Beached

Japan's hopes to buy up the IWC seem to have run aground for the time being at least. I have to say I have little sympathy for either side in this debate. On the one hand, we have the sentimentalism and symbolism of the anti-whalers, and on the other, the pork-barrel politics of a few local interests and nationalist flag-wavers.

This blogger seems to have a particular interest (and knowledge).
