Confused malcontents swilling Chardonnay while awaiting the Zombie Apocalypse.
Quote from the article:
Last year alone, Japan killed 333 minke whales in the Southern Ocean in the name of science.
Exiting the IWC and giving up that Southern Ocean whaling program was a "stupid" decision according to Japan's former chief IWC negotiator Masayuki Komatsu.
"We should go because it's a common property of the ocean," Mr Komatsu said.
"The more Australia claims that it is their own territory and their own oceans, the more that Japan [should keep going] because Australia is a minority.
"Japan and the US and other nations — China and Russia — we are a majority," he said.
I guess you could hardly blame them for the Tsunami.
