I’m not really sure how to interpret this story.
AUSTRALIAN Federal Police, who yesterday raided the anti-whaling ship the Steve Irwin, did so at the request of pro-whaling Japanese authorities.
Is this a move against the right of ship owners to bear arm? Is it an anti-piracy measure? Is it one government defending another? Is it an amusing piece of symbolic disappointment for the green left who must now watch on as the Rudd government demonstrates that it is less sympathetic to the anti-whalers than the Howard government? There are too many ways to spin this. You tell me.
