Sara Palin said so herself and I don't doubt that for a minute. Look at the map below:
Besides the mainland, there are several islands that belong to Alaska that are even closer to Russia. Almost half of the Aleutian Islands belong to Russia and those are a hop, skip and a jump from each other. Keep in mind that Alaska once belonged to Russia until Russia brokered the sale with then Secretary of State William Seward to avoid England, who then still controlled Canada, taking Alaska from Russia without compensation. I wouldn't put it past Ras Putin to lust after lost territory, considering he is as mad as the monk we have been associating him with.
