    ramming other ships
    No.
    blocking and preventing access
    Yes.

    sabotaged
    No.

    shooting water canons
    No.

    throwing stink bombs
    Sure.

    trespassing
    No.

    chaining themselves to property
    Sure.

    intimidation
    Too encompassing.

    Nice try but stopping someone for getting rid of slabs of meat that are basically parasites is a lot different that killing someone who deliberately takes innocent animal life. I have no problem to saying I am glad when someone takes the life of someone who kills innocent animals.
    Yes. You are indeed a loon.

    According to the definition provided earlier in this thread, politics isn't a required motive.

    –noun 1. the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, esp. for political purposes.

    I'd do arrows and circles if I could.
    I don't doubt the especially part, but especially doesn't mean it's required. There can be other motives. Note the difference.

    Re: Who's at fault?

    I like whales, dolphins and sharks etc. Probably because I am a professional level diver. I love the ocean. The Japanese are out of control and hunting certain sea animals into extinction.

    Being a diver I have no respect for a fishing fleet that catches sharks, cuts off the fins and throws the rest of the animal back to slowly drown.

    If they all got blown up tomorrow, the world would be better off.

    As for the OP, yes the Japanese fishermen are correct to defend themselves.

    No, hunting whales is so unnecessary.

    Purposely ramming, is not acceptable, that captain is damn lucky there was no loss of life.....
    That does not condone the BS tactics of the smaller ship....

    The smaller boat was the agressor, firing prop foulers and stink bombs at the ship. The ship has every right to defend itself...
