How is this legal? A pseudo military force policing international waters, why can't the Japanese navy just sink them?
>How is this legal? A pseudo military force policing international waters, why can't the Japanese navy just sink them?
It's not legal but Sea Shepherd don't care because they're no cucks.
The Nips COULD sink them but they since they're a nation of cuckolds they lack the ballls.
This it's not at all legal, I wish someone would step up, regardless how you feel about these people it's a dangerous setting to allow them, next you know if I hated BMW's and had a billion dollars could just start smashing containers.
Hell no, they've been port jumping every few months because countries refuse to let them flag from their ports.
>Why can't they just sink them?
Because Nat Geo or who-the-fuck-ever on TV runs around with cameras with them and makes prime time episodes out of it, it would be a colossal PR disaster.
Organized, yes, not anywhere resembling a real force though. They have water cannons and ramming prows, no firearms or incendiaries. Another reason nobody has shot them yet.
Sea Hippies. Harmless, attention-seeking idealists.
If we could get a ship together for /k/ and manage not to invade sealand or anything small countries along the way we could capture their ship and have twice the ship.
The captcha gods have spoken.
I remember back in the mid-00s there was talk of forming a naval PMC for just this thing.
But unless you can scrape up the dosh for one of two former south african missile corvettes that were decommed in the US, and then for electronics, ammo, weapons, and a BOFORS, you aren't gonna do shit.
Keel Laid for Sea Shepherd’s ‘Dream Ship’ at Damen - October 13, 2015
>The keel has been laid for the new flagship of the controversial marine wildlife conservation organization, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, at Damen Shipyards Antalya in Turkey.
>Sea Shepherd touts the vessel as their “dream ship”, capable of achieving speeds that “far exceed” any of the vessels in the organization’s fleet.
>Sea Shepherd ordered the new ship earlier this year after winning 8.3 million euros in the postcode lotteries in the Netherlands. The vessel appears to be a modified Damen Fast Crew Supplier, a line of purpose-built vessels from Damen Group featuring the innovative Sea Axe hull form and known for their seakeeping and fuel efficiency.
this meme need to die
we all know that a Typhoon could make a perfect /k/ompound
shit even have a shooting range
i grew up on a farm with cows, and there were whales in the fjord outside my house all the time. I've been enough around both.
Really, the ethics of whaling all depends on what kind of whales you hunt. Blue whale is a big no, since they're threatened by extinction, minke whales are a whole other deal, since there's shitloads of them.
Sure, whales have some sort of intelligence, and can be empathic towards each other. But pigs are also smart as fuck, we eat them. Crows are smart as fuck, and we kill them.
Whales are not some super special unicorn that deserves more protection than other animals. If they're not threatened, kill them, if they're threatened, don't kill them.
Only reason i don't eat whale, is because it simply doesn't taste all that good.
They arrested a couple people that boarded a ship.
They also throw stink bombs onto ships.
I'm fairly certain that ramming, boarding, and chemical weapons are all offenses that would allow one to take defensive actions.
it is also true that American nuclear sub are as shit as Russian nuclear sub
Typhoon is less shit because it is have swimming pool and stuff
Japan is getting less passive. Maybe the spirit of the Samurai will once again posses them all, and next thing we'll see is all those faggots being boarded by Japs in full Samurai regalia...or just using helicopters with missiles made to look like Hello Kitty.
Well legality had nothing to do with any of this since international water has no laws. The Japanese could sink the ship with zero repercussions.
They have a right to defend their ships but the families of the victims all have the right to sue. But the gov of Japan has the right to not pay. A country and a person can do whatever it wants in international waters.
Well. We could get enough money to get a seafaring vessel and a Japanese whaling company to say "HOKY ROUND EYE", we could do it.
I have about $600 dollars to my name. I'm willing to invest about tree fiddy. Where do I sign up?
In reality i give 0 fucks about whales dying, but after watching a few episodes of the first season, and doing reading, im sick of the jap whalers just on principle.
they talk like a meathhead when you bust them shooting meth into their own arm, they still deny deny deny, and get mad at you for attacking their character, shit pisses me off
Oh dear. I change my opinions on whales now!
