Deathfrogg: Ima4nic8or: Pirates, terrorists...either name fits these whackjobs.  I hope that one day the captain of a bigger ship gets pissed off and rams and sinks their little sea turd.

The factory ship the Japanese are using displaces three times what the Bob Barker  does. The Bob Barker has repeatedly been rammed from behind by the Nishin Maru. The Japanese are the ones breaking the law.


apropos?

Slartibartfaster: ThunderPelvis: There are plenty of Minke whales left, too.

Are you seriously comparing the wild population on Minke to farmed pigs ?
Intellectual honesty is not something you are familiar with ?


There are other fish that are actually overfished and endangered, but Sea Shepherd doesn't give a fark about those fish. They'd rather expend their resources on unendangered minke because it makes for better TV and because people like you have fee-fees for whales and will give them money so they can be travelling, shiftless bums in *style*

AverageAmericanGuy: doglover: Does this mean they can use real firearms against the Japanese whaling fleet?

Yes, but they are limited to muskets, cannons, and flintlock pistols.

They are also allowed the use of cutlasses and daggers.


I'd imagine that concentrated stupidity would also count as a weapon.

About damned time.

Now, can we toss Bob Barker's ass in jail for funding these pirates? The man knowingly contributed millions to these assholes, specifically for their ecoterrorist activities, and they named a friggin' ship after him.

wife watches this.  i will watch every once in awhile but i just don't get into it like she does.  sure I wish the whaling would stop, but come on they fly a pirate flag get me interested start ACTING like pirates for god sakes.  maybe a little something 'ala Jack Sparrow, pull alongside storm the ship and tell the whalers to join their crew or get set adrift on a passing iceberg with some Emperor Penguins.  see someone get run through on the end of a cutlass.  Yeah i know it ain't going to happen but like i said they fly the pirate flag, at least get that captain to stop crying every time he notices the camera is on him.

Mid_mo_mad_man: The people on here who think the Japanese are ramming the Sea Sheperd ship are clueless. What the pirates are doing is quickly pulling in front of a ship that needs a great distance to stop. No more ramming then if u cut off a semi on the interstate.


Go to YouTube and watch the vids. The Nishin Maru is deliberately ramming the Sea Shepard ships from behind. The crew of the Nishin Maru is using flash-bang grenades within feet of a tanker. They've even crushed the life raft escape slides on the tanker itself. The Bob Barker now has several large cracks opened up in the superstucture so you can literally see through to the engine room from the upper deck. All of its comm masts have been crushed by the Nishin Maru. The Japanese whalers are the ones breaking maritime laws here, and laws against poaching whales.

The Sea Shepard people are NOT untrained. They have all the necessary maritime certifications. Many are US and Australian Navy veterans, and have more experience than any National Navy sailor fresh out of basic. Most of the crew have Bachelors or masters degrees in such things as maritime law, oceanography or marine biology.

There are several Ph.Ds on board the Bob Barker and the other Sea Shepard ships.

WillyChase: phalamir: Well, shiat, then just start sinking the Japanese boats.  If you are screwed no matter what, then at least accomplish something.

Alternately, you could always bribe a Congressman to attach an amendment to some bill issuing you a letter of marque, so you have legal cover as long as you turn over half your swag (which will be zero, so amazingly easy to pay the bill).  One of my students once pointed out you could set up a table in any (or all) universities in the US and demand payment from the fratboy/athlete/bro-douche set to let them be pirates (ahem, privateers) in your employ.  Even with the 50% rake-off the feds would charge, you would be rolling in dough.  And the Japanese would be wondering why thousands of morons in Zodiacs were bearing down on them in waves.  Really it is a win-win-win-win (no whalers / no carbon-wasters / I have money / the feds pay off the national debt)

I been waiting for a pirate resurgence to wipe out global warming. This sounds like just the ticket. Can we get this ball rolling?


Well, the power is explicitly enumerated, and belongs to Congress.  All you need is a Congressman you can bribe and/or who has a sense of humor, and you are one must-pass bill with too many amendments to read away from shivering your timbers legally

Sea Shepherd ships, sailing from Australia, often block or harass whaling vessels from the Institute of Cetacean Research, sometimes resulting in collisions.

Yeah, they're ramming them. On a related note I once beat up a guy by repeatedly hitting his fist with my face.

Pretty strange, considering the fact that the Japanese are literally poaching in a protected area. Australia has banned whaling and fueling at sea in that whole zone and the Japanese factory processing ship has repeatedly rammed the Sea Shepard ships from behind and then left the scene.

The Japanese are the ones breaking multiple international laws here.

Why in the flying f*ck would anyone need to kill a whale to research it?  That institute sounds like a thinly veiled front.  Sort of like those tobacco research institutes that are just pro-cancer lobbyists.
