It depends on who is currently manning and funding the research station at the south pole, which changes on a 3 yearly basis i think

Cause we called dibs. Duh. That's why we have our flag on the moon too. It's like back in olden days where the British, French, and Spanish and other countries would stick a flag in the ground and be all "DIBS IN THE NAME OF MY COUNTRY"

Roald Amundsen from Norway was actually the one who called dibs

I don't know. There are many countryes who are claiming to "own" the South pole. Many of those countryes are working and researching the place. Still, I don't see why it's so important to put the flag there. I mean, if there some Americans walking in to my house and put a flag there. They would claim it as a part of the US. Hust like the moon :)

I don't think it is so much of a 'This is now American soil" type of thing. More just, 'Hey look! We are from the US and we are proud of it". I mean it isn't like they are the Conquistadors or something. I could be wrong, but I believe that is what is going on. And as for the moon, I don't think we ever claimed it. =)

I was joking a little bit around. And I think you understood that ;). I don't know. A few years ago they gifted one of the norwegian "Ski Kings" a part of the moon xD.
