Got any specifics? I don't know of any US military bases near Osaka (closest ones are in suburban Tokyo).

Those crazy Japanese terrorist groups have been firing motors at US troop for 30 years (atleast), they also fire them off at planes at Narita.

I don't think it's such a big deal, that's just the Japanese terrorists way of saying "were still here".

It was actually at Yokota AFB a while ago (where my family happens to be stationed  Insane). I read on yahoo news that the attacks are all symbolic and not actually meant to do any damage or hurt anyone.
