U.S. INTERESTS IN ITS GEOGRAPHIC PERIMETER, PAST & PRESENT

The Arctic may be a very cold region, but in matters of national security today it is a hot topic. War Room welcomes guest podcaster Dr. Dawn Berry, a renowned expert in the Arctic region. She presents the geographic perimeter of U.S. security interests from the late 19th to early 20th century, which includes far-flung and diverse locations such as Greenland and the Virgin Islands. Presently, both get a lot of attention due to their historical strategic importance, such as Greenland’s special minerals and Virgin Islands’ proximity. How important is this region to U.S. interests today?
