The Whale Wars are only 48 hours away!
Founder of the Sea Shepherd, Paul Watson, posted on Facebook:
"Apparently the Nisshin Maru has taken only half it’s fuel with the rest to be loaded tomorrow. Talk in the town is that they will leave tomorrow but certainly within 48 hours.
According to reliable reports out of Tokyo there will be armed Japanese Coast Guard officers on the ships. As Sherlock Holmes once said to Dr. Watson, "the game is afoot." All three Sea Shepherd ships are primed and ready for departure."
Apparently, the Japanese have spent $28 MILLION to increase the security of their whale murdering fleet.
There may even be a single boat with the fleet designed solely as security.
Let's hope the Sea Shepard has some tricks up its sleeves.
Or at least a cannon on its bow. LOLz!
