Japan issues warning to Australia on whaling 'interference'
Source: ABC News

Japan says it will not accept Australian interference in its scientific whaling program in the Southern Ocean.

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd says the Australian Government will reveal details next week on how it plans to approach this year's hunt by Japan's whalers.

Japan's fisheries minister says Japan will not tolerate interference, because its whaling is approved under international treaties.

During the election campaign, Mr Rudd said the Navy would be sent to the Southern Ocean to monitor Japan's fleet.

6. LOL
That would get a wave of cheap consumer crap embargoed for shipment to Aus

China would then step up to the plate and supply the Christmas ornaments, trivets and cheap watches.

10. That's some pretty important scientific research, isn't it?
Most scientists don't take such a belligerent stance about their research.

4. Hope Prime MInister Kevin Rudd will be equal to this challenge.
It would be criminal to allow these criminals, like the Republican Party, to find loopholes through which they can do deadly, destructive things which cannot be reversed.

7. Australia can be proud of it's new government.
Finally some people in power who genuinely want to do something good. The Japanese whaling science program is a hoax and needs to be highlighted as such.
