islands in the Pacific Ocean decided Saturday to put their support behind Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton. Until Saturday only one of the super delegates has supported Clinton, with the rest undecided. Superdelegates are party officials who can back any candidate they wish. The small group of islands, not far from Guam, awarded four delegates to Clinton and two to Sen. Bernie Sanders in caucus results Saturday.

    The road to the White House doesn't get much longer than this. On Saturday, some 8,000 miles from the nation's capital, voters in the far-flung U.S. Pacific Ocean territories will get their say in this hotly-contested and often whacky presidential primary season. Republicans in Guam get the contests underway, with the Northern Mariana Islands' Democratic caucuses following a few hours later. GOP conventions in Wyoming and Washington, D.C., come later in the day, making for almost 27 hours of non-stop voting. Want to know more? You should. Where are the Northern Mariana Islands?

    Eight thousand miles from Washington D.C., Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is expected to sweep a Saturday vote that likely will not get much media attention: the caucus in Guam, a tiny unincorporated U.S. territory in the Pacific Ocean with nine delegates to offer to the GOP convention, where about 2,460 others will gather. With little fanfare in January, Cruz secured his first gubernatorial endorsement from Guam's Republican executive Eddie Calvo, whom Cruz sent a cake on his birthday. Calvo pledged to encourage his party to send all the island's delegates to Cleveland in July on Cruz's behalf, according to the...

    Since the beginning of his presidential campaign, Sen. Ted Cruz and his aides have touted the fact that they are running a national campaign, attempting to lock down the support of delegates in places far from the early voting states of Iowa and New Hampshire. On Thursday, some of that strategy paid off: Cruz got the endorsement of the governor of Guam, Eddie Calvo. The Texas Republican sent surrogates to the U.S. territories last year to cultivate relationships in the hopes of securing the support of delegates to the Republican National Convention in July. In a letter to Cruz, Calvo...

    Could Guam play a pivotal role in picking the eventual Republican nominee for president? That's what a staffer for Senator Ted Cruz believes.

Dennis Lennox says under Republican Party rules, a candidate must win a majority of delegates from at least eight states to be eligible for nomination. With as many as 17 candidates potentially dividing up those votes, the eight-state threshold may be harder to come by. However, GOP rules recognize Guam and the...

For months, the territories have been complaining that the law was implemented so poorly in their regions that it destabilized their insurance markets. Until now, the Department of Health and Human Services claimed its hands were tied. But last Wednesday, the department reversed course. The...

    Chris Anderson said he and his wife, Sue, haven't gotten the answers they deserve, but their plight has received attention from the United States Air Force top brass. "Guess who I just got off the line with? Gen. Mark Welsh, the chief of staff of the Air Force," said Anderson, adding that inquiries from Boise Weekly and the Associated Press are "definitely ruffling some feathers." It was the first sliver of hope that the Andersons have had since the death of their 19-year-old daughter, USAF Airman First Class Kelsey Anderson. She was found shot with her own service weapon while...

    The grieving parents of a 19-year-old Idaho woman who died serving her country thousands of miles from home say the U.S. Air Force won't give them information about the circumstances of her death. Airman 1st Class Kelsey Sue Anderson of Orofino died June 9, 2011, at Andersen Air Force Base on the island of Guam, a U.S. territory in the Pacific Ocean 3,300 miles west of Hawaii.

    The Chinese military has started operating within the USs exclusive economic zone, a move that could transform the dynamic between the dominant Pacific naval power and its main challenger. Admiral Samuel Locklear, commander of US forces in the Pacific, on Sunday confirmed the revelation from a Chinese military delegate at the Shangri-La Dialogue, a high-level defence forum in Singapore, that the Peoples Liberation Army navy had started reciprocating the US navys habit of sending ships and aircraft into the 200-nautical-mile zone off Chinas coast. Under international law, each country has the exclusive right to the economic resources inside a 200-nautical-mile...

    First the US fanfared the placement of two F-22 Raptors in the Osan airbase of South Korea. Then it demonstratively launched a B-2 stealth bomber on a training mission over a South Korean gunnery range. Then it deployed an anti-ballistic missile defense system to Guam and positioned two guided-missile destroyers in the waters near Korea. And now, courtesy of the Aviationist, we learn that the Pentagon has escalated once more in an ongoing cat and mouse game with North Korea, of who blinks first, and dispatched several B-1 ("Bone") Lancer strategic long-range bombers to Andersen Air Force Base in Guam....