But objectively speaking, >>27558337 IS correct.
They hunt indiscriminately. Even the Blue Whale has been found in whale chow in Japan.
What would happen if one theroertically managed to get ahold of a boat and rig a 20mm cannon to it and balst these rainbow pirates to Davys locker and flase flagged under ISIS flag?
could one simply pull down the flag and repaint the boat and glide into the nearest port and disappear
Your specific country might have laws against piracy but they would have a hard time proving you didn't "find" it floating in international waters. A civil case might be more realistic.
From what I've been reading you could still be charged by the country you fly a flag for, the country you come to port in, and the UN. International waters aren't actually lawless, there's a UN pact that governs them.
JASDF has the power to do something since the repeal of Article 6. I dont think those hippies would try to ram a Japanese destroyer.
>pic related its the Atago
There's a reason why that pic is in black and white.
Never change, Vatnik.
I don't have a problem with hunting non-endangered species at all, if it's done consciously and with the populations in mind (like with deer in the USA).
Indiscriminate hunting of endangered species though is a different matter.
Doesn't mean I think the Sea Shepherds are right. They're assholes who care more about publicity than actually reducing whaling. The only people who can stop them are the international community in general.
While they are doing a lot of illegal shit, like boarding other ships without permission and avoiding the law by porthopping.. they do get illegal fishers out too, not just the whaling kind..
And the Japanese have a borderpatrol fleet that is going against them to protect the whalers, there have been collisions and some of the artsy shitty ships they had have even sunk.
They are not organized and most of their crews are new to the sea, idealistic ecohippies that can maybe last one year.
All in all, I think you should look more at greenpeace, they board ships illegally, porthop and endanger sea oil operations.. and if they keep doing it, they will eventually cause an oil spil eco disaster, the very same thing they are lip servicing of trying to prevent...
so, you're fine with how Norway does their whaling, and not how Japan does theirs.
Norway don't hide behind "muh research vessel", they're pretty open about how they hunt whales for food, and they don't hunt endangered whales.
The US will actually prosecute you for crimes committed abroad. Which includes international waters.
It's stupid but on the other hand they need concrete evidence. Cleaning up a crime scene is probably extremely easy out in the ocean.
NIPPY GOOKS COME ON DOWN
>Indiscriminate hunting of endangered species though is a different matter.
Why, though? The presumption is that more biodiversity is better, but that has yet to be justified. A whale species on the verge of collapse will not have much effect on the ecosystem if driven to extinction, since such a small population doesn't really do much. And since the ecosystem is complex and generally has redundancy, the effects will be balanced out after a few generations.
>implying you shouldn't
The world needs less people like you.
No, its because norwegians are beautiful aryans and japanese are yellow subhumans, so whity gets a pass despite them both eating the same food despite the slightly cruel practice of whale hunting.
Its also why Icelandic people get away with eating shark and horse while Chinese people get made fun of the same thing.
Wait, there's a commercial shipyard commissioned by known terrorists to construct a purpose-built pirate ship?
How is that allowed?
Even Blackbeard couldn't just walk into a shipyard with a chest of gold and buy a warship.
fun fact, japan has the death penalty, and they do it right... no bs about "do we have the humane deadly drugs? what does the media say?" nope, they put you on death row, pick an execution date at random, inform you that morning that you will be killed, no visitors allowed, they give you a last meal, then they hang your criminal ass... they do try and make sure the family is the first informed of their loved ones death sentence being carried out before the general public.
Because it's for a show. At least back before I stopped watching it, they'd always track and lose the same whaling ship, then find it again, harass it, lose it, find it, harass it, lose it, repeat. They don't actually harass real whaling ships because then they'd have to step up for real and get their shit wrecked. Maybe the show has changed since, but it used to be completely staged.
You're doing it wrong. Get a tall ship, mount 12 pounders, sail up alongside, run out the guns and give them a taste of grape. Come about smartly and give them the other broadside. Close up alongside, and away boarders.
Due to the territorial claims in the China sea, and since shooting at each other is shunned upon by the UN, the japs (and ) have equipped their fishing boats with armored prows and giant engines. And when they encounter someone on their claims they just ram them and pretend they didn't saw them before the impact. They made boats that specialize purely in ramming, now.
