Incredible? Hardly. The old European imperial powers were
temporarily in hiatus, so there was a brief window of
opportunity for Uncle Sam to prospect a potential long-term
asset. Real haste arising from a genuine military imperative
would have seen a trip in 1945/6.


>Most of this article is pure history.

A highly dubious assertion. To give but one example: it is quite
misleading to state that 'one of Martin Bormann=E2=80=99s last
messages from the bunker in Berlin to D=C3=B6nitz also mentioned
Tierra del Fuego' without also pointing out that 'Tierra del
Fuego' was the code-name for the Nazi plan, initiated by Bormann
in August1944, to shift German financial and intellectual
property assets into neutral territories.

No, you know what we all know: that Byrd said as much - but
then, as a polar explorer on the lookout for funding, he would
say that wouldn't he?

Byrd was right about that. Antarctica is extremely hostile. But
as the historical record and subsequent USA actions demonstrate,
it is only hostile if you go there!
