buying Greenland

I like the article....
 
Indeed, America’s strategic interest in Greenland has long been recognized. As Foreign Policy magazine noted, the U.S. has tried, twice, to buy Greenland — once after the Civil War and again after World War Two. (During WWII, Uncle Sam used Greenland for military basing and supply; to this day, there’s a major Air Force base at Thule, less than 1,000 miles from the North Pole.)
In fact, in 1917, America purchased the Danish West Indies from Denmark; we paid $25 million, renaming them the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Not the 1st time the USA has considered this. Appears President Trump is usually ready to bust loose with another strategic move.

How would we pay for it? With the U.S. $200 trillion dollars in debt? Maybe the Danes don't want any more funny money?

Denmark has been one of our most steadfast allies. They had the most casualties per capita of any coalition forces in Afghanistan.

That could mean several things, not all are flattering.
