25. In the example given, it doesn't work that way.
The IWC has no enforcement of anything, they don't set a quota. The IWC could say that Japanese whalers have to wear bunny suits while they did their "research" and it wouldn't mean anything. In the example, I'd be glad the IWC made that baby step as worthless as it were, at least recognizing the need, but I'd still decry them for violating what they were framed to allegedly be doing. BUT, I have a luxury. The IWC can fart rainbows, Sea Shepherd will still be there to ruin Japan's hunt.

I digress. Thing is, the IWC is there to do a job. To DEVELOP the whaling industry. It's like too many other animal "conservation" groups. Grow the herd to the point they can be harvested by people. It's profit, and that's why it will never be about doing what's appropriate. They're not charged with it. Congress seems oddly too much like the IWC, come to think of it.
