your an animal who owns guns and kills our animals you turd

i quote you from the guns thread

My idea of hunting is usually cleaning up as many feral animals as possible as humanely as possible. I much prefer killing an animal outright by destroying the brain. The best way to do that is with a rifle.

I say go the Sea Shepherd, because without them causing heaps of trouble over the years, our government wouldn't have done a single damn thing towards stopping the Japs. It had no intentions of stopping them. It was only due to the SS that there was any publicity at all.

The Japanese have had millions of tons of whale meat stockpiled for years in large freezer warehouses, that they've never used, so they don't need it for food, and "for scientific experiments" is an outright lie.

And a large survey a few years back had the Japanese people saying they didn't like whale meat and don't eat it.

Sneaky buggers stealing unnecessarily from the sea, they should just piss off with their barbaric practices!

As I've said on here in the past, I don't agree with the whaling either but it's still going on because the Japanese have been using a loophole in the International Whaling Ban legislation for how many years now?
Why the hell don't they just close the loophole?
Then it's illegal, plain & simple.

Sea Shepherd are nothing but a mob of pirate scum, I hope the Japanese have a destroyer escort to protect their ships that turns the Sea Shepherd into an artificial reef.
