|A Sea Shepherd and some Faeroese kids interact|
It would seem that lessons may be learned from the approach taken by Operation Ferocious Isles this year. Without any of the violent confrontations as is usual with SSCS their method was to inform, monitor and report. The result was both governments involved stopped the grinds themselves.
It also seems there was interaction with the Faroese population particularly the young generation so maybe this senseless slaughter will soon be a thing of the past - which is where it belongs together with the Beserkers. At the same time perhaps SSCS has learned that positive results may be achieved without negative violent confrontations. Perhaps the senseless behaviour of 'Wats-his-name' will soon be a thing of the past - which is where it too belongs together with the Berserkers.
From subsequent press releases it would seem that more and more the SSCS is being honest about the fact that such volunteers as 'Cove Guardians' are on their own and pay all expenses themselves. The raging, rampant, violent, tactics of 'Wats-his-name' may no longer reflect the strategy of SSCS. Have the younger generation finally influenced the SSCS policy, will we shall see a fresh approach in dealing with the Japanese Whaling Fleet - if it appears at all this coming season?
There are 800 of our fellow seafarers held captive by pirates ashore and off the coast of Somalia. There are attacks by pirates along the Coast of West Africa the Maritime Authorities and sadly the Maritime Blog Community are doing - NOTHING? NAUTICAL LOG will keep on and on about this issue so get used to it!!
