About the enviroweenie boat sinking in the Antarctic seas,

Tim Blair has a lot on it(Random had some the other day), and all of it, the actual video and such, says
A: the Sea Shepherd weenies are insane,
B: they either can't handle the damn boat, or are suicidal
C: are liars
D: Combination of the above(my choice).
Among other things, the escort ship that hit them weighs 491 tons and has a top speed of 12 knots; but we're supposed to believe it managed a 'sudden course change and dash' and caught a 13-ton boat that can hit a max 45 knots...

Powered vessel failed to yield right-of-way to a vessel with restricted manouver (which is presumed with any fishing operation.) So yeah, charges might be filed... against the weenies, not the nips.

Bitches create problems and then play the victim of the consequences

You'll also notice, from the wake behind the enviro-boat, that it was still under power when the Japs hit it. They could have moved that thing out of the way without so much as a by-your-leave.
