There is room for only one court jester here, and that person is me. AOC will have to wait her trn like everyone else.

Explain. Everyone agrees it would be a great thing to have Greenland. That's not to say we'll ever have it, but it's not crazy.

First, you don't need to buy a country to put a military base there. Secondly, there already is a military base there.

Yes, indeed. Thule Air Base.

Also, no need to build tourist traps. Greenland has vast mineral resources including uranium and rare earths plus an estimated 50 billion barrels of offshore oil and gas reserves.

For those interested in more than spouting random BS, here's a quick update.

Greenland is strategically important to the US. Check out a globe if you doubt this.

US would be wise to foster closer diplomatic relations.

Now we know the word that Trump doesn't like to hear, "absurd."

The Danes should be relieved that he's not visiting.

Sadly Trump has upset a good ally in terms of Denmark and it shoukd be noted that a higher percentage of Danes per capita were killed fighting in Afghanistan than from any other nation.

Greenland is not for sale, and the people of Greenland are happy with their own Parliament largely running their affairs as well as an historic close relationship with Denmark.

As for Trump he has spat dis dummy (pacifier) out.

Trump is even trying to have Russia readmitted to the G7, against the wishes of most European countries.

BNW, you do know that USA Today is part of the 95% of the U.S. media that hates Trump, right? However, why should Russia be ostracized? They have a large economy, and are a huge trading partner of especially Europe with Fossil Fuels, specifically Natural Gas and other petroleum based products.
