kbronsito: Isn't their ship called the Rainbow Warrior? I can see why Russia would have a problem with that. (Not that there's anything wrong with it).
Boojum2k: Russia responds by giving them ocean coordinates. . . and a depth.
TommyDeuce: Boojum2k: Russia responds by giving them ocean coordinates. . . and a depth.Man, Putin would have to pose with two cute puppies to cancel out the bad press from killing Greenpeace activists.
Headso: I agree with some of the above posters, if these people are using civil disobedience and interfering with oil exploration as a protest they should be killed.
alice_600: Headso: I agree with some of the above posters, if these people are using civil disobedience and interfering with oil exploration as a protest they should be killed.Hell I'm surprised we're even hearing about it.
brantgoose: Peter the Great never met a sailor he didn't like.And he seldom if ever gave any of them back.That's how he built one of the greatest navies in the world from scratch, although he was also known to pay high wages for shipbuilders and sailors when he could get them honestly.
cgraves67: They might get their crew members back if they lawyer up before heavy winter hits the Siberian gulags, but Russia will probably scuttle their ship on a coral reef populated entirely with endangered species.
studebaker hoch: "The safety of our activists remains our top priority and we are working hard to establish what is facing them," said Ben Ayliffe, head of Greenpeace International's Arctic oil campaign. "They have done nothing to warrant this level of aggression and have been entirely peaceful throughout," he said.You can tell that to Putin. He may only take your ship.
styckx: How many "bad things" has Greenpeace actually stopped outright? I'm not talking about someone saying "ok you win" and then come back the next day after Greenpeace left and do it anway either.. They seem to be nothing but a attention whore organization that doesn't actually accomplish anything
talkertopc: kbronsito: Isn't their ship called the Rainbow Warrior? I can see why Russia would have a problem with that. (Not that there's anything wrong with it).They have more than one ship.
bloatboy: Who, at Greenpeace, thought this was a good idea?"Let's board a Russian oil rig to raise their awareness!". Ok, I'll be right behind you. In Utah, or as far from the ocean as I can possibly get.Maybe they can raise the awareness of the North Koreans next.
orclover: This is pretty serrious. Here is where I store all the farks I give about it[encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com image 275x183]Have fun in the gulag, dont drop the soap. Assuming they give you any.
umad: I love seeing hubris bite idiots in the ass for assuming that every country will behave the way ours will./Hey everybody, I have a great idea! Let's go for a nature walk in Iran!
