    No deal! That's Canadian territory! Our mighty fleet of one icebreaker will be up shorty to deal with the Danes. :D We might not even offer them seconds when we invite them to dinner. That'll show them!

    The North Pole has no land over it and isn't near any coastline, making it international waters. Denmark has no more claim over the north pole than we do over the Gulf of Mexico.

    While there is no land, it is within the martime exclusions zone of Canada, Denmark (Greenland) and Russia. White knight wasn't entirely off. The advantage of owning the North Pole is for the possible natural resources found on the undersea mountains.

    As an interesting side note, the US is one of the only nations that does not recognize Canadian sovereignty on the Northwest Passage and territorial waters around the Arctic, which is very strange.

    Our glorious dark emperor plans on liberating the North Pole from its Canadian oppressors after the election.... well that's what Michael Moore told me anyway.

    We should sign a defense pact with Santa to deter the imperialist Danes and Canadians.
