BBC News today showed clips from the video made by Aussie Govt ships
tracking the Japanese whaling ships hunting and killing mother and baby
whales under the euphemism of research. In today's world cruelty is hidden
under nice sounding words and those who can see these pictures can judge for
themselves. Western world call themselves civilized and when you see these
pictures one wonders if the aborigines living in remote areas are more
civilized -- they do not resort to mass cruelty and killing and destruction
(all one needs to see what is happening in Iraq and Afghanistan) and self
inflicted wounds -- physical and mental -- the maimed and killed young men
and women coming from war front.
