The Louisiana Purchase has been something we've gloated about in every history class. Those dumb frogs sold us the whole thing for 1 million dollars! Now why don't we just circle on a map the parts that are destroyed or in danger of future destruction and sell it back to them? That way the French will have the expense of rebuilding, policing and feeding the refugees. They get to recoup some of their reputation for one of the stupidest real estate deals in history and we get rid of a festering sore.
