Seeing what you said in your last sentence, I feel I was right on the mark in my previous post.
Obviously I have an agenda. You caught me. I so care whether the Japanese get their whales or the Keystone Kops of the Sea stop them. Judging by the volume of my posts in this thread , I must be trying to influence someone.
I never suggested that you need to be in combat to courage or a big set. It was you who seemed to imply that this fearless and courageous crew with Pete especially are without peer. I just pointed out that there are plenty of people in the world that are just as if not more courageous. Hell, Bear Grylls has a bigger set than these guys, but I guess your now going to tell me he is trained for this.
Anyway, I am out. Good luck persuading the AVSers to jump on board with your position and start sending in those donations.
