US military base near Tokyo came under fire

Unidentified persons fired at the US Yokota air base near Tokyo, there were no casualties.


Two home-made rockets exploded near the base on the night of Friday, reported the city police capital of Japan.

According to local residents, they heard explosions around midnight. Japanese law enforcement agencies found in the base of the fragments of improvised shells. "The police found two steel pipes, connecting wires, batteries, etc. Shelling did not cause any damage, shells have not yet been found," - said the representative of the city law enforcement agencies.

The police reported that the discovered pipes were buried in the ground and turned in the direction of the Yokota military air base.

"We confirm that an improvised launch device was detected outside the airbase," the statement of the American command says.

So far no one has claimed responsibility for the incident, however, according to the police, the attack is the work of militants from the ultra-left organization, who demand the withdrawal of American troops from Japan.

Six such incidents have been recorded in the past. So, in April 2003, the American airbase fleet Atsugi in Kanagawa Prefecture was shot at by similar homemade shells. In September 2008, using similar weaponUnidentified attackers attacked a US naval base in Yokosuka. In both cases, no one was hurt.

In Japan, almost 50 thousands of US military personnel and their families are stationed.

        These are not rebels, but brave fighters for the independence of the Japanese islands from a foreign yoke. And so it’s necessary to call them in the press, fighters for independence ... otherwise bandits, bandits .... well done guys. But I had to visit more precisely))))

          Well this is a test step. No need to be so bloodthirsty, everything has its time. It is important to replicate such news in Japan itself.

                "Now we will fly to Sakhalin to storm the paper mill. If it is already on fire, we will use up the ammunition for the population; we must beat the children, since their fathers do not want to surrender, otherwise the war will end and the boy will not be killed."

      And "Little Boy" did not forget, and "Fat Man" did not forget.
      I think that in some ways these "ultras" are right.
      I, in their place, would also be against state bases.
      Anyway, if after WWII-Germany we would open our bases.
      Although the Japanese were sadists and lost the war, all the same, the US bases are very unpleasant for them,
      especially now, not against the backdrop of the rise of national identity in Japan, the formation of the army, of course, such positions will be strengthened.

      Why love amerikosov? Yes, they defended Japan from the USSR and China during the Cold War, but they themselves behave like conquerors. Although every decade the US contingent in Japan is reduced and the bases are closed there are many more.
      It's just that now Japan is not in a position to "throw out" the Americans at once and has made a tactic of gradually squeezing out. And the Americans are leaving.

      This is l-nt Hiro Onoda, who, for 74 years, fought with the Arisaka rifle, waited for the order of his commander, and surrendered to the Philippines ...
      And the second is Yuki Misimo writer, bodybuilder and pedarast (although I do not like such an estate))) but the PERSONALITY is outstanding ....
      He enjoyed popularity on the islands, was a member of the Shield Society, and in principle, he founded (supported at his own expense)) a militarized group with this name — these were practically the beginnings of the Japanese Self-Defense Forces ...
      In the year 70, he and three other comrades-in-arms seized the Commander of the base in Ichigaya and addressed the soldier from the Balcon with an appeal to protect the Emperor from the Conquerors .....
      His authority was high in Japan, portraits were on every corner, and he probably would have succeeded, but a penchant for sodomy))) or something else,
      not allowed to bring the CASE to its logical end))
      As a result, He acted as a Samurai opened his stomach (sepuku) with a knife) Hara hiri and a comrade chopped off his head (and also somehow clumsily, not once, as expected, but several times) .....
      But they buried him with honors as a national Hero ....

    Do you think the USSR is to blame for everything? The Japanese would be happy to break the contract themselves, but they only remembered the Khalkhin Goal, that's why they decided to wait until Stalingrad falls, after which they would certainly attack together with Turkey, and you and I would hardly discuss it here now. So ours died in WWII 40 million, but for some reason you regret the Japanese who were allies of Hitler. And during the nuclear bombing in Hiroshima in the first half of the year alone more than 150000 people died, including women and children, and in Nagasaki more than 75000. Although Japan was actually defeated at this point. So I advise you to better figure out where the barbarians are.

    This is an alarm.
    Thunderstorm of Israeli cities of improvised rockets: - "Kassams" begin to walk around the world.
    Before the shelling of the Japanese-American military base, similar four missiles were launched in Russia in Tatarstan and sent to the Nizhnekamskneftekhim enterprise ...
    Terrorism is taking on new forms.
    Russia must be ready for this challenge and new approaches to counter this evil have been created.

    It must have been ronin.
    Ronin (Jap. Ро, ro: Nin, lit. “wandering waves”, “wanderer”) - a declassified samurai of the feudal period of Japan (1185-1868), who lost the protection of his overlord or failed to save his master from death. The etymology of the term ronin dates back to the periods of Nara and Heian, when he meant servants who fled from the lands of his master. In rare cases - a wanderer who has no alien power over himself, a free warrior.
    Real free Japanese.

    True eyes hurts?

    No, it doesn’t.
    But there is still another truth that you carefully keep silent about - Detachment 731, the massacre in Nanjing, the exploits of the Japs on the territory of the Far Eastern Democratic Republic.
    So what can I say, revenge should be cold.

      Here is the case and we are waiting for revenge. And wait, do not hesitate. We will refund everything with interest.

        And you, take it easy with statements! One young Fuhrer, one small but very proud "Georgia" in 2008 already tasted "revenge with interest"! You can try it too. Just mind then not screaming to the whole world that "a huge evil Russia offends a small but proud ...", if you do it like a samurai - go, quietly stabbed yourself, buried you. Did you agree?

      War crimes, if any, cannot be justified by ANYTHING, no revenge, harsh military realities, etc. This is rather the handwriting of our Western "partners", the Soviet warrior is primarily a liberator!

        The Soviet soldier was slightly better than Hitler's "liberators", and even then not always. With regard to Japan, he certainly was not a liberator.

    The suspects are the national patriots of Nukaffuk, Celsius Lutstse and Nizhuya Popadiro. As one of my comrades would have suggested, the chief bombers of the 1st Imperial Special Horse-Submarine Mechanized Division of missile-counter-battery combat and counter-propaganda. 8- |.

    The Japanese have long had to drive the Americans out of their land. Theoretically and practically, they continue the occupation of Japan!
