I’ll Trade You My Moon for Your Arctic

OK, let’s get this straight… The Russians now somehow noodle that they have a claim on a good portion of the Arctic because they planted a flag on the sea bed. A cool trick… but “own”!? OK. So, by that logic Sir Hillary nabbed ownership of Mt. Everest for New Zealand… right? And, I guess, by default… the U.S. owns the moon… and all the natural resources each entail are forfeit to the ACTUAL stated partners in the ratified treaties. Yes, this is over natural resources (the possibility of massive oil and gas deposits) and not some hair-brained “we now have command over great technology” stunt.

Or, does ownership change when I capture your flag? I’m confused. [They don’t call it “lunacy” for no reason.]
