This past weekend the self proclaimed protectors of whales once again harassed a Japanese whaling ship. However this time the Sea Shepherd thugs slid from thugs to terrorist. The terrorist aboard the Sea Shepherd pelted the deck of the Japanese ship with a slippery substance in a perceived attempt to cause the Japanese mariners to slip off the deck of their ship and slide off into the sea. The acid is reported to have caused harm to the skin of the Japanese. The people of the Sea Shepherd value the life of a whale more than they value the life of a human.
