"Oh but that company saved jobs in Appalachia!"...so, Greenlanders don't deserve the same opportunities? Double standard much?
While Americans sure can keep an eye on what is going on in Kentucky, then it isn't the same way possible for Greenlanders to watch what is going on in Greenland. Simply because there are 6-7000 times more American eyes.
Therefore any foreign activity in Greenland shall be by businesses from countries where business and state are totally separate entities, and it has to be from countries with government principles similar to Greenland (Denmark) with totally transparent legal processes.
That excludes half of the countries on this planet including Russia and China.
