    If you can't do the time, don't do the crime.

    As much as I despise Putin and his cronies who run that country, I don't feel bad for the Greenpeacers. It's pretty safe to fuck with American, or even Japanese, ships. Did you think you were going to be treated well in Russia? Come on. You're lucky you don't have TB (yet).

    That's how civil disobedience, or whatever they think they're doing, works: you break a law you feel is unjust and take the punishment. Then, hopefully the public sees your punishment as harsh and unfair, and thus join your cause and try to change the law. If you didn't get arrested and treated like shit you'd never gain sympathy with the public.

    BTW, get a load of this:

    "A young Finnish female activist is a vegan and unable to eat prison food, Paikacheva said, adding that prison officials had denied her request for vitamins to be delivered to her. "

    Lmao.

    Dumbasses. What do you expect?

    Everybody has to be put in their place, every now and then.

    Pretty dumb of them to expect that they wouldn't get this kind of treatment. It isn't exactly a secret that Russia doesn't have much of a sense of humor.

    the quotes below are so funny.

    on the second quote, the vegan can eat the prison food (will not kill her) she just doesn't want to.

    maybe next time these clowns will think twice before pissing off Russia.

    They got off lightly. I seem to recall a story about a Russian Navy ship intercepting Somali Pirates a while back. The Pirates were all, "killed while attempting to escape."

    I think getting away with acting aggressive towards the Japanese has given Greenpeace an over estimation of themselves. Russians are different, and for them not to realize this is silly

    ha ha I can imagine them saying, "At least they are not fat, stupid Americans!" Then, Whack! They get hit in the face with a rifle barrel and are put in jail.

    It was even better than that iirc the Russians set the pirates adrift at sea in the middle of nowhere on an inflatable raft with no navigational equipment lol

    I agree with the first part but not the second. If they had any intelligence at all they would know better than to pull a stunt like this with the Russians. I can this this being a relatively safe thing to do with Americans or Europeans, but screwing with the Russians or Chinese is just dumb.

    As for the bit about strong but fair. LOL.
