Those who side with Japan's whalers on this matter, who refuse to acknowledge that Japan is not doing "research", that they are hunting even though the whale flesh they already have sits unwanted in freezers, they are a black eye to their country. The rest of the world has grown enough to know that whales and dolphins should be left to live their long lives in peace. This is not tradition. It's stubborn profiteering, and the Japanese people are the ones paying for all the stipends the government gives those few whalers. When will you be honest and stand up against those few in Japan who are bringing shame upon your people?

The world should not allow this. Japan is one small nation, and her decisions threaten the whole world. Abe, control yourself, or you will force the world to control you.

Perhaps Japan should focus on Japan, and taking care of her internal problems. That dolphins and other cetaceans continue to be slaughtered in Taiji even though their flesh is toxic, that the few Japanese whalers are out there making Japan look bad when there isn't even a market for whale flesh, to name just a couple examples. Reining in nuclear energy so that the nation does not suffer any further radiation... Much to do at home.
