The United States government currently maintains a world-wide network of some 1000 military bases and installations, with 23 of them being in Japan.

The US has been an occupying force in Japan since world war 2 and like many places where western military bases have been established, their goals there are not humanitarian, regardless of what the propaganda says.

The most populated US military base in Japan is Okinawa, and recently that has become the site of various protests over dangerous weapons testing and attacks on a local women and children.

According to the Associated Press:

“A U.S. airman is suspected of assaulting a young boy Friday on the southern Japanese island of Okinawa, authorities said.

The incident comes just two weeks after a curfew was imposed on all 52,000 U.S. troops in Japan after the arrest of two Navy sailors for allegedly raping a local woman.

Authorities on Okinawa said the 24-year-old airman was suspected of entering an apartment and punching the 13-year-old boy before breaking a TV set and trying to escape through a third-floor window.

The airman — whose name has not been released — fell and was taken to a military hospital.”

This is far from a random occurrence or an isolated incident, in the past similar attacks have happened at this same military base, including another rape in 1995.

Sadly the psychology of an occupying force is one of domination, despite the public relations campaigns that present western occupation as some sort of twisted charity.

Earlier this week thousands of people protested the attacks with many demanding the total removal of US military bases.

Most mainstream sources are downplaying this issue and overlooking the fundamental occupation that exists in many countries where western forces have established military bases.
