They have been going on for decades. They are 'polite terrorists'. They are only called terrorists by the equally polite general Japanese public. Their rockets and bombs are LAME. Seriously lame. The rocket launchers are usually not much bigger than an Estes model rocket kit and the 'terrorists' usually make statement that they could have injured people and/or property but didn't because they just want attention to _____ (fill in with their 'cause' of the day).
REAL terrorists, would be sure to hit when/where the most people would die and when/where they could do the most damage.
These aren't real terrorists and there is no news story here.
Edited to add - official USRJ status at Camp Zama (my old unit) - NORMAL.
