  1. If the sea shepherds can sue to recover from the Ady Gil (in which both captains were found to be at fault) then he can sue for the Titanic also, the sscs did not own the Ady Gil, they refused to pay for it (that’s another lawsuit pending). I hope the court does the right thing, uphold the law is all that’s requested here.

  2. What a joke! All one needs to do is watch one episode of “Whale Wars” and see who the true aggressors are. This claim is laughable and requires a response. Keep the pressure on the “illegal” whaling performed by the Japanese fleet and don’t get discouraged.

  3. Scott Grout, that’s why the sscs took them to court, oh wait….
    maybe that’s why all 89 countries in the IWC condemned the violent and illegal acts calling them dangerous and in breach of maritime laws but that was against the sscs too, humm…

  4. ICR is in violation of the moratorium on commercial whaling and has been asked to stop by the IWC. They are also in violation of several other laws relating tot he use of heavy oil under 60 degrees south and refuelling under 60 degrees south. Nuff said. Go gettum SSCS.

  5. Scott, that rope around, and damage to the propeller of the Japanese ship doesn’t reconcile with your assertion that the Japanese are the aggressors here. Just sayin’.

    I’m not American, but I do trust the American legal system to do the right thing here.

  6. If the American crew is performing for a TV show, how can anyone believe they’re getting the whole truth? They’re filming for impact – how about getting the ‘other’ side of the issue too?

    The same IWC that thanked the ICR for the research this year in IWC-63? You don’t know what fuel the fleet is burning, the fleet is able to use lighter fuel and that’s all that is asked. The sscs has the same issue for their ‘pleasure crafts’, re-fueling isn’t a violation either, spilling fuel is. ”nuff said”? not until the case is closed. So in the newest act of desperation paul watson sent out a request for his supporters to harass the lawyers, let’s review, he’s accused of harassment so he asks his flock to harass, brilliant.

    Why doesn’t he just say guilty.

  8. I believe the real point of the issue is being missed. The Japanese whalers hunt and kill whales under the guise of “research”. It has always boggled my mind to figure out why they would require a thousand whales each year for “research”. Clearly, that is such a false front: They not only have the hunting ships, but also a meat processing plant afloat where they prepare and package the meat to sell. The question we must ask ourselves is, who will protect the whales from becoming extinct? Because at this rate, it will not be long.

    Diplomatic tactics, letter writing campaigns, and begging techniques have failed to stop the whale massacres. I do not approve of violence to solve anything, but I must wonder exactly what will work to get the Japanese to stop such incredible cruelty and disregard for these giant mammals. Exploitation of our planet’s oceans will affect each and everyone of us, to the detriment of humankind.

    Can anyone offer any alternative solutions?
