Whale wars

There is a show on the animal planet called whale wars about a conversation society trying to stop japanese whaling. The japanese claim they only hunt and kill the whales for "scientific experiments". If this was true then why would they need to kill so many everyday? To me it is obvious this is just an excuse to get around the International Whaling Commissions decision to stop commercial whaling in 1982. What do you think and what do you think about the group of people trying to stop the japanese from killing the whales? I personally support them all the way.

I think if enough people protest it and others like the sea shepherd crew keep doing what they are doing it could possibly make a big difference.

they haven't been at all subtle about it either - it's obvious what the whales are being killed for and there's no great effort to hide it.