Don't worry, if the japs could get away with it, sea shepherd would be eating plakton by now. It's just that SS have very good PR.
Can they reason? Are they self-aware? Can they create guns and rockets and trains and cities and colossal structures that defy nature on a daily basis?
DID THEY GO TO THE MOON, ANON? DID THEY?
Did you go to the moon?
Did you invent anything important?
Are you going to make any change in the world whatsoever? Odds are strongly against it.
The same is true for Japanese fishermen.
Logic dictates that the most valuable animals will be more valuable than the average human. There are 7 billion humans and no sign whatsoever of a shortage.
And whales are pretty cool.
Mammals the size of office buildings with 7 ton tongues, aortas large enough to swim through and the largest penises known to man.
Fuck, I'd drop another nuke on Japan to keep that shit around.
There, have some footage of their ships getting rekt.
I bet the Japanese whaling industry would hire /k/ in a heartbeat if we had a ship or two. I'm pretty sure everyone here would like to show those smug fucks what it really means to be a pirate.
There was a thread about a week ago where /k/ helped pick a decent sized ship out for a guy that was legitimately going to be able to buy a ship within a year or so. He was picking it out as the official first ship of /k/'s navy. The ship we picked for him was a former anti-pirate vessel.

Oh yeah I forgot that we fought Japan once so we can never be friends with them again just like with England and Canada and Mexico and the south and Spain and Germany and Italy and Vietnam and Russia.
Not really. It's not like Japan has a large whaling fleet since it's supposed to be for "research". If the Yushin Maru is the primary harpoon ship, that's the one the hippies are going to be harassing constantly. There's no point throwing shit at the factory ship.
I may hate hippies, but whales are pretty cool.
I support environmental conservation as long as it involves really cool animals.
The one thing that bugs the shit out of me about the Sea Shepard people is that they haven't managed to make contacts with the yakuza and arrange for whalers to start being found dead.
You missed the point completely. There's no point in throwing shit at the factory ship WHEN THERE ARE OTHER SHIPS ACTIVELY HUNTING WHALES AT THE SAME TIME.
It's at least legal under Japanese law, and they are not fishing in anyone's territorial waters, so it's legal. If the Japanese were doing something truly criminal, the Australian and New Zealand navies would stop them.
Did anyone actually read through this? It's literally a list of terrorist actions against sovereign ships. How the hell are these guys not all arrested, especially after using explosives to sink ships in a port?
>convince hippy faggot sea hippies that there is tons of illegal whaling going on in Syrian territorial waters.
>send Putin postcard reading "Fuck You Vlad" with sea hippy return address
Yeah if I remember correctly he just so happened to be wearing a bullet proof vest and a bullet magically appears dead center of it despite no sounds of shooting and I think he was inside the ship as well
The funny thing is, I'm sure that most of SS greatly admires the USSR, who during their day killed more whales than just about anyone in history... they just lied about it, until documents came to light after the Wall fell.
Thats a good fucking question. I've been reading through the list of actions that they have done for the last 40 years and they are literally terrorists.
>Sea Shepherd spent part of 1979 hunting for the whaling ship Sierra... To increase the effect of a ramming, the bow of the Sea Shepherd was filled with approximately 100 tonnes of cement. In July, the Sierra was found off the port of Oporto, Portugal. Sea Shepherd put non-essential crew ashore and manned by three crew, returned to ram and cripple the Sierra. The Sea Shepherd then attempted to reach the United Kingdom, but was intercepted by the Portuguese Navy and escorted back to Oporto. The Sierra was able to make it back to port for extensive repairs In Oporto.
>Watson decided to scuttle the ship rather than have it be sold for scrap and potentially used to compensate the owners of the Sierra
>While in Lisbon in February 1980, the Sierra was sunk with limpet mines.
>In a 2004 interview Paul Watson said, "Meanwhile, the Sierra had been repaired and was ready to return to sea. It never did so: on February 6, 1980, my crew blew the bottom out of her and permanently ended her career. We traded a ship for a ship, but it was a great trade because we also traded our ship for the lives of hundreds of whales."
