Just wondering what would happen....never say never, right? How tepid would the USA react?
What if Putin said he just wanted "this island" of Alaska's, or "that small region"?
He might say Peter the Great did not represent the will of the Russian people when he sold the land to William Seward on behalf of the United States....
What would the nation do? What would the regime do? What would you do?
I don't think Putin would do this...frankly, as weak as I think Team Obama is, THIS would be enough to push them into military action.
I see another Absolut Vodka ad coming up.
We give him Vermont and call it square.
Alaska is probably promised to whoever owns our debt. I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that our nature resources are used as collateral.
If Obama becomes any more tyrannical, Alaska would vote for secession. haha
Palin would kick his ass back to the Stone Age.
Then he’ll ask for Northern California back as well...
I would imagine the 600,000 residents of Alaska might have something to say about that.
I emailed that question to my rep. the other day. I await her answer.
Glad to see there are others thinking the same.
You are probably correct. Even this loser of a president might draw the line there, but I think Putin might try anyway short of military action just to distract and preoccupy us.
I wonder if Obama is regretting his “Flexibility after the election” promise he made the Russians.
At some point even a pacifist might object to an invasion...
I’d be a lot more concerned about Mexico taking the southwest back. Its already overrun.
Oh I’m not to sure about that. Probably O’bummer doesn’t even know where Alaska is and would probably think it’s another country so he will give it up gladly since they did not vote for him.
No, not Alaska, we counter with Chicago.
He'll no doubt demand Russian Hill back, at least.
Mac daddy will reply in the most serious way by drawing and extra wide red line and follow it up with many, many, many more red lines. There tht will show them just how mad he really, really is and then he will go on another $250,000,000.00 tax payer vacation.
Some it would seem want to go to Russia, but they could be sleeper cells...
Call in all WWII debt from Russia. When Putin says, “But you forgave those WWII loans immediately after the war!” Respond by saying, “That was yesterday, today is today. Just as the sale of Alaska was yesterday.”
Our politicians have been preserving ANWAR for someone, and it ain’t the caribou.
I believe there’s a level or coordination between Washington and Moscow that we can’t even fathom.
If he wants it , now is the time to just take it. Obummer wont do a thing. Of course he has to watch out for Sarah Palin, she may just kick his macho ass.
