Comment: Kills more whales, and give us money (Score 1) 360

by Ripping Silk (#33624220) Attached to: Facing Oblivion, Island Nation Makes Big Sacrifice
And it seems no sacrifice is too great as Kiribati is one of the few nations to back the Japanese in their 'research' whaling. You've seen Whales Wars, The Cove. This, an excerpt from Silence is Betrayal at blogspot: On June 13th (2010), the Sunday Times reported they had uncovered proof of Japan bribing nations for votes on ending the commercial whaling moratorium that has been in place for 24 years. Two undercover reporters posed as lobbyists for a fake billionaire who wanted to prevent the moratorium from being overturned. They offered £25m in aid over 10 years to six nations: St Kitts and Nevis, the Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Grenada, Ivory Coast and Guinea, in return for a vote against the whaling quotas at the Morocco meeting. They indicated they were willing to consider the offer.