>In April 1980, explosives were used to sink the whalers Isba I and Isba II in Vigo, Spain. Watson said that the boats were "victims of magnetic mines, one of them homemade, which had been planted by the same trio that destroyed the Sierra." Sea Shepherd does show these vessels on the tally of vessels "sunk" on the side of the Farley Mowat and the back of some Sea Shepherd shirts. The whalers Susan and Theresa are also shown on these tallies.
>In November 1986, The Hvalur 6 and Hvalur 7, two of the nation's (Iceland) four whaling ships, were sunk by opening their seacocks while they were moored in Reykjavík harbor.
I'm not a military man but I'd love to organize some vets to make an NGO that is basically the red cross with guns. Goes into high destabilized parts of the world and basically defends the normal folk just trying to get by from all sides.
However I'm pretty sure at best this would be considered a mercenary organization by the UN and at worst a terrorist one...
I really have to wonder how this fag Watson hasn't found himself sitting in a prison cell somewhere for the rest of his life.
I'm guessing it's because he targets countries that won't fuck his shit up, which is why they don't try these kind of stunts with the Russians.
I also have to wonder if anyone would bother bringing charges against you if you blew up their ships in port.
rolf. and then some Putin puts his dick into anglosaxon mouth by making a simple fucking border patrol boat into strategical weapon which nukes ISIS from caspian sea.
>which is why they don't try these kind of stunts with the Russians
>In July 1981, The Sea Shepherd II sailed for the Bering Sea with the intention of harassing the Soviet whaler Sevetny. The IWC had authorized a Soviet take of 179 migrating whales off the Siberian coast. On August 10, the group photographed what they considered an illegal whaling operation at an onshore packing plant. The Sea Shepherd II was pursued towards American waters by Soviet helicopter gunships and a frigate. The Soviets signaled for the Sea Shepherd vessel to stop, dropped flares on the deck, and attempted to foul its propeller. The Sea Shepherd II remained in the area for several days despite the Soviet warning of "decisive action" and potential espionage charges.
>In the summer of 1982, Watson offered a reporter an exclusive story on the group's plan to ram a Soviet vessel. The reporter informed authorities and the ramming did not take place. On September 13, 1982, Watson dropped paint filled light bulbs from an airplane onto a Soviet vessel to protest the country's whaling. The ship was positioned off the coast of Washington state's Cape Flattery and believed to have been monitoring a nearby submarine base. Watson and Sea Shepherd were charged with violations of Canada's Aeronautics Act. The charges were dismissed by a provincial court judge because they did not specify where the act had occurred.
Its fucking amazing that this man is not dead or in prison for life. I want to think its just dumb luck and not actually being talented in this sort of thing because he is literally dumber than a bag of hammers.
My guess is that the Soviets didn't waste them on the spot because the cold war was still going on at that point. It would be pretty bad if they killed American/European citizens.
ok if /k/ gets it shit together I would sign up to keep the japs killing whales.
Don't get me wrong I hate the japs, and I also hate hippies .
But what I really hate in this world is whales. Why?, Because I spent half a year having to make fucking bronze whales for people that like whales WAY too much.
These fuckers would spend 6 to 7 thousand dollars on a fucking bronze whale. The worst part is that each whale needed to be "perfect". I would spend 2 hours on average making sure that the whales junk, yet alone the days to make the fucker. oh and these fuckers knew there whale junk. They would send anything back that did not have the "feeling" of a whale. What the fuck dose that even mean? do they summon dead whales in the fucker, or have weird sex to it? I will never know, but I know the whales must pay!
I don't even like the sea. I swore I would never get back on a ship, but to help people to kill whale I would go back to the bitch they call the sea.
And I will a fix a small whale on my nagant, and shove right up a hippies ass..
tell me more about Canada my dear ukrainian whore.
If it doesn't have a shipping registry it doesn't matter. The only landlocked country that has one of those is Mongolia, and they'll probably do anything if you give them a portable stove.
That doesn't matter if you can just defend from any boarders. Your only real problem will be from a navy and having a nations flag won't do jack shit to stop them from boarding you.
If you piss off a country enough they will send a naval force after you, flag or not. Registry doesn't really matter.
The US will prosecute you for crimes committed abroad. As in US laws.
