Yes. You are indeed a loon.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 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.
