Who Is The Real Terrorist?

Japan considers Greenpeace 'terrorists' and 'pirates'; Japan has gone as far as to refuse assistance from a Greenpeace vessel to tow its stricken whaling ship out of Antarctic waters. In actual fact - who is the terrorist?

Under the pretext and guise of 'scientific research', Japan continues its indiscriminate slaughter of hundreds of whales every year; Why? The bottom line is that: Japan hunts whales mainly for commercial reasons and not 'scientific research' as they would like us all to believe. And many Japanese simply have a taste for whale meat. And what a cruel way to fulfill one's culinary taste!
"The fate of the world's whales hangs in jeopardy. By way of its vote buying campaign, Japan could very well control the simple-majority vote of this year's International Whaling Commission (IWC) meeting, targeting small island nations in the Pacific and Caribbean with foreign aid for pro-whaling votes. If these countries vote with Japan it will be a blow to the integrity of the IWC and to the survival of whales around the world. For the first time since the 1970's the IWC could be in the hands of whalers."
