    Default Steve Irwin picks up atail outside of Australia

    Looks like the Japanese aren't waiting for Watson to come to them.

    He tried to spin it in such a way that tsince they are following him they are not whaling, forgetting that the Japanese Government sent two boats to monitor him, leaving the rest of the fleet to do their work.

    I really hope he gets boarded. They are even claiming that they have two Dutch representatives on board with them. Crew fast roping in fro ma helicopter would be awesome

    Also the "No throwing BA" rule fro mteh Dutch last year (which was broken) is now applied to the RIBs as well.

    “This is costing the Japanese government a lot of money.... said Captain Watson. “Our objective is to bankrupt them.”

    Good luck with that moonbat.

    I found an Iridium Sat phone number that is said to be Watson's. I also noticed that you can send a message to it fro mthe Iridium website. Is there a way I can confirm that the number is for him? I am pretty sure it is.

    They got the 'stealth' boat fixed....this is off of their facebook....I cant believe the things people say in support of the whales. Comments such as the Sea Shepherds should tag team so when one ship needs fuel the other takes over, or the simple kick their ass*holes...or calling them murderers. Maybe Im crazy but I cannot understand how wound up these people can get over whales when HUMAN beings die every day in whatever hole in the ground they claim residence....

    Unfortunately, I can no longer even pick a fight on facebook as any comment I leave is deleted in under 5 seconds.

    What I don't get is that if these guys are as useless as everyone says, why is the Japanese government going to the expense of sending not one but 2 ships along with the whalers?

    Useless or not, wouldn't you agree that any government would be acting wisely by protecting its citizens from pirates?

    And by that logic the Japanese government should have despatched several ships to protect their citizens from Somalian pirates, since there have been half a dozen separate piracy incidents off the Somalian coast involving Japanese flagged vessels since 2008.

    It ain't about protecting citizens from piracy...it's about money and/or the potential loss thereof.
