But...There's No There There!

Russia lays claim to the North Pole - and all its gas, oil, and diamonds.


Does Comrade Putin know that the "territory" to which he's laying claim is not only sub-zero 100% of the time, but also under water 100% of the time?

Apparently, though, not all Russians are convinced of the legitimacy of the claim:

"Sergei Priamikov, of Russia's Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute, said (that)...Canada 'could say that the Lomonosov ridge is part of the Canadian shelf, which means Russia should in fact belong to Canada...'"

Never happen. The Russian people, having thrown off most of the yoke of suppressive government regimes, would never stand for losing their hard-won freedoms and being placed under the thumb of CNG!
