Life in Wonderland: wondering

I read an article, in the PDN, yesterday about the Independence Day celebration for Palau.  The President of Palau was on island for the local Palauan community's celebration.  He mentioned in the article that their sovereignty has allowed them the freedom "to adapt and enforce policies without a higher authority."  That sounds nice.  I wonder if the Palauan community, as well as the other peoples of other sovereign nations who have made Guam home, would support the Chamorro's quest for self determination.

Nations like Palau and the Philippines were once war prizes just like Guam, but now they are their own.  They reclaimed their sovereignty and dignity.  I wonder if they would stand in support of our decolonization if we asked it of them.
