    I agree. Greenpeace is an organization funded by vested interest groups to cause mischief with countries with rival business interests. Trying to scale a Russian oil rig is a terrorist act. They are lucky they came out alive from this.

    I don't know about the rival business interests, but Greenpeace members are insufferably self-righteous.

    Only a fool will mess with Russians like this. The green Austrailan jokers should know that they are not dealing with some teddy bear state but an alive polar bear.

    I think only one of them happens to be an Australian resident.

    That 'polar bear' term made me chuckle. :)

    They tried to do a Mavi Marmara on Russians.

    Go their rears handed back.

    Seriously ---> get into Russian territorial waters of Arctic---> Claim this and that, and then expect them to keep quiet?

    Putin is not Sonia Gandhi. :D
