Not that I recall the US giving much of a hoot about Nazi Germany in early 1940.

Anyway, back to the present, where defensive alliances have been formed. And Trump has so far managed to drive a massive wedge through one of the most successful alliances ever - this latest foreign policy misfire just adding to it.

Trump Wants to Know If He Can Buy Greenland


It's hysterically funny how all these Trumpies suddenly have a wet dream for Greenland.

It's like they never gave it a thought at all, for their entire lives, and suddenly it's one of the most important things to be done right now.

These people are like marionette puppets, all leaping on cue.

It's really the left that is talking about this incessantly. It first broke as a leak in by one of the "news"papers or cable "news" channels. Then you had leftists snickering at the idea everywhere. We just pop in once and while and saying while it's far fetched, it's good for the country. But when you're so blinded by TDS, you only have tunnel vision.

Nah, the Trumpies are doing a little more than just popping in once in a while. One of your cohorts is even savaging Denmark, claiming it sided with Hitler during WWII. Talk about deranged.

How dare Trump demand NATO members pay their membership fees which they agreed to! It's outrageous!

You've got it wrong. It's not NATO fee. It's total defense of each nation over GDP. There's a highly difference.

They want the money AND independence, and hate Denmark for not providing that utopia !

Greenland has two permanent seats in the danish parliament and has outsmarted former danish governments, by being the “final vote” in many cases unrelated to Greenland, but enabling them to get better “deals” than what their size (in population) would justify.

So right now the case is so: Greenland receives subsidies annually ($700 million) but can at any moment chose to say “goodbye” to Denmark, and keep all the values in the ground, with no regards to the astronomical amount of money sent to them throughout the years. Fortunately (or unfortunately for Greenland) a recent report stated that in order to receive the same surplus as they receive today, it would require 26 full scale mines in full operation to generate that ! That report sort of killed the idea of independence ! But the hate remains....
Trump to the rescue, carrying rolls of paper towels!

Hey almost anything is for sale for the right price. Greenland has a price tag. Not sure the United States has the credit worthiness at this point to afford Greenland, but that is another story.

The “Russian” connection has been debunked. You need some new material. Even the MSM has given up on Putin and Trump collusion. I hear Trump puts bananas in his Cheerios... maybe you could make something of this.
