If they do not arrive, Operation Zero Tolerance will be a complete 100% success. If they leave tomorrow they will not be down here until the middle of January so every day they remain in Japan is one day less for their window of operations. The Sam Simon is conducting school tours in Hobart today. The Bob Barker is in Wellington, the Brigitte Bardot is in Auckland and the Steve Irwin and I remain at sea."
