Re: “Whale Wars' Captain Paul Watson talks about his 'clients' and combatants

As well-meaning as Sea Shepherd may be, its actions are seen as part of an imperialistic assault on the Japanese culture, and ironically, in saving the lives of 500 whales this season, it has further entrenched the Japanese government’s support for whaling. Brave but divisive acts on the high seas, or bluster and bombast on the safe side of the shore have failed to stop whaling. The only way to get Japan, Iceland, and Norway, to stop this brutal practice is to reach out to the ordinary citizens of these countries and get them to work against whaling from within their own society. Louis Psihoyos’ Academy Award-winning film, The Cove, is making slow but steady progress toward that goal. However, changing a culture takes a very long time and the proposed agreement that the IWC will consider in June at least puts forth a reasonable compromise that puts stricter controls on whaling while setting an end point to this barbaric practice. Attacking the whalers may save some whales in the short term but it will lead to continued slaughter over the longer term. Unless someone has a better way to put an end to whaling, this agreement should be seriously considered. Please visit my blog: http://whaleanddolphintalk.blogspot.com/
