I think the "outrage" over this whaling comes from two different perspectives. The first one is the environmentalist perspective. They don't want to hurt the "big lovable whales". The second perspective is the thinking intelligent perspective. This perspective is mine and it means that we see the whole "research" thing as a something so outrageous that we can't believe you expect us to believe it!

If they were hunting whales without lying about why they did it it would have most definitely sailed beneath my radar. I just wanted to put forth that perspective so the pro whalers would understand it. To me they are just fishermen making a living and I can respect that. I don't respect the "research" ruse though.

I've been following this "war" for a year now. I think the Japanese could turn all the criticism away from themselves if they didn't sell their research specimens. If they really wanted to prove they are doing research they should kill the number of whales they need to do it and then dump them back into the ocean. Otherwise, it's not research. It's a business wanting to make money using "research" as a way to get around the whaling ban.

My bet is that if they took this approach there would be far few kills.
