Someone is trying to compensate for something :DDDDD
He dont have the moneys axaxaxaxa
YES BUY IT FOR 100 BILLION PLEASE MAKE SCANDINAVIA RICH
OMEGALUL. Least Denmark can gets some free monies :d
Ohh yes please mr. Predsident Trump.
It's called greenland because it is always green and nice. Who knows whats under the ice caps you are melting! I sure dont think it is more water.
Anywho you can build golf resort and enjoy some grabin by the pussy on the exotic fine local women.
Eskimos are very clean, especially no alkohol, and do like to work, bit like germans.
For a small cash price and the 3 Island in the caribbean (we regret selling you 100 years ago). The deal is yours to snatch mr. President with the most negostiating and business skillz ever
People living on those Island make drugs and is a bit like mexicans aswell - call prime minister Mette Frederiksen and get it going. She is so dumb she will agree
I doubt Danes would be that dumb
if that actually happened that would be fucking nuts.
I don’t think the Danes would allow it to happen
How much would the Danes take? 4 trillion maximum most likely 1 trillion so ez just add it to the debt
You ever just like "Imma buy that Greenland place"
He's not gonna do it, but even if he did I wouldn't visit it if I was an american, it's just a pile of ice.
they better have real american food over there
So those 54000 people living there will get free american passport?
Not doing if trump is donig this "for publicity" but he really is embarrassing himself.
Bet they gonna change its name to Land of Freedom or Orangeland
So, the thing about this is, its likely not going to happen. The US has made 2 attempts before and been shut down both times, and danish politicians are calling him a madman for thinking it'd happen. Greenland has very close relations to Denmark, the laws we have in place are there to preserve Greenland and its natural habitat, and there's been plenty of attempts to get mining rigs or the like set up on Greenland, that have been shut down by Danish law for various reasons. The US would very likely turn it into a gigantic mining area, and military outpost (to have one up on Russia and China and all), to extract the valuable resources, with no thought to the Inuits or the natural habitat they want preserved.
There's also the thing with the free healthcare Denmark provides them with, free school and university in Denmark for the Inuits, since they dont have those facilities on Greenland and the medical staff and other supplies we send there to help them out. They can make their own decisions and are a free state within the kingdom of Denmark, and are free to part ways with us Danes any time they like, but i highly doubt Trump/the US would offer up free healthcare, university and medical staff and supplies to the Inuits for as long as Greenland is under US rule.
It's a very unlikely scenario, but funny none the less
Bad investmest. This island will disappear in 10 years
Danes stole it from us, Greenland, the Faroe Islands, and Iceland were formally Norwegian possessions until 1814.
Reading the thread just makes my contempt for US citizens even greater... What a bunch of non knowledgeable ignorant narcissistic people you can not find on this earth...
Lmao this is pretty retarded i like it
why buy it when you can take it?
Already belongs to Denmark + it will probably cost a few trillions anyway
Lmao. And the worst part? The politicians in this country is a bunch of cheap idiots. DW, it’s not going to cost trillions.
Greenland has been "bad business" for Denmark for the last century or so. Not really tapping into the natural wealth (because of preservation concerns), while spending tons of money making Greenland part of danish welfare system, providing (some) infra structure, health care, education etc. The irony is that all the preservation concerns may have been wasted, because Greenland is changing from pollution and global warming.
I´ve been told, that 60% of the Greenland budget is paid for by Denmark, something like half billion Euro every year.
Greenland has had a degree of self government for 40 years, but when declaring they want full independence, Denmark has made it clear it would stop paying the bills.
Making a move for Greenland now actually makes a lot of sense.
Infrastructure is there. With ice melting, new sea ways and possibilities for mining opens up. The chinese have been trying to buy mining rights (like they are doing all over the world). Russia and China is stepping up their presence in the area.
A US takeover is just not gonna happen:
Greenland may want independence, but not as USA property. If Greenland should be associated with another nation, I would point to Canada - closest neighbor and with its own inuit population and with a "European Style" government.
Denmark would want a big return on it´s investments.
The days when you could sell part of your country are over.
Greenland wouldn´t settle for a downgrade of it´s danish style welfare society to US standards, and having americans fund a danish style society anywhere is as likely as Bernie Sanders becoming President.
Also it´s not really in USAs interest to buy. They can simply buy/lease the rights to use certain areas and parts of the underground. Greenland would welcome that, if it could make them financially independent from Denmark => enable full independence.
Fun fact: Greenland isn't green and iceland isn't full of ice. More news at 11.
NT: “We’re open for business, not for sale,” the ministry of Greenland said.
Islam is a religion of peace, according to the Holy Book Quran, Islam teaches love and compassion for every human being, no matter their religion. The word “Islam” is derived from the word meaning “peace” in Arabic, it seems quite unnatural that a religion that names itself peace can teach or preach something that is violent or full of aggression. Islam is a religion revealed to mankind with the intention of presenting a peaceful life. Almighty Allah calls all people to live by the moral values He sets so that compassion, mercy, peace, and love can be experienced all over the world.
In the Noble Quran Allah (SWT) says: “O You who believe! Enter absolutely into peace (Islam). Do not follow in the footsteps of Shaitan. He is an outright enemy to you.” (Quran, 2: 208)
