Hey, I enjoyed McHales Navy!

Yes, you are right. The Ady Gil was almost certainly at fault. I don't know whether they miscalculated or whether it was deliberate. Pretty crazy to risk a collision in those waters either way.

I don't think the Australian government, or the majority of us living here, support the extreme 'the ends justify the means' approach of Sea Shepherd. There are better ways to go about stopping the whaling. Yes, it will take time. But I don't think the Ady Gil type actions make much difference. The story fades from the headlines pretty quickly.
