    I know the first comment it's WND, so the red herring is it can't be true, well google it and you will see it's 100% true. Some of these Islands the size of DL are diamond mines of oil. They make ANWR looking meaningless. Yet AK can't drill there and worse yet we are giving it away to our enemies in the East (or West in that direction)! WTF could be the rational behind this!

    If it's for the environment, then why give it to Russia? Russia will start drilling ASAP with no EPA stopping them. We boneheadedly disallow drilling there.

    It makes no sense!

    Wrangel Island, Isle of Jeannette, Henrietta Island, Isle of Bennett's - belongs to Russia.

    But Alaska will have to return.

    How is it a failure? Drilling domestically should be a priority, yet it's not! Now we have islands the size of Delaware that we are just giving away to Russia! Bad move for energy independence! Bad move regardless!

    Weak try and not true. These Islands are under the sovereignty of the American State of Alaska (you know the one your country sold to us for pesos on the dollar :lol:)! Hence the reason it's called giving them to Russia!

    We should probably sell the whole state and pay some of national debt with the proceeds.

    If it happens it won't be because Obama failed it will be because Congress has refused to act for YEARS. This one falls on Republicans and Dems equally.

    It's a prelude to our so-called "president's" plan to hand back all of Alaska to Russia by way of apology (he's so cute when he do dat) for the raw deal Seward gave them.
