Primitive Japanese Practice Of Whale Killing Continues!!
Japan must be an extremely primitive nation. Their whaling fleet continues to kill some of the most intelligent creatures on the planet in order that some Japanese citizens can have a 'sentimental* taste treat'.
I have nothing but contempt for a nation that disregards both scientific evidence and world opinion in their cavalier desire to convert an intelligent and endangered mammal into sushi. Whales should not be treated the same way that the Japanese commercial fishery treats a sardine.
Let me be perfectly clear if I have not yet done so .... the Japanese whaling industry is criminally insane and deserves to be challenged and condemned! What is wrong with Japanese world view that it so blatantly disregards scientific facts - what a primitive nation indeed! Shame on the Japanese! How can they be considered a 'civilized' people IF they cannot see that whales are one of the higher intelligent life forms on the planet. A humpback whale should neither be considered 'food' nor a commercial resource! They are one of the planets higher life forms and deserve to be treated as such.
"The Japanese whaling fleet, undaunted by international protests, plans this year to catch about 1,000 whales for "scientific purposes" in the Antarctic ocean. Critics regard Japan's scientific whaling a cover for commercial whaling, while Japan argues that it was necessary to catch a number of whales to gain information."
-The Globe & Mail has more ....
* "Japan has hunted whales for hundreds of years, and the meat is a sentimental favorite of people who lived through the lean postwar years, when whale was the chief source of protein because Japan couldn't afford pork or beef. Whale was a common family dish, and many schoolchildren ate it every day."
-Proof of exactly how primitive the Japanese mindset is when it comes to killing whales ...
