I stand by my original wording...Idiots.

Simple basic seamanship is a complete lacking in all aspects of their "boating" as stated above, there has got to be something going on in the back ground, that is not shown on TV.

And, if their Politics, and communications are anything like their boating, I can not see how they get anything done at all. I am all for conservation and protection of our natural resources, but to me, these guys put a serious black eye on the face of the Anti-Whaling groups out there doing Legit work, and I for one have a hard time taking any of it seriously.

Why anybody would be proud of their actions is beyond me, and how in the world people like Bob Barker, and Steve Irwin would allow their names, much less their reputations and money be used in affiliation with that sea going circus is completely mind boggling to me.

I have never been able to watch a single one of the episodes on TV with out having to turn it off with complete amazement in their seemingly endless stupidity in all regards.

I don't know, maybe I'm the idiot for not being able to see the what it is that others see in them....if that's the case, I'm OK with my group of idiots then.

There are plenty of passionate idiots in the world.

I'm no fan of whaling, but when watching that show I can't help but root against the passionate idiots. They are extremely lucky they haven't gotten anyone killed yet.

Yeah, I agree, against whaling or not, the Japanese had a right to defend themselves from attacking wierdos.
The Sea Wierdo's were lucky that the whalers did not pull out that old Japanese made 13.2MM Hotchkiss naval machine gun & waste them. I always hoped that the japs would at least made some warning shots,,
