Carte Blanche

A Right Whale mother and Calf

With this most recent  seal of approval, the US Navy is now  free to deafen, maim and murder sea life in both the Atlantic and the Pacific.
They have been given Carte Blanche.
The might of our Military will now be allowed to forge ahead full steam,  knowing well the consequences of their actions and leaving  little doubt that in this country at least,  the hammer will now be allowed to fall on those least able to protest.
The Navy’s war on whales  has been waging for years now and groups from all parts of the world have lent their voices in support for  them and other at-risk sea life,  who are being harmed by these reckless and cruel actions.
Time and time again, US Courts have taken the side of the Navy,  to the great peril of all ocean dwelling animals.
Along our Florida Coast,  the Right Whale  who comes here annually to give birth, is barely hanging on by a  thread and has only a few hundred surviving as of this date, as does their counterpart on the Pacific Coast, the endangered Blue Whale.
So why then are military actions said  to be for protecting the freedoms and liberties of this country being allowed to continue,  when they are causing the deaths of countless  animals that are already verging on extinction?
Perhaps the UN could intercede on  their behalf,  as we have so often done  with countries whose practices, ”  we  have not approved  of, “  and demanded a change in  their chosen course?
Or, it may  be that the time has come for those in charge of American Military war games  to demonstrate a  bit more  compassion, and  humanity,  when dealing with animals?
Could they even possibly  show a bit more respect for the views of those who firmly support the belief that  all life is valuable, not just the two-legged ones?
Carte Blanche does not have any place in the world of endangered animals.
