    I could see it happening. It holds an excellent military position, situated close to both Europe and Russia, and also has large amounts of untapped natural resources. Plus, it would probably be much more financially stable as a whole if ran by the US

    It also wouldn't be the first time the US has tried to buy it, as an offer of 1.2 billion in today's dollars was sent to Denmark to buy it in the 1940's after WW2

    excellent military position
    so America is at war with who now?

    untapped natural resources?
    yeah just leave it alone if you don't need it, not like global warming doesn't exist and bad enough already

    The total US budget is somewhere close to 4.5 trillion

    No one, but it’s northern centralized position is undeniably a good one. The US already has a military base there

    Last I checked mining gold and other metals doesn’t affect global warming

    Yes, minerals and materials are extracted from the earth using drills and other equipment that is gas powered, but the carbon dioxide produced, when compared to the hundreds of millions of cars and factories worldwide, is irrelevant

    Why do people usually buy land? The US would have near complete freedom to survey the land, construct mines, towns, etc. and essentially utilize the land for whichever purpose they desire, which I’m certain wouldn’t include complete and utter devastation of the landscape much like how Alaska still remains to be a beautiful state after it was purchased in 1867
