I should be surprised that it takes something like scientists doing a study for people to believe that maybe torturing and murdering dolphins is cruel.

Having read of the cruel actions of the Japanese against prisoners in WWII and their current cruel actions against whales and dolphins today i believe the Japanese are, and have always been, a cruel people.

what is it going to take for them to stop? I cringe when I hear that Hiroshima was the only way to get the Japanese to surrender. Why doe's it take extreme measures to get through to some people?

How can people call themselves a Human Being if the word Human means to be kind, caring and understanding, but these people who are killing Dolphins are the opposite of that word!

An absolutely barbaric culture without feeling for life and suffering, only their own selfishness and greed. Sickening.
