      For possibly the most apposite comment on this confrontation, see http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/asia-pacific/7873685.stm

      The words of Shigeki Takaya of the Japanese fisheries ministry, “It is an act of violence and it is unforgiveable” are entirely correct – except in one important detail.

      The unforgiveable violence is being committed by the whalers against the whales.

      It is also arguable that the reported use of LRAD by the whalers against non-military personnel is in contravention of international agreements on the limits to use of such weapons. As far as I know, there are no such sanctions against the use of butyric acid.

      Keep at it Sea Shepherd!

      UK government needs to put more pressure on Japan to stop this ridiculous practice.
      The Japanese just don’t seem to understand the fragile state of ocean ecosystems at the moment, particularly in the polar regions. The threat of sudden mass extinctions, due to the rippling impacts of climate change and ocean acidification, is very real.
      Also, their use of the word “scientific” to disguise their commercial whaling programme is a disgrace and makes a mockery of the science establishment in Japan and I think more Japanese scientists should be speaking out about this fraud.
      Dale, I’m glad you raised this issue for the British public to see.

      Christ! Are you lot insured? No, didn’t think so!! I think Wills post touches on something very important. Surely this battle won’t end until sea shepherd go ‘land shepherd’. To appeal directly to the Japanese public, and diminish the demand from the market.

      Just one question.

      Who is supplying this LRAD weapon? And is the use of this weapon on people against international law?

      Sounds like some seriously scary stuff going on out there… but worthwhile if it saves some whales
