The US and Russia were only very tenuously allies during the
last months of the second world war. There was a great deal of

It was just a throw-away line to get the jump on anyone who
might want to argue whether or not the US's antagonistic stance
toward the Soviet Union was necessary. Because that's beside the
point; their actions are what's important. I probably should
have left it out. Sorry for any confusion.

Saving fuel was what _I_ was referencing. That is, saving fuel
or time are pretty much the only reasons one would fly over the
pole to get to the other side of the planet. This was well
understood in the late 40s. During the war, the US built several
airfields in Greenland because their planes did not yet have the
range to go the whole way non-stop. But the principle is the
same. The US knew that, with aeronautical advances, the North
Pole was likely to be the route those dirty Russkies would take.

As for the South Pole, I can only surmise that they wanted to
have a look for themselves, being mostly uncharted territory at
the time. One has to remember that the US had suddenly become a
"global superpower." As such, it makes sense that they would
want to patrol the block a bit.
