Sea Shepherd / Ady Gil - the continuum

The damaged Ady Gil was being towed by a cable attached to a new Sea Shepherd ship, the Bob Barker registered in New Zealand. Sea Shepherd claims the cable snapped and the Ady Gil sunk. Huh? Videos clearly show the Ady Gil floating at sea, not sunk.

The Ady Gil was successful in waking up the Japanese Samurai while saying sayonara. If the Shonan Maru did deliberately ram into the Ady Gil (all though video demonstrates otherwise) it was in their right to do so as it would have been a defensive maneuver.
The Ady Gil kept criss-crossing the bow of the ship, kept aiming their green laser at the Japanese mariners (can cause blindness either temporary or permanent). Then the crew of the Ady Gil fired arrows at the Japanese ship. Do they now think they are Robin Hood in Sherwood Forest? You can say criss-crossing, acid bottles thrown on deck, and the green laser are not lethal. But can you say being on the business end of a projected arrow is not lethal?

So with this deadly escalation by the children of Sea Shepherd, perhaps the Japanese had no choice but to defend themselves and ram into the bat boat thus eliminating this lethal weapon created by Sea Shepherd.

While Sea Shepherd is expending all these resources to this one lone non-whaling Japanese ship, the rest of the Japanese whaling fleet is harpooning one whale after another. So after creating all this dramatic video for Whale Wars, how many whales did they save? Zero! Now ask how much will their sought after donations increase? This past season Sea Shepherd brought in 8 million dollars, how much this season?

You know, Commodore, all posturing aside, any rational person has to ask himself (or herself) one glaring question...

How does a state of the art power trimaran, capable of 40 knots get run down by an ancient research ship whose maximum speed is 12 knots?

Inquiring minds want to know!

If you were sitting on a really really fast parked motorcycle at the side of the road and I was barreling towards you in a big clumsy Mac truck, I bet you anything I could run you over.

George J said...

I'll bet you couldn't, because I'd be smart enough to stay the hell out of your way!

Please come to the Ishikawa Prefecture Kanazawa city in my hometown if you are good. I will always welcome it.

Father Texas,nice to meet you.
I am a junior high school student in Japan.
I was sincerely impressed to see the insistence with your you tube.
Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is a terrorist group.
They are professional groups that collect the capitals from the enterprise in the excuse as for the environmental protection. Japanese Government should deal strongly with them more.

I also am doing the blog. This topic was made an article.

Hereafter, it will look forward to your comment.

Tony, the arrow you show is not an arrow...i found a video made by the japanese whalers showing the same scene but they called it a color ball. if you watch it you will see it is a ball shape until the camera goes out of focus. thats the bit you show. please watch: watch?v=22rOVoFjeDE&feature=re lated i trust you will correct this mistake!? A color ball in japanese is like a paintball used at banks etc.

My name is Zero. I am an Japanease blogger.

I am enjoying your short movie, especially translated one.

I had written a novel of the "Ady Gil" for the soul of the ship.

Because the ship "Ady Gil" is intresting technically and dramatically.

Novel "I am a speedboat."

the Ady Gil RIP.
