Yes, good news. It's a Japanese custom to never say "no". I hope this case is an exception.

the clash over Japanese culling has overtones of a clash between Japanese and Western cultures.

++++++++++ Oh, FINE! Please spare us the political correctness and say it outright....the Japanese attitudes about eating fish and marine mammals will devastate populations! THIS MUST STOP!

Stop the bloody slaughter of whales and dolphins. Most people oppose this.

Way to go Nonwhalers! I attribute a lot to Paul Watson and his people in the Southern Ocean.

oriental countries don't spare the life of anything that moves or lives, that is their stupid tradition, sooner than later all this animals are going to be extinct due to hunting, and not protecting the oceans, or any wildlife, just because they are greedy, start respecting life, and caring for the planet, otherwise what are we going to see reproduce when their is anything else left to enjoy.

DO people realize that the hard earned money sent for disaster relief to Japan in part is used to finance these hunts?????? A major petition could be introduced demanding that they take that money back out of the whaling endeavors
