The Seizing of the Arctic

Russia is making a symbolic gesture and will be planting a flag at the North Pole– claiming nearly the whole thing and the resources that lay below the water.

It’s an interesting idea, and I wonder how much opposition they’ll really face. But given the resources in the Arctic, it’ll really solidify Russia’s energy needs for decades to come. And it will allow them to become an even bigger energy exporter. And we all know how Gazprom and Russia have been acting towards their neighbors and selling their energy.
