That's ridiculous Yam, they are not the same thing by any means, that is why the English Dictionary states two different descriptions for the words.
What you are presenting is a fallacy. Defense is good, so lets claim vigilante action is defence. Justice has reasoning behind it, you know the bit I mentioned about innocent until proven guilty? And it consults peers, vigilante action takes action before this process is recognised. In this case, the authority being the International Whaling commission, who brought Japans whailing into political focus has told Watson and his band of pirates to bugger off, so it's not even vigilante action, it's trespassing with intent to harm.
Easy, I can read.
And I read the Wikileaks cable release that I offered you that clearly states that Japan used to take in total what the Sea Shepherd claims to save these days. That is going backwards Yam, and it's pretty simple math.
You "see" what the Whale Wars shows offers you. Not what the real world of reporting, that is where you keep going wrong, and lets face it, you are not going to admit that you have been backing the wrong crowd since day one anymore than the nation of Japan is going to actually bow to a boatload of pirates. Your links consist of nothing more than the Sea Shepherd website, you are biased, and anyone can see too proud to admit you might have been wrong.
Why do you keep making such dumb suggestions? Good God Man! This is like the tenth time you have made some stupid suggestion of me going out and effectively doing what the Sea Shepherd do!! That would make me a hypocrite you realise? That is the job of the police, I have told you I am an electrician. And I sure as hope you do not repair any electrical fault that may happen in your abode do you?
I am not raging, I am meeting your zealous fanboy claims is all, you see it as worse because it is not what you wish to hear. I have pointed out Australias shortcomings in this area more than once. And have stated that our cetacean management is a joke. We still have Dolphins in Captivity and deploy long lines while crying about whales, it's hypocritical, and as such, Australian Politicians are the very LAST people you want advice from on this subject.
And that means????
Nothing has stopped these pirates to date, why do you think common sense would suddenly affect this ridiculous organisation?
I think you need to learn how to word yourself better when dealing with people on other counties. You're continually offensive when on the back foot, which is quite often. And you wonder why you get it in return?
Of course I am unable, I am a bloody electrician, when you say things like that, I can only see you as a red necked gun toting pot head. Nobody else would be so backwards as to make such an inane suggestion. You are the one that proposes Vigilante action, not I remember? How often do you go forcing illegal immigrants out of your country? You should shouldnlt you? For the greater good and all that crap you convince yourself with?
Who do you want me to acknowledge as leader of that band of Pirates? Obama? You?
The Sea Shepherd is a band of self serving asholes who would not listen to anyone other than their own values. Nothing is going to stop them short of the same action that will stop Japan, and as we can see, that is not as easy as just blocking them with a boat, because every year, more whales die thanks to the Sea Shepherd. And now, the Sea Shepherd only saves that which Japans USED to take in total. That's not moving forwards Yam. Despite your red faced ranting in support of an illegal action, things have not got better they have got worse. If I told you to stop donating you would not, so why would these egotistical asholes listen to commons sense and reason? They never have before.
You speak as though we are dealing with regular people, we are not, we are dealing with misguided self indulging pirates who think they are a world authority. Like the Taliban.
