    Default Isnít this terrorism?

    LONDON Ė Greenpeace said Tuesday that its activists have climbed aboard a Chevron-operated ship to protest drilling operations in the deep waters off Britain's Shetland Islands.
    The environmental group said two members used boats to reach the 228-meter (748 feet) Stena Carron drill ship and attached themselves to the ship's anchor chain. Greenpeace said the ship had been on its way to the Lagavulin oil field, where it was scheduled to begin exploratory drilling.
    "Chevron North Sea is appealing to Greenpeace to immediately stop their actions at the Stena Carron while it is going about its lawful business in Bressay Sound," the U.S.-based oil company said in a statement.
    "This kind of action is foolhardy and demonstrates that Greenpeace is willing to put its volunteers at risk to carry out such reckless publicity stunts, and we are concerned for the safety of those involved."
    Chevron is exploring in waters about 500 meters (1,640 feet) deep. BP's Macondo well, which blew out in the Gulf of Mexico, was about a mile deep.

    I think under our current laws you could be arrested for terrorism for speeding if someone didn't like your bumper stickers.

    Maybe not terrorism but it is piracy on the high seas. What are the good old fashioned laws? Oh yeah, I believe you can shoot pirates attempting to board your ship!

    I thought the law of the high seas was "Dead Men Tell No Tales..."??


    But really, how stupid is approaching and climbing a tanker at sea?? Not to mention affixing yourself to the anchor chain!!?? Why even waste a bullet?

    What a bunch of dummies. Maybe they could go climb aboard the ship with those tools from Whale Wars. I am sure they would have one awesome circle jerk.