If you attack a ship and murder the crew in the middle of the ocean you can still be prosecuted when you get home. Your only chance is to do it quick and destroy the evidence or sink the ship.
If they get a distress signal out you can bet your ass the nearest warship will be on its way flank speed.
>having a nations flag won't do jack shit to stop them from boarding you
Not true. Having a flag requires them to at least have pretext to stop you and then board you. If you aren't flying a flag of convenience, it'll usually keep you from being harassed if you're not committing a crime. If you aren't flying a flag, however, you can be boarded and arrested at any time by any warship. They don't even need a reason, and in fact I believe they're encouraged to do so.
No doubt if you upset them enough , but I'm just saying that from the get go , if you sail a vessel with no registry or flag , you are not legal and will be fucked over by the first navy or coast guard vessel that spots you.
Enjoy being charged with piracy and losing your vessel even before you /k/ it up.
Well unless the nation of the ship that is being boarded is going to do anything about it, unlikely, it really doesn't help.
The US navy can and will board any ship they want if they feel it will stop a crime or in some way help them. So what if the registry country objects. What are they gonna do?
Same thing applies for other countries navies, the US won't give a flying fuck if on of our ships is stopped and searched if a country believes illegal activity is going on. And there is nothing we can do unless we are there. and we won't unless we think it is irrational, like iirc Iran stopped and boarded one of our ships for shits and giggles.
There is no international state, therefore there is no international law. International law is simply what individuals nations feel like doing on a given day. And no I am not being edgy, I bet you thought Interpol has police officers ? Wrong Interpol has no agents to make arrests with.
But let me rephrase. I agree with what you are saying. Having a flag will deter a search a BIT more than having none. Especially if it is a powerful flag. But only if your aren't commuting s crime.
>Whereas Japan sneaks around pretending to kill whales for "scientific research," the Norwegians have blatantly defied the moratorium with commercial hunting. Like Japan, they have raised their own quotas year after year.
>mfw they hate us more than the nips
norwegian coastguard have run into them several times, but they usually rams them and shit. don't think they are very active up here
as an australian/shitposter I can explain it to you really simply
there is a big treatie about whaling signed by heaps and heaps of countries
japan signed a nuber of such treatise, and jus breaks them willy nilly
they have also been whaling in other countries territorial waters
the reason they do this is because the Japanese have a latent fear of not being able to support their population, and of loosing their traditions; so for Japanese politicians it's an easy sell
many austalians have a strong will to protect the environment, and form a voting bloc
the sea shepard is a bunch of eco-terrorists, who try to stop the japenese, and only the japenese
many australians support the sea Shepard
the sea shepard has been enormously sucessful in it's roll, stopping the entire japenese whaling fleet at some times, and saving countless whales
what makes this issue intractable is that the sea sheapard is doing something the australian navy would be perfectly within their rights to do, so any attack on the sea sheapard would be seen as an attack on australian maritime authority; which would draw a slew of critisizm from a large number of asian and euro countries
>tldr she sheapard is doing australia's navy's job for them, australia prefers this "unofficial enforcement" , and the japenese can't do shit because they are breaking the law and have no navy
I've often wondered if you could secretly contract (for sweet pay) with the Japs to infiltrate sea Shepard crews and bring aboard GPS trackers so the whaling fleet can avoid the Sheps.
>ships now worth millions of dollars
>ships now have multiple methods of satellite communication
>also have several methods of location broadcasting mandated by law
>one that only broadcasts after a ship sinks
You'd get one before the US Navy starts hunting you down. Get two and they won't try to bring you in for trial.
they need attention to gain funding, as the government can't bee seen to directly support them because of the grey area they fall into
and they have actually been really effective, they used to just ride up the ass of the japenese so they blocked the chutes the whales were drawn up
they also shielded whales with their ships at enormous risk
that is more or less true, however that was when sea shepard too a much more aggressive line
also there were serious consequences for japan, many small asian countries saw japan as an aggressor because of it
australians are even more reluctant to give japan our defence contracts for submarines
now there is a fight for the china sea, more countries will think japan is not the victim
all for the price of some small boat
>and they have actually been really effective, they used to just ride up the ass of the japenese so they blocked the chutes the whales were drawn up
No, anon, they really haven't. They've briefly interfered with one ship at a time out of over a dozen, and that's one ship for about 10% of the time. The other 90% of the time, they're looking for a ship to mess with. Meanwhile, the factory keeps churning meat.
