It is hard to be sympathetic to Japan, even though I believe it has a point on allowing some commercial whaling, when if it doesn't get its way, it pouts like a child and does things for spite.

Japan lost in its effort to allow whaling (as was discussed below) and now it will increase its "scientific" harvest. This is in spite of the fact that there is little ot no market for whale meat and lost of it is simply stored or even rumored to be used in pet food.
So the question is, if nobody is eating it, and there is no market for whale meat in Japan, why do they kill them? Science? Then why insist on commercial whaling? To support Norway? That I doubt.
