now dont get me wrong, i support whales and all but who else thinks this show is pointless? All these guys do is try and interrupt the japanese from whaling but its not like its going to stop them... It aggravates me, they should take to the law! GEEZE!

They know they won't stop them outright by just using those tactics, but the whole time they're stopping the Japanese from whaling the companies funding the whalers are losing massive amounts of money. If they're not making money they can't keep on whaling.

I was watching an episode last night where they mentioned that every day the japanese don't get a whale they lose millions, just in expenses.

There is no law in international waters.

Actually there are laws on whaling, but there's a loophole that allows a country to set it's on quotas on whaling for scientific 'research' thereby allowing the japs to whale as much as possible.

The kicker is that they can sell the meat from those 'researched' whales after they've been slain.

They aren't law's they're treaties, and those are notoriously easy to ignore because there's no one to enforce them, for example: The Japanese whalers in whale wars often fish in Australian-Antarctic waters, in a natural reserve, but Australia doesn't stop them because they don't want to threaten the trade relationship they have with Japan.

Being that there is no applicable/effective law, and no body with jurisdiction/the will to apply it; what Sea Sheppard does, is by far the most effective means of dealing with the problem. I've been following them a few years now, and they regularly succeed in preventing the Japanese from achieving their quotas.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

So there is also no law against shooting a bunch of pirates who attempt to board your vessel and/or disrupt your business.

RIP Les Paul, I bet he's forming a kick-ass band up there to play The Great Gig in the Sky. Maybe we'll all have to use a Stairway to Heaven to go see them play. You know I'm funny.
