    Obviously you do not know the history of either countries.

    Iceland is partly a glacier. It is also very green due to it being a volcanic island (think Hawaii on that one.)

    Greenland is a different story, which I won't go into depth. It was named that to attract Viking settlers way back in that age.

    If I remember correctly, I think my history teacher from like 7th or 8th grade said something like Iceland was actually the nice area with the warmer climate and Greenland had the harsher climate. Greenland is mostly glacier. I think you've got the two confused. Anyways he said that the name Greenland was given to the one with the harsher climate and topography to attract more settlers.

    Eh, I guess I should've elaborated a bit more.
    It certainly has been a long time since I've taken a geography class.

    Yes, Greenland has a harsher climate, that's for sure.

    Wow, looks like alot of yall are cutting geography class to hang in Channel Zero...

    Iceland is a very dope island. People there are super friindly and the girls are uber hot. Reykjavik (the metropol/capital) has an excellent clubbing scene and a blooming graffiti culture. Icelandic writers are fucking fun. Iceland has some of the most beautiful nature on earth, with hot springs and plenty of ice (wink wink). Icelands real name is Island, meaning Is=Ice , Land=Land. But it didnt fit with the english language to call it Island I guess.
    Greenland is a danish colony, its the biggest island in the world, only continents are bigger. Denmark fucked over Greenland and the native eskimos kinda the same way as the americans fucked over the indians. Its a wast beautiful country, but all the cities are fighting alcoholism, unemployment, etc etc. The US has a very important military base there, in Thule, its a crucial part of their defense and loads of sketchy things go on there. I dont why the danish goverment lets them have it there, but its typical that we do everything the US goverments wants, Iraq being the latest mistake we help out with.
    Greenland was named Greenland cause in the summer the shores are quiet green and it was discovered by danish vikings in the summertime where it was a little easier to sail around.

    Thanks for the info. Greenland has always been a mystery to me. They're never on the news getting involved with current affairs and shit. :lol: It seems weird to live in a country where the majority of the country is an uninhabitable glacier that sits right in the middle.

    We also have a military base in Iceland as well. As far as why these bases are here, my best guess is that, like most U.S. bases in Europe and elsewhere overseas, they were built during the Cold War following WWII to act as a deterrent to the spread of communism. The establishment of NATO was obviously a factor as well. It may be obsolete now, but back then Europe welcomed American power to deter any possible westward expansion of the Soviet Bloc.

    I think America needs to get rid of the bases in Europe, Japan, and elsewhere because I don't think it's really needed. Europeans that oppose the bases will be happy and it will cost less tax dollars for America and won't leave our forces so thinned out. It's a win-win situation for both sides. If the Soviets or any other direct threat were to threaten Europe, I'm sure the Europeans will have no problems letting America come over to help them out. Until then, those bases aren't really even necessary.
