    Much easier to just sink the poachers. When you are down near Antartica, who's going to see?
    Sink a dozen boats and they will learn to stop going there.

    Just one question. Where is Sea Shepherd's legal authority?

    @3. Don't worry about your age. Fish need food.

    I have to say it's an outright shame to see these magnificent creatures slaughtered. Anyone who has seen them eye to eye knows exactly what I mean. What they are trying to accomplish is noble....but it still remains that they are not legally empowered to do so making them nothing more than pirate/terrorists.

    @5 Did you even read the article?
    Do you even know what a Patagonian toothfish looks like?
    I guess anything looks noble and attractive when you are from the FI.

    @2 Who gave the American colonies the authority start the revolutionary war against King Charles? It was just the RIGHT thing to do.

    Sea Shepard AUSTRALIA is based in AUSTRALIA.

    I believe the Banzare Bank may also be within Australia's Antartic Territory's EEZ.

    As for being pirates or terrorists, chasing someone who is breaking the law and removing illegal devices from an area is no more a terorists or pirate than someone giving chase to a mugger, rapist or burglar.

    Whether they were in Australia's EEZ or international waters, the area is covered by CCAMLR, so Sea Shepard is only doing its civic duty.

    I was not commenting on the article but a general statement of Sea Shepard. Being that that must be an RG because you tossed an insult as that is all RG trolls know or capable of. I suggest your owner use a bidet as we all know a klingon is not but a leftover shitball on some hairy asshole. And your's is....Kissitoff, Kirchner, Tinman? All big asshole with lots of klingons.

    Go play with someone big assed chorizo. If you want to really know where I am from and to prove me.....or shut the fuck up you piece of shit argentine troll. But what you do a klingon on someones hairy asshole.

    You any an embarrassment to real working Argentines. May You die a miserable death with the rest of you worthless peronistas.

    Klingon is an Argentine who lived in New Zealand but..... get this.... returned to live in the slums back home.

    Either couldn't hack it in a country that works without corruption or got kicked out.

    Nothing like life in Villa 31. Always a grand sight on the way to Newbery airport. Now the residents try to stop the cars on the highway there. It's an elevated highway.

    Klingon.....what a name. Perhaps it's appropo. A leftover shitball from sloppy hygiene.
