Default Barbaric Danes ?

Saw a program the other night with coverage from the Faroes, part of Denmark where the inhabitants carry out mass killings of Pilot whales with the full support of the Danish navy and police. They have instigated laws whereby it is an offence NOT to to help with this so called Grind, punishable with up to 2 years in prison. A couple of women have just been arrested for not reporting the arrival of the whales in a bay so that they could be culled. Even children take part in this massacre and one was shown holding a live baby whale that had been cut out of its mother.

Ah well, in Australia they cull kangaroos, and rabbits. Are whales any cuter than rabbits?

Better than invading foreign countries and executing their leaders.

Well Scot, that must be numbered among the dumbest of your 4,900 odd posts.

Well, I don't think it's a dumb post. Scot reckons that dead baby whales are small beer when compared with the dead baby humans killed in large numbers in foreign wars managed by the West's political leaders. I'm with him on that.

Regrettably, Denmark as a member-state of NATO is responsible for killing baby humans as well as baby whales.

Blaklladder probably thinks killing humans in Iraq and Libya can be overlooked, and the important thing is to stop the Faroese hunting whales. And he calls me dumb ?

So killing whales is better than the D-Day landings, the invasion of fortress Europe and the removal of the Nazi hierarchy? Dumb? Who?

Blakladder, like so many. is convinced that all of World History revolves around Dunkirk and D-Day.


I was referring to more recent events.


Perhaps we could use trident to persuade the Danes and the Faroese to behave better ?

The simple answer to Scot's original posting is: how on earth is it relevant? It's simply not a valid comparison. Moreover, for someone who only recently was praising the virtues of King Charles XII of Sweden (a man responsible for the total destruction of the Swedish army and the plunging of Sweden into 100 years of poverty), Scot has become amazingly pacific all at once...

Thats a way of life for some, not all of the Danes, not something I agree with but sadly it happens, the Japanese do a similar thing with the whales and theirs is a year round cull.
Again not something I agree with but, hunting is a big way of life here, I live in the country and certain months of the year they hunt for different things (you have to have a permit of course) definetly not something I'm comfortable with but for those avid fans of hunting you won't change their minds

Yemenis are quite abhorrent however with their penchant for Locusts. the suffering of these poor creatures has to be seen to be believed. Our guard used to tear off their rear linbs and wings without anaesthetic so that while he was working they could not escape their eventual fate. Supper!!
