I’ll never understand why Japan puts up with this. They should just sink them and kill every last pirate.

Rinse and repeat. The world does not need Paul Watson in it.

Let’s see. If those hippie losers tried to board my ship, what would I do?

Give them the OBL burial at sea treatment or cut them up for chum?

Chum wins, and Paul Watson would be first.

(Gutsy call)

Why are they so worried about the Shaonan Maru? Maybe if they didn’t drive the Ady Gil in front of it would still be floating.

The sea hippies seem to have completely forgotten that the Ady Gil was sunk when it was cutting across the front of the Japanese ship instead of just sitting there.

Denial or insanity?

They’re definitely hippies, but is it or is it not illegal to hunt for whale meat? From what the show claims, the Japanese are doing it under the cover of scientific research. So, what’s the deal here?

They failed to realize that the Shaonan Maru is not a whaling vessel anymore but a government vessel and apparently can follow them to port. Idiots.

It’s not illegal. And some is done for research purposes as well.

The Sea Shepherds also have tried to shut down traditional whaling operations in the Faroe Islands. (Operation Viking Shores)

These idiots are eco-terrorists.

Dang - I didn’t get to see the Brigitte Bardot in pieces like the Ady Gil. I’m bummed.

I don't like the whaling but I don't like the sea hippies either. I'm rooting for spectacular failure for both, but especially stupid and humiliating failure for the hippies.

It's Ady Gil. Imagine a fragile formula one car cutting off a semi with a very pointed bumper. That's what happens when you cut off a Japanese ship going faster than you.

It was a beautiful thing to see, Tennessee Nana.

The Ady Gil was screwing around, harassing the ship and she ended up in the wrong place in the right time.

The Japanese whaler can’t exactly turn on a dime and they ended up ramming the old Ady Gil.

It was epic.

Played chicken with the Shonan Maru.

If the Sea Hippies’ claim is true, then why would we side with the Japanese? If it really is illegal to hunt whale meat, and if they really are lying about their ‘research’ in order to do it, then I have no problem with any group out there giving them hell, even if it’s a bunch of clueless hippies.

So let me get this strait. Admiral Watson has decided that people officially with the Sea Hippies wouldn’t get help from the Australians, so he got Australians to volunteer to do it on the Sea Hippies behalf, from their boats. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

It's what the eco-fascists want. They WANT the Japanese to shoot at them, while they film, so as to get the Australians upset and damage relations between Japan and Australia.

Here in the Pacific NW there are so many whales they are overfeeding and starving subspecies. They need to be harvested and sold to Japan.

If it really is illegal to hunt whale meat,

LoL. No, it is not.

And if they really are lying about their ‘research’ in order to do it,

They could always withdrawal from some silly United Nations (United Commies) treaty if they are signatory to any anti-whaling treaty anytime they want to. And these clowns have no effective way to really enforce their so-called anti-whale treaty, except cry to liberal networks like MSLSD-NBC to cover whale hunting. Waah.

Oh, I see the Russian Federation is against any moratorium to whale hunting. Hey, why don't Commodore Hippy go after the Russians?

I know why Commodore Hippy won't go after the Russians, cus, they'd sink his rear-end down to Davy Jones locker. LoL.

then I have no problem with any group out there giving them hell, even if it’s a bunch of clueless hippies.

They're lucky the Japanese are sooo nice to these liberal clowns.

And another question. So why aren't these Hippy Sea Hags attacking the Eskimo whale hunts? Heck, I read that they hunt more whales except for Japan and Norway.

Not politically correct enough for these liberal clowns. Oh Nuts. Hippy Hypocrisy!

Felix Gum is great! Made out of Whales. Yummy Yummy!

Mmmm mmmmm good - whales taste good. ;-)

“Oh, I see the Russian Federation is against any moratorium to whale hunting. Hey, why don’t Commodore Hippy go after the Russians?”


Probably because the Russians are quite famous for killing millions of their own people. They’re still doing it to this very day. But Japan is a civilized country and ought to know better, and not a backward hellhole like Russia or China.

But if the whale hunting is not illegal, then my anger is abated. But, whales are noble animals, and I would not hurt one the same way I would never hurt a dog. It’s a barbaric practice, which would explain why they allegedly do it for scientific purposes instead of for eating or using their powdered bones for crackpot Asian medicine.

Journalists, mostly, and opponents of the regime, or others who need to go for political reasons. Occasionally Georgians. Americans, by proxy, through their support of Iran/Syria. Alexander Litnvenenko, who was poisoned with Polonium 210, even alleged Osama’s number two guy (now number one) was trained by the FSB. Of course, Russia kills Muzzies too, but I don’t count them.
