US Selling Alaskan Islands to Russia
« on: February 13, 2018, 06:02:24 AM »
Each morning, I skim through the letters to the editor in the local newspaper.  Most is the normal back and forth arguments about politics and local issues from the same people.  But yesterday, this showed up.  Have any of you heard of this or is this person just another whack job.  I'm voting for whack job, but just curious as to what you think.

SAVE OUR ALASKAN ISLANDS!
Non-elected bureaucrats in the State Department are secretly planning to give away sovereign American territories of Alaskan islands to the Russians.

Our Congress, employed by us, must stop them from handing over Wrangell, Bennett, Jeanette, Henrietta, Cooper, Sea Lion Rock and Sea Otter Rock to the Russians.

Included in the deal will be the 200-mile economic zones around these islands which could afford the Russians massive profits!

These resource rich islands and seabeds will become Russian territory instead of sovereign American lands. Why?

Let your voices be heard with a simple phone call/message by notifying your Ohio congressional representatives and two senators immediately. Stop the funding of our money of these negotiations!

That made the rounds a few years ago during the Obama administration - pretty sure it's a hoax.

^I think FDR tried to give away the Nazi base on the moon we inherited after WWII.   :P

I once tried to cede my backyard to Sweden so they could have a place for the Swedish Bikini Volleyball Team to train. Didn't work. Turns out they didn't actually train at all.  :o  Who knew?

I always suspected that NASA had packed some heat in those moon landers, you know... just in case.
