How the Japanese always beat Australians in a game of whale
January 16, 2008

Australia lacks fortitude in international diplomacy as proved by their pitiful non-action over the Australian now held for ransom by a Japanese whaling company.

The Japanese have an extraordinary history of success when negotiating with Australia on anything, be it coal, uranium or beef. And of course whales. Our bureaucrats have not had tempering in the fire of private business, and cave in the moment other countries’ diplomats and negotiators show them a hard side in a game of bluff.

The nature of Japanese bureaucrats is nasty and cruel. Look how they hold out for killing thinking, singing mammals. The only difference between us and whales is that we can’t negotiate the oceans and they can’t negotiate land. Oh, and they don’t like killing each other.