These chucklefucks are obviously in it for the glory, not any real change. Anyone who's read up on Watson's life can easily diagnose him with a narcissistic personality disorder.
No it sank, but:
"Ady Gil’s skipper, New Zealander Pete Bethune, claimed Mr Watson had ordered the vessel to be deliberately and secretly scuttled to increase public sympathy.

If they were in it for change, the Steve Irwin would have a deck gun and the factory ship would have been sunk long ago.
Losing one of those would put the whalers out of business for at least a year. A factory ship cannot be cheap or easy to replace.
SS claims they are willing to die for the whales, but why they haven't taken an action that would A) ensure real change, at least for a while and B) very likely result in Atago or some other Japanese warship coming down and murdering them all tells us all we need to know about them.
They are not about change, they are about attention. They are sea-SJWs.
I love how choppy the editing is so as not to challenge the Sea Shepherd narrative, including their leader already on the phone selling his story to the media. If some nations navy is attacking you, chances are you are the one that fucked up.
Well yeah. That's what all of these eco-fanatics are about. They're willing to do anything that only involves symbolic sacrifice and feeds their egos. If they were asked to make real sacrifices they'd shit themselves and beg for someone to save them.
Think of the whales!
Whaling is an insignificant source of food anyways.
It's just that the whalers are right wing yakuza connected along with the right wing politicians.
I am waiting for the day someone does take it to the extreme of sinking a factory ship with shell fire. There must be some surplus 3" or 5" deck guns out there from WWII in the Middle East or Asia that can be had for cold hard cash.
Because SS is allowed to get away with all they have without real repercussions, someone will one day buy a ship, mount a deck gun and a pair of 50s on her and really go after whalers or some other group on the high seas.
The whaling fleet will not be prepared for it, that's for sure.
>Killer whales are the most adorable of all the big bad ocean monsters.
Orcas are bro tier.
That Norwegian ship was not fucking around. Putting a shot across the bow is pretty extreme. Also, calling them pirates is amusing as the ships they were bothering probably sent distress signals which means that Norwegian ship was withing every legal right to do what it did. In fact, the Captain of that ship showed restraint.
SS is lucky it wasn't the Russians. They'd have put a WP round into the bridge, a high-ex into the engines and raked the deck with shrapnel shells and been done with them.

If there was nobody around, and these guys came around to harass me, I'd harass them right back with a few warning shots to the hull of their ship.
My point is that it's cool that they're doing as they are, regardless of their cause. If someone else was pro-whaling and wanted to intercept the shepherds and start a pirate war, that would be even better
>implying killing humans is bad
>If someone else was pro-whaling and wanted to intercept the shepherds and start a pirate war, that would be even better
I disagree with whaling, but even more than that I disagree with hippies. What happened to that /k/aptain last week talking about buying a ship? We could name it the /k/raken and cover the deck in trebuchets and launch barrels of lube at sea shepherds.
So what if /k/ were to buy a ship and take them out themselves?
Pretty sure we can crowd fund to buy like an old Soviet submarine or battleship.
I don't think there are any laws on international waters. Although you probably need to resupply at some point.
Unless we were to build some kind of platform on international waters.
I dislike Japs, because of the whole Chinese thing of Warhammer Fantasy Dwarf Grudges, but I'd gladly fight off these militant hippies by their side.
These guys are like Midlife Crisis Nutnfancy/James Jager Anti-government Militia types except they are targeting fisherman And instead of buying more guns than they need they buy boats.
Honestly I don't know why the US CoastGuard or US Navy hasn't brought these guys down.
What if they kill some of the jap fishermen, or kill all of them by sinking the fishing boat?
If a hippie in a prius started slamming into the side of my pick up truck because they think engines over six cylinders consume too much gas and is thus murder of the planet, I'd be more than deeply concerned.
