The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. @BruceKGagnon

Story behind Trump's Greenland 'deal'

A U.S. consulate may appear in Greenland before the end of the year. And Washington doesn't care anymore about Copenhagen's opinion on this matter.

The State Department recently revealed another blowout by Trump, who isn't used to being rejected.

On the backdrop of the Danish Ministry of Defense openly warning of troop deployments to ensure the island's safety against an American invasion, the White House is proceeding with the provocation by proposing to Greenlanders they make up their own mind in which currency they want to receive their subsidies — in dollars or kroner.

Listen to "Sen. Tom Cotton also wants the United States to buy Greenland" on Spreaker.

Senator Tom Cotton, a far-right wing senator from Arkansas, has an op-ed in today’s New York Times in which he says that the United States must purchase Greenland at all costs. Cotton adds that he even raised the idea with the Danish Ambassador to the US a year ago. The Danish government has repeated that the island is not for sale. Is this crazy idea becoming mainstream? Bruce Gagnon, the coordinator of the Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space and a contributor to Foreign Policy In Focus, joins the show.
