    so peru, a 3rd world country par excellence is investigating the death of 500 sea lions...
    while you isleters did not do a shite with the death of + 5 million penguins.
    you are a 4th world colony indeed.

    “At least 100,000 penguins died from starvation during May 2002 in the Falkland Islands.”

    “The same thing occurred in 1986, when over a million Rockhopper penguins starved to death in exactly the same manner.”

    “The Falklands's response was to try and stop our work by false arrests, intimidation, withdrawal of work permits and death threats. The Falkland Islands Government were taken to the Supreme Court and found guilty of human rights abuse which the judge described as ”morally and constitutionally indefensible”.

    Whatever the reasons for the deaths of these fine creatures,
    they need to find it and stop it if they can.

    More 'what-aboutery' from paul-carrion. No links as usual.
    Sad effort addressed to no-one in particular, just more of his bile-spewing nonsense. The kid needs a doctor.
    I am glad Peru is investigating the situation.
    So far the government report claims 'natural causes'. Could they be more specific? What natural causes exactly?
    Environmental group Orca blamed the deaths on the noise and pressure waves caused by explosions it linked to oil exploration in the area.

    So which is it? Anybody have further info?
    I think the investigations should continue.

    Agreed, rather than play the blame game like [1] and [2]

    the fact is i dont like the typical fat, ugly, hairy english / english wannabe woman.
    so, if you wanna get laid, try with one of these 4th class isleters, you fatty.
    they will be happy (or maybe they prefer sheep?) to be on your list.

    Dear Paulie.
    I have seen La.Baronesa.Del.Hielo on other threads. I don't think she has a sexual interest in you. I think she will take your soul in the night. Apparently she can reach out beyond her gaol-cell into the hearts and minds of other people.
    Personally I think it is all bullshit, but I know what you superstitious folk are like!
    So, beware!
