Japan fleet sets off to hunt humpbacks


news.yahoo.com

A Japanese whaling fleet sailing toward waters off Antarctica to kill protected humpback whales was itself the target of a hunt Monday by environmental activists who vowed to disrupt the expedition.

The Japanese fleet was embarking on the country's largest whaling expedition, targeting protected humpbacks for the first time since the 1960s.

Now I really do not understand this.

How come, that are allowed to go and send an entire fleet of ships to kill several protected humbpack whales, and the only people who are actually REALLY doing something about it, are the local Greenpeace "criminals". What about the entire International community? And this fleet has orders to kill up to 1,000 whales, including 50 humpbacks. The 239-man mission plans to kill more than 900 minke whales as well as fin whales and humpbacks, in a South Pacific whale hunt that will run until mid-April.

hmm, is it a crime in Japan? It doesn't appear to be, maybe they just don't care what the 'international community' thinks, only what their own laws and people think...

If their laws and people think this is OK, then why should we tell them what to do?
