Do you really think the navy gives a damn ? At one point, in the past, they had actually trained dolphins to ram divers (of the enemy). Long story short, They care not about marine life
This is sad!!!

So, the sociopathic military once again trumps all other life.
"The Navy's need to train battle-ready sailors" - Whaaa? to kill for oil? To kill because other types of governments are different have self-interest which could impinge upon "our" economy?

THe Navy's primary need is to DOWNSIZE. The US spends over 1/2 of all world military budget.
The phrase I'm seeking is

"Get a life."

NOT "Get a death."

Noted, tweeted, FB'ed. I live off the southern Ga. coast.
These beautiful whales migrate through here every year
and are a pleasure to see them when you can. They are
dear, dear mammals & of all the whales have suffered the
most. I have one thing to say to the Navy about this: "NOT
O.K. It was three things.

you can tell a lot about a person or society by the way it treats the beings it doesn't think it has to treat well
if we devalue anything we stand to lose everything
life has value beyond measure
