Dude, Where's My Bow?
Somewhere, Bruce Wayne is pissed. Fans of Whale Wars or the Whale Wars spoof on South Park know of the long standing fight between the crew of the Sea Shepherd and the Japanese Whale "Researchers." Things got amped up a bit as the Sea Shepherd's new trimaran, the Ady Gil, lost 10 feet off it's bow when the Shonan Maru ran into it. No one was killed, and only one crew member suffered broken ribs.

i'm not a fan of killing whales but i'm kinda glad the japs are fighting back. i don't know how the actions of the whale lovers can be seen as anything but terroristic. so if the japs wana fight back, then by all means, go for it.

Seriously though, for just a moment. Who is it that would actually police international waters such as these? And whose rules/laws is Japan in violation of? I really don't know so I'm asking. Are the whales that Japan is harvesting illegally an endangered or protected species?

The Sea Shepherd spokesman is speaking a clear untruth.
The Ady Gil is under way before and during the collision. He says they were not moving. In the earlier part of the video, the japanese ship can be seen to be on a course that would pass clear in front of the Ady Gil, if ONLY the japanese ship was moving. And well before the collision you can see wake behind the trimaran.

I don't like the bullying tactics adopted by the eco-warriors, I'd say they're free to observe and report to their nations, the U.N. etc, and press for action at government level. But instead, they seek to physically disrupt the whaling fleet, which claims its actions are in fact, legal.

Sea Shepherds actions, whilst they may be well motivated, are effectively piracy.
