Oh, good. Just when the Senkaku-Diaoyu Island issue wasn’t complicated enough, enter the environmental flotilla Sea Shepherd – on the side of the Chinese.

In their own words…

In light of the ongoing slaughter of dolphins in Taiji, Japan and the continued killing of whales by Japan in the Southern Ocean, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society wishes to support Chinese efforts to assert sovereignty over the islands known as the Diaoyu Islands by China and the Tiaoyu Islands by Taiwan.
