Lomonosov Ridge Becomes More Crowded

Several countries are jumping into the fray after the Russians decided to claim the Lomonosov Ridge. Denmark has made the claim the ridge is a subsea portion of Greenland, Canada wants it too and even has plans for military bases to help enforce the claim, and even the United States is weighing its options.

The oil and other resources are up for grabs. Estimates go as high as twenty-five percent of the world's oil could be in the ridge. Expect countries to do almost anything for that energy. Catholicgauze suspects back room negotiations are going right now between the various parties.
