According to this news, there might be a chance that Denmark will be able to claim the North Pole as Danish territory:

In Danish:

All I can say is that I really hope that we'll be able to claim the North Pole

And to all Canadians: You can have Hans Ø if we get the North Pole.. sounds fair to me. What do you think? Big grin

Economic reasons. There are lots of natural resources on the North Pole that Denmark would be able to earn lots of money on.

Which one? the magnetic or true?

I say it belongs to no one but the world - like Antarctica.

Well Denmark has invested 50 million USD in an expedition to see if we will be able to claim the North Pole. If we will be able to claim the North Pole, we'll earn those money back and lots more.

Yeah... we'll just have to keep a weary eye out for our southern neighbours though less they show intentions of a regime change up here to make it easier for them to suck our resources dry.

Hey wait a sec... just thought of somefin... If the north belongs to the Danes, then the Yanks will have a beef with them for the oil instead of us. ... and since Danes are somewhere in Europe then we've got nothin to be afraid of. So once they grab the oil and beat you up, we'll just slip right back in and take the land ... Muahahahhaha!!!!!

By all means. Take the north!  mischievous
