Militant Environmentalist Pirates to Challenge Japanese Whaling Ships: It Could Get Ugly

Militant Environmentalist Pirates to Challenge Japanese Whaling Ships: It Could Get Ugly

Since the Militant Environmentalists at sea threatening to challenge Japanese whaling vessels heading to the Southern Ocean do not represent any established government at war with Japan, then it appears that they have all the legal standing of pirates.

As piracy on the high seas is internationally sanctioned, it appears to me that the Japanese whaling vessels – the hollow protestations of Australia’s Environment Minister, Ian Campbell, to the contrary notwithstanding – have every right to send these meddlers to a cold watery grave if they – as threatened – attempt to harm the Japanese vessels.

The Japanese catch, which is done for scientific reasons, has been approved by the IWC. There is not a single piece of legislature from any nation on earth that says Japan cannot carry on its cultural traditions.

The truth is, the anti-whaling groups are just engaging in the same old racist Japan-bashing that they did 60 years ago - at that time they called the Japanese "Buck toothed Yellow people" - and now they attack Japan's cultural traditions.

It is an agenda meant to harm Japan, born from the Tokyo Tribunals and the policies of the Chinese Communist Party, which seek any way to victimize the Japanese.

hi, kun - your last paragraph caught my attention. You raise an interesting point about the Chinese Communist Party. It would be enlightening to track the money and advice trails going to these anti-whaling pirates. It WOULD be VERY interesting if -- as you seem to suggest -- some of their funds and/or advice were coming from Communist China. From what I read, there is no question that the Chinese Government seems currently to be agitating against Japan in a rather vicious fashion -- gunjam
