From Snopes, Yes it's True!During a House Armed Services
Committee meeting held on 25 March 2010, Representative Hank Johnson, a Democrat
from Lithonia, Georgia, questioned Admiral Robert Willard, commander of the U.S.
Pacific Command, about a proposal to move 8,000 Marines from the Japanese island
of Okinawa to the U.S. Pacific island territory of Guam. Johnson:
Very small island, about twenty-four miles, if I recall, long, twenty-four miles
long, about seven miles wide at the least widest place on the island and about
twelve miles wide on the widest part of the island, and I don't know how
many square miles that is. Do you happen to know? Willard: I
don't have that figure with me, sir. I can certainly supply it to you if
you like. Johnson: Yeah, my fear is that the whole island will
become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize.
