Two explosions went off near the US Yokota Base in western Tokyo last night. Police believe the attacks may have been extreme leftist groups.
The Japan Times reported:

Two explosions were heard Thursday night near the U.S. Yokota base in western Tokyo, prompting police to set up a special investigative team.

The Metropolitan Police Department’s Public Security Bureau suspects that the incident was an attack by extremists, officials said Friday, though no damage to the base was confirmed.

The incident happened on a field near the base a little after 11:30 p.m. Nearby residents called the police, reporting what sounded like guns being fired.

Police officers discovered two steel pipes, with wire leads attached, in a field in the Nishisuna district in Tachikawa, about 500 meters southeast of the base. The police suspect that two projectiles were fired from the pipes, both of which were found pointing at the base…

…There have been no claims of responsibility, but police believe it may have been a guerrilla attack by extreme leftists, Jiji Press and other media said.

Broadcaster NTV reported police were concentrating their investigations on the Revolutionary Labourers’ Association Anti-Majority Faction because the incident came just hours after they arrested a top-ranking member on Thursday.

Japanese officials reported the remnants of IED’s in the area near the base.

It could be Islamic as well..
GOP House members came to Paul Ryan to be Speaker. He didn't come to them. And he was everybody's conservative darling back in 2012. So unless 1 of the remaining 240 wants to step up & do a better job in budgeting & negotiations & herding the party cats, then everybody please STFU. You go to battle with the army you have, not the one you want but don't have.

Not in Japan.

More likely the report is accurate. The left in Japan is both very anti American and very isolationist.
