It cracks me up that people will get all up in arms about animals being killed for food - but they ignore humans being slaughtered for convenience and demand the right to be allowed to participate in that slaughter. I have noticed a HIGH correlation between people who fight for animal rights and AGAINST rights for the unborn. Dumbasses.
Speaking as a member of the Pacific Rim, where Japan is one of our biggest trading allies...do us all a favour and shove it?Bullshit. Tell it to the dead in military cemeteries across the Pacific Rim.
Look, there is NO NEED to hunt these animals for FOOD. They do not reproduce rapidly and they are an amazing creature with a highly developed intelligence. With modern technology they could be wiped out in a few years.
Maybe in 1805 the japanese needed to kill some of these to add to their protein intake. But they do not now. And I for one don't think the Japanese have the right to hunt the whales to extinction when the rest of the world says that is wrong.
The japanese have a reputation for roving the seas fishing in disputed waters and taking more than allowed species using techniques banned for local fisherman. The pillage the world seas. This is just one example of their greed and lack of respect for the rest of the worlds opinion. If they want to pillage their own coastal waters fine. But not the open seas.
I am not certain I endorse everything the Sea Shepards are doing. But, even if they are outside the law they are better than the fucking whalers. And since the world governments are such pussies they will talk about it until the end of the whales I say go for it.
Fuck the whalers.
