I cant belive Discovery actually airs it. They are no more than Eco-Terrorists. These are the same people that would love to see our boats put away for good, and have our hunting and fishing rights revoked. They are playing on the emotions of people to support thier cause. I feel that they are going to get hurt by the captian that takes too many dangerous chances with the crew. It does suck that Japan is whaling under false pretenses, but pushing our beliefs on their culture is not right. They are hunting a sustainable food source for their people, I just wish they would do it in their own waters and drop out of the Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources like Norway instead of hiding it in the Marine Research they claim to do.

Some of it is pretty ridiculous - throwing the bottles by hand, I mean, come on. Head on over to any boat store and buy a friggin' water balloon launcher - problem solved. And throwing a line in the water to tangle the props on 200 ft ship A steel cable, maybe, but a nylon line? I don't think so...
I think you missed the strength of that line... "It was stronger than steel"....even my wife knew it wouldn't work before they tried it...

The French! LMAO I now watch to see what stupidity comes next from these guys. The captain says he started Green Peace then was kicked out due to questionable tactics... His tactics are like Pakistanis throwing rocks at tanks. They don't work. No wonder he was kicked out. The Japs are laughing at them over sake and whale sushi.

If I were Steve Irwins widow I would have his name removed from the good ship LOLLIPOP.

Their efforts would be better suited to try and change the law that allows for this instead of the crap they do. It is only a matter of time before one of those guys either gets hurt or killed.

There are dozens of fishing shows on TV every Sunday morning. I don't see any Bass, Walley or Trout wars. Heck look at the popularity of big game fishing too. I'm not saying the whales deserve to die, but why is it worse than all the other things we eat.
