In what is the most obvious result of the fools deal, Korea has now said it would like to resume whaling if Japan is given the go ahead to expand its Northern Pacific kill operations. (1) (2) Word is he has also awaken the slumbering Russian whaling industry.
I doubt this is what Obama had in mind.
I doubt this is what Japanese tax payers had in mind for their hard earned funds either.
Life is not fair, but it is a shame that the obselete cruelty of whaling lives on still. There is no longer an urgent need for any whale product. The cost is too high.
