Sea shepherd to send fleet to S. Korea

Environmental IssuesAnti-whaling group Sea Shepherd says it will expand its fleet to South Korea's coast to prevent whaling in the region. Ian Campbell, from the Sea Shepherd Advisory Board, says the Australian government's inaction on whaling has forced the group to extend its activities from Australian waters in Antarctica up to the coast of South Korea. South Korea announced its plans to resume its whale slaughter at a meeting of the International Whaling Commission in Panama yesterday. Mr Campbell says the prime minister's plan to have our ambassador protest in Seoul is too little and far too late. He says the government put up the white flag on the issue in 2008 and says if it had maintained pressure on Japan, South Korea wouldn't be resuming whaling. (http://www.skynews.com.au)

Editor's Comment: The International Whaling Commission is meeting in Panama this week, and there have been dozens headlines generated as the various countries announce their plans to resume whaling activities.

I cant stand those guys on the Sea Shepherd and all those anti-whaling ships. They go all over international waters trying to enforce there own interpretations and use dastardly techniques. I watch Whale wars on DTV and always root for the Japanese to lay an ass whooping on those dweebs! Now I guess I can also root for the South Koreans!
