Russia in the Arctic
By Michael Mccolley
March 17, 2015
I talked with Congressmen Don Young several years ago about Russia setting up troops in the Arctic. Now I want to know whose property is the Arctic? Is it part of Alaska? Why would we let the Russians take over the Arctic with 4 brigades? Why so many soldiers?
Should we defend the the Arctic as United States soil? I am sure they can attack us if they set up there with rockets & military equipment. This is a concern of all Alaskans.
Oil and much more is at cost here. A stepping stone in history would say Obama was slipping at the helm to allow this.
Could I be wrong? I wonder what the Dept of Defense thinks about them getting ready to defend the Arctic and claim its riches.
Pretty complicated to me. What does Don Young think now with the Russians in his backyard?
