    If you are a hunter you probably gut shoot deer too. I hate slob hunters and they give us real hunters that only take good clean kill shots a bad name. There is no reason to not be as humane as possible and loading live dolphins onto trucks along with clubbing baby seals crosses a line.

    Re: US court declares Sea Shepherd pirates

    Declaring the Sea Shepard organization as "Pirates" does not elevate the motives or intentions of the Japanese in the slightest. In fact, that court ruling is not a comment on the Japanese actions at all, it is only a comment on Sea Shepard. The Japanese, traditionally fond of enormous brutality and sneak attacks, would kill every fish in the ocean if they could. Also deplorable is Japanese fishing to put Shark Fin Soup on the table, they catch the sharks, cut their fins off and throw them back alive.

    I know. But I still root for them to stop the illegal whaling in the anarctic. Does that make me a bad person?

    This wasn't done as a move to combat piracy. It was done as a move to salvage economic US-Japanese ties. Whales be damned.

    What makes you a bad person is spelling antarctic wrong.

    I dont like eating venison so I dont hunt deer. I hunt coyotes and wild dogs and two legged vermin. Dont hurt my feelings a bit, gut shooting the two legged vermin. I try to aim a little better for the dogs and coyotes.

    By the way there is no such thing as a clean kill. Theres always a mess left behind.

    Why haven't these jerks had their asses thrown in jail and their vessels confiscated?

    Probably for the same reasons the Japanese whalers haven't been thrown in jail and their vessels confiscated" The **** occurs in international waters and they operate in countries that support (or at least do not actively oppose) their actions.

    Not really. These encounters happen in international waters, so the US law doesn't apply, necessarily. What it does is make it more difficult for them to dock in US ports, and makes it possible to seize assets in US courts.
