    Ok, so what do you guys think about this? I'll admit, my initial thought to the news of this was that it was a silly idea and probably was a joke. However, after doing some brief research, I think it could actually be a really good move. The article below gives some good points about why it's a great idea:

    Buying Greenland isn't a good idea — it's a great idea

    Not like there isn't precedence for the US purchasing land. My guess though on why the media outlets are discussing this now is so that the majority of them could ridicule Trump and try and make it harder for him to negotiate a deal. Now that Denmark is aware of the deal before they even presented the idea officially.

    Is this risk or monopoly?

    Remember Stewards folly? Yeah you know where we purchased Alaska from the Russkies in 1867, this sort of has the same ring in a weird sort of way.

    It.would be a strategic coup and one of great national importance. Brilliant and near genius, but not likely.

    Not sure how we can afford to buy anything, at this point, much less Greenland.

    22+ trillion in federal debt and 125+ trillion in unfunded liabilities. Yup, we can't afford to buy shit.

    If that happens, I'll move there in a heartbeat and do whatever it is they do up there. Move wood and fight penguins and such? Sure.

    All I read was they want to turn it into a war base and then mine the crap out of it and destroy it.

    So basically we want to purchase the rights to decimate the territory & environment. Nah, leave it be. Denmark at least won't turn it into some massive waste emitting cesspool

    Demark said it's not for sale. Sounds like the beginning of a negotiation to me!

    Do it, but only if the case can be made that their are resources that can be extracted. We need em, and if we dont, then Russia or China will grab em. F that.
