Pity they didn't spend the money on rescuing the animals that they left to die-to die of sickness, starvavation and of thirst. They left hundreds of thousands of domestic and farm animals to die alone, in pain, in misery and depravation. Now they have the audacity to spend the money that caring citizens sent for this fisrst disaster on destroying more of the earth's creatures. Shame, shame, shame on Japan. I will NEVER donate to a Japenese disaster fund ever again, no matter what it is.

By this action the Japanese Government has done much to destroy international goodwill towards Japan. I wonder if the Japanese people as a whole know the details of this and what their reactions would be. This decision will cause permanent damage to Japan's reputation and I can only believe that the government is not only arrogant but also extremely stupid. For one wrong thing like whaling it has endangered Japan's world image and business standing. I hope the people will one day kick them out of office.

Sad and shameful. I hope the Japanese government will be reminded that their best resources are the people and that they should also be their number priority--more than economy.

So, the politicians and government officials are going to spend money that was and is sorely needed to help the people and animals who lives were destroyed by the earthquake, tsunami, and the largest nuclear accident since Chernobyl on whaling and security for said whaling fleet....So much for honor in Japanese govt.

I feel sorry for the tsunami and earthquake victims in Japan being ripped off by their government , Iam worried for the health and existance of the whales down around antarctic and in the southern ocean regions affected by this mindless slaughter and I'm totally peed off that some off my dollars that I sent off in good faith to help Japan's disaster victims could be used to commit these murders. VERY,VERY ANGRY with the Japanese government , Never again will I send any sort of money to Japan NEVER!!!!!
