Two articles in The (Newfoundland) Independent today: (Archive)
    A war that's just, a (sort of) editorial by Ryan Cleary, and
    'Disrespect for this province', comments by Judge Bruce Short

Neither of them is on-line yet (this is Newfoundland eh?) but when they are I will post them, and if not I will type them in.

Iceland Cod Wars:
1893, Danish Government (of Iceland) claims 13 nautical mile (24 km) limit
1899, the British steam trawler Caspian fired upon
1958, First Cod War, claim 12 nautical mile (22.2 km) limit, shots & rammings, Britain yielded
1973, Second Cod War, claim 50 nm (92.6 km) limit, net cuttings & rammings
1975, Third Cod War, claim 200 miles (370 km), net cuttings & rammings, threatened closure of Keflavík NATO base

all settled in Iceland's favour - good on them! why can't Canada do this? It's not a 'can't' it's a 'won't' eh.
