Japen bribing other countries to try to end Whaling ban
June 13, 2010 11:27am CST
It is being reported that Japan is trying to "buy" votes to overturn the ban on whaling. They are offering aid, money, and women to 6 countries in return for their vote on the International Whaling Commission (IWC). http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/environment/article7149091.ece What do you think about this? Should the ban be overturned? Should Japan get into trouble for it's unethical actions?

Wow!! These are real serious charges levied against Japan. If these can be proved, then Japan would be in serious trouble in international forums. But I am bit weary about these kind of exposes as they are more aimed at sensationalism rather than any real good for the society. So I will rather watch how times take this forward. Personally I feel that the whaling ban should stand and hunting of whales should not be done. Cheers! Ram
