So I call this quiz too fall-centric
Honestly, I doubt the U.S. would have to buy Greenland as Greenland has a great deal of autonomy and Denmark would likely cede ownership if the people of Greenland voted to leave.
The proposal is not nearly as wacky as it seemed to me at first:
If there are any JetPunk users from Greenland, I'd love to hear what you think!
The "buy"-Part was the whacky part about it. You can't buy a country like real estate, and we're not living in colonial times anymore.Of course, Greenland choosing to leave the Union with Denmark and join the US would be entirely possible, not a big problem for Denmark and a big *** You to Puerto Rico.
Although it is to say, that that would most likely mean, that the US had to take on the massiv subsidies, the EU and Denmark are putting into Greenland right now, mostly for the benefit of Big Companies who could more freely exploit the Greenlandic Ressources that are freed through climate change.
I put 'Astana' as a joke (as I am wont to do for my own brief private giggles) and ludicrously it was accepted! I was more horrified than happy, I must say!
Biggest story of your lifetime, though, really?
