#1 A Captured Klingon Bird of Prey would be more effective

#2 Of course under International Law no Antarctic claims are recognized. So this is little more than a call for piracy on the high seas.

#3 Does Rudd really want to incur the wrath of the Imperial Japanese Navy Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force?

#4 I wonder if Rudd would have been eager to have Australian warships shadow the whalers had they have been, say Russian.

#5 And when a Japanese destroyer starts hanging around giving the RAN boys dirty looks, what are ya gonna do then, Kevni?

#6 If this is what we can expect with regard to Australia reorienting their military priorities then all hope is lost. Whale populations are sufficiently resurgent whereby we could allow the Japanese to harvest them unfetterd for a DECADE without worrying anywhere near as much as we should about using warships to, instead, pound the crap out of the MME (Muslim Middle East).
