I can't see the issue here. They commited an dangerous and illegal act without concern for international law on national property. Pretty open and shut.

(Personally, I disagree with endangering the Arctic with oil drilling and the like but c'mon guys - we have international law for a reason. It's damn Sea Shepherd and Greenpeace that give people that want to see the world a better place a bad name)

There's one place that Sea Shepherd will never go.

Trespassing, yeah. But piracy?

Imagine US commandos doing this to a protest boat.

Well done again Putin leading the world, glad some one has the Balls to step up and make a point out of the eco fanatical nut jobs, next get those sea shepherd terrorists who flout international laws and throw their aces in the slammer too.

The overkill charge of piracy just makes the Russian authorities that much more wrong. 60 percent might be a majority, but when only 60 percent support a government action, despite all the deference to authority we have all had drummed into us since birth, clearly something is wrong with the government action.
