Deaf to Death

“In a May 2012 report on sonar use, the navy said acoustic sources and sonar more than 2.5 million times annually exposed marine animals to sounds considered ‘disturbing’, while around 500 times a year marine animals were exposed to sound levels that were considered to result in injury. … Even when stranding does not result, military sonar can cause hearing loss and internal injuries to marine mammals that results in death, even if the animal does not end up on shore.” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/jun/14/stranded-whales-ocean-navy-sonars)

‘National Security’ sounds awfully like ‘Irrational Cruelty’.
