An article appearing in Saturday’s Dallas Morning News reported smoking pot is the highest in Australia than any other nation. Need proof? On this same day news comes out three Australian citizens illegally boarded a Japanese vessel 18 to 20 miles off the Australian coast.

The three are from an Australian group “Forest Rescue.” Here in part is what is written on their website about their mission or goal:
“With an ever evolving unique style of Non-Violent Direct Action, Forest Rescue has been highly instrumental in saving large tracts of south west forests….”
Are they not aware there are no forest 18 to 20 miles off the Australian coast nor are there any on board the Shonan Maru #2? Weed? Pot? Marijuana?
The three who illegally board the Shonan Maru #2 are:
Geoffrey Tuxworth age 47 of Pert, Australia
Simon Peterffy age 44 of Bunbury, Australia
Glen Pendlebury age 27 of Fremantle, Australia
Their faith has not yet been determined by the Japanese authorities. However if the three are fortunate they too like Peter Bethune in 2010 may enjoy a free, all expense paid ocean voyage to Japan – lucky guys. Once in Japan they will be treated to Japanese correctional hospitality and be awarded free room and board – life is grand. These three may not be Waltzing with Matilda for a long time.
Worth noting: These three illegals were aided by Sea Shepherd.
Of course the Australian news media is stirring emotions with their bias headlines on their websites:
“Three Aussies ‘held captive’ on Japanese ship” – Ninemsn
“Activists ‘taken hostage’ by whalers” – The West Australian
"Activists 'taken hostage' by whalers" - au.news.yahoo.com
