ANOTHER collision has occurred between a Japanese whaling vessel and an anti-whaling Sea Shepherd vessel, this time its latest to enter the fray the Bob Barker. The anti-whaling Sea Shepherd Conservation Society said at 12.09pm today the Yushin Maru 3 intentionally rammed the Bob Barker penetrating its hull and endangering the lives of its crew.

As much as I don't like the idea of whaling for “research” or any other reason I can't help but cheer for the Japs.

“the Yushin Maru 3 intentionally rammed the Bob Barker penetrating its hull and endangering the lives of its crew.”

Good. But didn’t sink it?...The Japanese used to be better than that.

Anything named The Bob Barker should be rammed on general principle. If Mother Theresa named her convent “the Bob Barker”, it should have been flattened to the ground the next day.

I’m confused- the article says that the ecoterrorist boat was the Bob Barker, but the accompanying video is about a boat called Steve Irwin...........

The collision at the very end, involving the Steve Irwin is another related incident showing the bow of the Irwin ramming a Japanese ship. Note that, according to the voice over, the eco-terrorists deny that the collision in that clip (the end) ever occurred!
The first part of the tape appears to be the collision referred to by the title - where the stern of the Japanese ship hits the side of the other.

i’m sorry, but if i’m doing my job... out in the middle of the ocean... and you deliberately show up where you have no good reason to be... you are obviously there to cause me problems. i can either allow you to jeopardize my livelihood and risk my family’s income/well-being, or i can act

and as far as i’m concerned, boo-frickin-hoo. go get a real job, stop messing with someone else’s, and just be glad the fisherman don’t address the situation dockside in a back alley

I am against whaling and believe it should be banned. But these are ecoterrorists and should be put in prison. Eventually they are going to get someone killed.

The society said the Bob Barker had been actively blocking the slipway of the Nisshin Maru, the Japanese whaling fleet's factory ship.

Sounds to me like the one issuing fighting words is surprised he got punched in the face.

IIRC, the Rainbow Warrior was sunk by French commandos. They’re quite a force to be reckoned with, unlike their surrender-monkey counterparts elsewhere in the French military/government.

Out of the cold and foggy night came the British ship the Hood
And every British seaman he knew and understood
They had to sink the Bismarck the terror of the sea
Stop those guns as big as steers and those shells as big as trees
We’ll find the German battleship that’s makin’ such a fuss
We gotta sink the Bismarck cause the world depends on us
Yeah hit the decks a runnin’ boys and spin those guns around
When we find the Bismarck we gotta cut her down

It would appear the Japanese have finally realized that these seafaring terrorists have little support in the real world. They can be beaten down with relative impunity.

probably because whales are not capable of repopulating themselves at the rate at which the Japanese kill them.

God makes whales, Japanese wipe them out = bad thing.

Now that I've had my laff for the morning, "I'll tell you what"...

What if these hippies go back to port and meet with some sort of misfortune while they're out being hippies on shore leave?

Of course the Japanese will be looking around puzzled saying "we didn't see nothin'".

Who's gonna push the issue?

Video seemed to be of Steve Irwin ship turning and hitting a ship marked Research ship.

I’m not sure if that video was supposed to be the incident under discussion.

The really funny thing about this is that if these people stopped making such a fuss the whaling business would probably end inside of 20 years.

The Japanese just HATE to be bossed around.

I understand the feeling.
