OK, not military and a bit tree hugging, but I'm curious. Just watching my Sky+ recording of Whale Wars on Discovery. If you aren't familiar with it then it's basically about a ship full of tree huggers that disrupt the Jap Whaling fleet. Personally I agree with them but that's besides the point. During this weeks episode, the Japs used an LRAD against the hippy's recon heli, obviously having the potential to fcuk up the pilot and cause the very lightweight aircraft to crash into the Antarctic. Surely that must be illegal even in International waters, I thought there were pretty much standard laws against endangering civilian aircraft, regardless of where they are. Just wondered. Not about to POL the outrage R22 or set off with Greenpeace sticker in hand, but I thought it was a bit off, even for the Japs. Fully expect the "you tree hugging cnut" comments but I do actually agree with the Sea Shepherds aims. Personally I'd get rid of the big gay "Steve Irwin" ship and the very flimsy Hughes 300 AC and replace them with at least a Destroyer and an Apache.
