SusyLuvsPaul:I wondered why he wants to tour there, with all these atrocities going on, and his being such a famous advocate for animals. I didn't want to say that here but finally did. Wonder why anyone else hasn't pointed this out?
atrocities are happening EVERYwhere in the world, in every nation, in every home (by funding it and eating of it).
if Sir Paul decided to not tour a particular nation due to 'atrocities' being committed on 'their soil'/in 'their waters', then he also would equally have to not tour ANYWHERE else.
some kill whales. some kill cows. some kill chickens, goats, fish, lamb, sheep, dogs, cats, geese, ducks, et al.
some kill bigger ones, some kill smaller ones.
no nation is innocent.
every single nation he has toured and will tour has atrocities against animals of all types going on.
the evidence - what is on one's supermarket and plate in every nation.
but yes, it would be wonderful if he could openly speak out against what is particularly going on against whales in Japan, since he is already respected and known for such advocacy.
but no, not touring somewhere due to a particular type of atrocity of which various forms everyone else everywhere is guilty of, would be hypocritical.
