crys free antartica!!!

US has made no territorial claim in Antarctica (but has reserved the right to do so) and does not recognize the claims of any other state.

it is time for antarticans and the world to speak up and free these people!

antarticans deserve their own government, they will not be bullied!

Are you stirring things up?

I think there are a few Greenlanders on here, it's probably best if they answer this. I have no opinions on the subject myself.

Antarctica, you mean? He's trying to stir things up here.

BTW, the U.S. has no official territorial claims, but something like 8 other nations do.

I do hope this is tongue in cheek because Greenlanders and Antarctica are on opposite poles.

Sorry! A genuine mistake, my geographical knowledge is not what it should be.

If any country thinks they can just walk into Antarctica and start pushing those penguins around, they got another think coming.

If anyone deserves Antarctica it's Australia.

A_Wanderer, no one deserves Antarctica.

A nice novel was written about this topic, called "USS Cunningham", one of those books that glorifies the US Navy, easy read, you know.

Oh I disagree, if we just extrapolate backwards at rates of continental drift Australia should retroactively own that continent, hmmm but then Siberia should be entitled to own everything ~ and all the wonderful fossils embedded within. Hell I just spent half a month digging out an old river, the other end of which is probably in Antarctica.

Yeah, I heard there could be a little frost. And the katabatic winds get's a bit chilly.

Noone deserves Antartica but someone needs to protect it. I live not too far away, in the southern part of Western Australia, and my office has been involved with safety issues in Antartica. If noone protects it, Antartica could end up with "people" taking cyanide there. For example.

Yeah, a bit too cold for people to live there-my mom and I were talking about that one time, and she was like, "Can you just imagine the heating bills if people actually did live there?" .

Anywho, I can't say I disagree with the idea of protecting the land regardless...the animals there deserve protection and all that, certainly.

Cyanide in Antarctica ~ Brilliant!

Now all I have to do is nuke the ice of the continent and get to the rich rocky centre Mwhaahaha!
