As I said, I have lived in Japan. And yes, I have eaten whale and dolphin. So what? I did not care much for the whale (to much fat), but that is their business.

And while I did agree when they forced most nations to use "dolphin safe nets", I actually agreed with the request from Japan to be exempt. For most nations dolphins were an accidental catch, to be thrown overboard as waste.

When Japanese fishers caught dolphins, it was just another source of food. It was never the killing of dolphins that bothered me at all, but the waste of most of those that were caught.

I no more put dolphins and whales on a sacred pedestal then I would a cow or a pig.
When they're killing my whales, in my whale sanctuary, it is my business.

We put dolphins and whales on a sacred pedestal...Japan tortures them to death.
So Japan can go get ......

We have 'whale watching' industries...Japan has whale/dolphin slaughtering/torturing to death industries.
We are entitled to hate Japan as a result.

Japan is cracking its neck to slaughter Migaloo, his family and friends...America is the only one stopping it.
Long live America!

The war will continue until Japan desists.

Sea Shepherd and its supporters are getting ready for this summer's fight.
Just a pity they don't have larger and faster 'war' ships.
We live in hope.

The fact that you think you speak for an entire nation is ridiculous. The idea that you would "hate" an entire nation over food you are not competing for is even more ridiculous.

Lovely.
Now all Japan has to do is stop slaughtering whales in Antartica, in the whale sanctuary, and anyhwere else.
But it simply refuses to do that, and every year sends its whaling fleet to the Southern Ocean for the war.
Long live those who fly the pirate flag...one day victory will be theirs!


The 'Steve Irwin' ship should be registered in Australia and have;

"Steve Irwin
Australia"

on its stern...and not;

"Steve Irwin
Rotterdam
Kahnawake" [Mohawks, they stood tall and registered Sea Shepherd ships when noboby else would having being bullied by Japan].

Australian govt is a disgrace.

Japan doesn't "have to do" anything of the sort, and there is no "war," there are just some dangerous fools who only survive thanks to the restraint of others. Harvesting a natural resource is not "war," and if managed responsibly will not further endanger the species nor hamper its recovery to previous levels of abundance.
