I was flipping though channels a moment ago and, noticing that Whale Wars is on, felt a need to comment.
First I must say that I LOVE whales and detest the hunting of them. That said, I REFUSE to watch the show Whale Wars.
Although I do applaud their dedication to the protection of whales I can not condone their terroristic methods. Yes, I do consider them to be terrorists. They put lives on the line, they terrorize people who are only trying to do their jobs and make a living. Appauling as the hunting of whales may be to me it is a part of their culture, their way of life, and a legal means to provide for their families.
I'd like to see this show, which IMO glorifies their terroristic methods, removed from the airways. There are better ways [although they may be slower/ less effective/ and certainly not as exciting for TV] to go about stopping or limiting the hunting of these magnificent creatures without becoming terrorists.
I despise terrorists regardless their goals, regardless if they are from my country or not, because it's their means and methods that are WRONG. How can I, in good conscience, say this particular terrorism is ok merely because I approve the goal and then despise other terrorists who believe what they are doing is okay because their goals are "good" for their beliefs/people?
