“In warfare, ramming is a technique that was used in air, sea and land combat. The term originated from battering ram, a siege weapon used to bring down fortifications by hitting it with the force of the ram’s momentum….”
No matter how many times I watch this video, I get the same result. The front of the Sea Shepherd boat hits the SIDE of the Japanese boat. If the Sea Shepherd was rammed, wouldn’t it have been the other way around?
Of note as well, it would appear that the Japanese vessels attempts to avoid collision at the last moment, trying to turn away. At all times though the key is: the Japanese vessel is IN FRONT of the Sea Shepherd. If the Japanese were trying to ram the Sea Shepherd vessel, wouldn’t they have been behind, and not side on?
