IWC 2006: Kiribati maintains sustainable-use stance

Well done Kiribati:

Kiribati Fisheries Minister Tetabo Nakara confirmed Senator Campbell's reading of his country's position.

"We support scientific whaling to continue," Mr Nakara said.

"We have a neutral position on the moratorium on the commercial whaling."

Mr Nakara denied Kiribati was receiving financial aid from Japan in return for its vote.

"Kiribati paid its contribution to the IWC and we will continue to pay the fares of our participation," he said.

It's amazing people actually donate money to that clown. He raves like any old moron on an Internet forum. Perhaps we can all make a living that way?

Ignoring his ranting nonsense, he also makes completely misinformed statements.

"Perhaps this approach to science by Japan is the real reason that no Japanese scientist has ever won a Nobel Prize", he postures.

In fact, two Japanese scientists won Nobel Prizes in a single year:

Ridiculing madmen such as Paul Watson is apparently the only way to deal with them.
 
The crazy captain makes us laugh.

´╝×Greenpeace is now refusing to acknowledge the existence of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and now have a policy to refuse to
acknowledge any correspondence or communication from Sea Shepherd.

This comment gives me a lot of fun to see the fighting among the terrorists as well as to see how low their IQ level,though I am not sure which is smarter, GP or SSCS.

Probably GP might be reluctant to be regarded as SSCS of crazy animals.GP thinks themselves honest-this also bursts laugh.

I do hope the fighting will continue until both of them are exterminated with each other.

> This comment gives me a lot of fun to see the fighting among the terrorists

Indeed. These groups really need to be working together, as Sea Shepherd suggests, if they are to have any chance of success in their goals.

Also, anti-whaling governments seem terribly disorganized this year. Only 17 and 12 nations participated in protests against whaling by Japan and Norway, and only just yesterday did Finland and Sweden wake up and realise that they had missed the boat.

Quite a shambles. All of this on top of Greenpeace's failure to "save" a single whale in the Antarctic this year.
 
Perhaps that is how strongly people feel that their government has let them down....

I for one have this feeling and am doing my best to address it. Yes I support Seashepherd and if Paul Watson is a clown you could at least post a page that works.

Amazing how many awards clowns get.

Have you noticed that successful people tend to be bullies, arrogant and in many cases unpleasant !

You on the oher hand are so polite and neautral pushing your government to corrupt others who aspire to many Japanese goods.

Making customers of developing nations while you sip your saki and eat our tuna, sorry I will play my part to change this...

Martin,

Firstly, I want to suggest to you that you calm down, take a sip of water, and relax before you go hitting the "Publish your comment" button.

Please do not come here and mindless hurl insult at me, or cast aspertions on Nobel Prize winners.

You are of course welcome to do so, but you should be aware that it is not a good look.

> Perhaps that is how strongly people feel that their government has let them down....

I feel that my government has let my country of New Zealand down.

That doesn't mean that I will support racist, terrorist organizations because of it.

It's sad if it is true that you feel differently.

> I for one have this feeling and am doing my best to address it.

Your country is to be commended for it's principled stance on the issue of sustainable use, and standing firm against the powerful NGO groups from wealthy western nations.

I'd be proud if my country adopted your country's position on this issue.

> Yes I support Seashepherd

I see. Thanks for being upfront about it.

> You on the oher hand are so polite and neautral pushing your government to corrupt others who aspire to many Japanese goods.

Perhaps there is not much information about Japan in Antigua and Barbuda, but I should inform you that "David" is not a name you will find belonging to any Japanese citizen.

Finally, if you want to focus on your ardent belief that your country sells it's vote at the IWC to the highest bidder, I suggest you start your own blog on blogger.com to write about it. I don't think you'll find many other Antigua & Barbudans reading the comments section here on my blog.
