Well MrDucky, there is a lot of illegal whale hunting going on besides it and surely forbidding whale hunting world-wide would make it a lot easier to get rid of whale hunting in total?
Also, I couldn't give a flying buck about the life of a fish, but I do think keeping all species alive is of vital importance for the continuation of life on earth.
what reason is there to make whale hunting world wide illegal?
are not endangered in ANY way.
the whole "OMG WHALES ARE ENDANGERED" is just nomsense. NOMSENSE. when you factor in that minkes make up like 95%+ of the catch and the rest is also specified as alright by the IWC the whole "whales are endangered" nomsense is nomsense.
continuation of life on earth? give more thought for the fish who are getting OVER fished as opposed to the minkes where are culling doesnt really affect their population.
there is MORE overfishing going on.
anyone who wants to stop japan whaling but not the rest of the world for fishing is either:
a. ignorant of the facts
b. a hypocrite.
lucky most fall under a.
people just like whales because apparently they are intelligent, unfortunately they have never been to a farm and noted that a pig's intelligence is on par with a dog's intelligence. its cause they are cute and friendly. >.>
oh btw, japan's economy is in 3 areas, the rest is neglible
1. technology (from new TVs to building giant robots capable of destroying the world)
2. anime (
3. creepy, weird and questionable stuff. (such as building godzilla and the strange stuff in their vending machines)
whale hunting has no real impact on Japan's economy. but it does have jobs and it has no reason to be outlawed.