It was fake, side note, not trying to make fun of, but if you guys see videos of their captain...do you guys get the feeling he might have down syndrome...or perhaps he suffered a stroke cause his face and the way he talks is weird.
The difference is that the company would be losing a lot of money and would put a lot of money into getting you arrested/sunk. There's much less outcry about stopping them from killing whales.
I don't get you sometimes /k/, they've straight up basically turned themselves into pirates with sweet paintjobs. Their ideals aside, they ought to be /k/'s wet dream.
Anyway, fuck Japan, its not so much the killing whales it's their bullshit excuses that make me pissed.
Every single person posting in this thread is a massive faggot, including me.
These people have a fucking Navy, they have their own goddamn FLEET of ships. They just laid the hull of ANOTHER ship, to add to their FLEET of ships. There is a man in command of his own private navy. He has under his command his own private sailors. He is carrying out attacks on civilian vessels of the third largest economy on the planet. Seashepard isnt fucking with the Mongolian navy here, they are fucking with the navy of an industrialized, island, nation.
Every single one of you are massive pansy ass cucks. Too scared to go to the gun store to buy a gun because then you'd have to actually, maybe, bathe and put on pants before talking to a human.
Seashepard is out there, operating its own private navy, getting shit done. They might be the most /k/ group in existence, asserting their own ideals through force.
>but mah nuggets, but mah environmentalists are pussies
When you have your own navy you dont need 70 dollar rifles to make your penis feel big, you have a goddamn navy.
Further, if someone likes anything to do with Japanese culture, they are automatically an autistic weeaboo. Until a group decides that Japanese culture is fucking retarded (seriously, you dont need to eat whales or some stupid shit) and does something about it (once again, by raising their own navy) then that group are faggots.
You can either hate Japanese culture and those who worship it, or you can realize that if a culture holds a retarded belief they need to be called out on it.
Can't have it both ways.

their is a lot of people who agree and disagree with the sea Shepherds in the service. The japanese and them both break international maritime laws or fisheries laws. To go after one we would have to go after the other as well. The USCG simply doesn't have the resources or the want to care. The navy has no authority to do either because they are not a threat to American interest in the area.
That was ridiculously satisfying to watch.
A guy I used to go to college with was actually sea shepherds leaders godson or something and even he said the guy was a fucking eejit and twisted everything to make it look like he was a martyr.
>Just minding my own business, simply boarded a merchant vessel to make it the new flagship of my fleet, and those French bastards had the gall to kill two of my men in the process! Acting like a bunch of pirates they were!
>Buy the Typhoon class submarine
>Disenfranchised Soviet submariners join the /k/ountry for the take over of Sealand
>Sea Shepard is now a forward operating base
>We start Diamond Dogs
>Flag is Rhodesia
>International community us simply confused and no one cares all that much
Why does it hurt to live?
>"Pirate whaling activities"
>say the Norwegians are acting like pirates
>proceed to fly a jolly-roger
>I'm not a huge twat, I swear! I'm the victim here.
>can't take the heat
Watching this felt good.
They didn't win the lottery or steal anything. It was a donation from the lottery company itself. They hold an event every year where they donate cash to charities and shit. Apparently the Sea Shepturds were handed 8.3mil this year.
How can /k/ profit from this?
We either get hired as PMC for the whalers or the hippies to fight the other one. One way or another, all I can smell is profit. Haha.
I wonder if itd be possible to join these tree hugging bisexuals and sabotage them from the inside?
I have desirable qualifications.
>but the fact that these people got off their asses and did something about a problem that bothers them is commendable.
Yeah, that's not what this is about. This is about a bunch of dumbass eco hippies trying to get laid and look like hardasses on TV. This is about the legend of Captain Watson. If they truly gave a shit and were as hard core as they claim, there are a dozen other more effective ways they could fuck with the whaling and seal hunting industries.
I personally think that if it's got the dexterity to back up it's intelligence, it shouldn't be killed or eaten.
Elephants and Octopi, to name a few, have that dexterity (trunks and tentacles). Whales and Pigs don't.
Then there's value as companions, but that's very clear-cut.
The ones around my grandpa's place are actually so smart that they know when you're going to get the guns and they fuck off. They also know which trees are safe to sit in while the guns are out.
