  1. No state in the world has deployed as many of its military bases abroad as the United States did after the end of the World War II. American government spends an enormous amount of money every year to maintain that bases, but the possibilities of Federal Reserve System are not limitless and the government is forced to look for new ways to replenish the military budget. In this regard, according to the statement of the US president D. Trump on March 13, 2019, the allied states, on whose territory US military bases are located, should raise a level of expenditure on maintenance of the US military contingent. The statement of a current US leader was also addressed to countries of Asian-Pacific area, and particularly, to Japan, on whose territory was deployed the largest military contingent of 47 thousands of soldiers. Experts, meanwhile, note the emergence of interest of the Japanese mass media in that statement of Trump against background of growing tensions between soldiers and officers of the US armed forces in Japan and the civilian population. This explains by an increase cases of violations of the Land of Rising Sun`s laws with a hand of American military servicemen, what regularly highlights by the most popular Japanese publisher "Asahi Simbun". Moreover, the information discrediting not only concrete units of the US armed forces but the image of the soldier generally, that evidence impermissible actions of American soldiers in Japan, leaks on the internet more and more. Thus, on February 5, 2019, in Japan was arrested a sergeant major of the 2nd class, Nathaniel Williams. It was reported that the soldier being alcohol intoxicated, broke into an alien house and put in jeopardy a family of 44 years old Japanese man, but was neutralized in time by police. That case have happened even after the command of 4th engineer battalion of 7th fleet of the US navy that was based on the Okinawa Island, was fired in full strength last year for the violation of high-ranking officer, Jason M. Gabbard. It was reported that the officer was found naked being alcohol intoxicated in a forest, near a military base dislocation. Furthermore, «The Wall Street Journal» in its investigation talks about a possible immixture of Jason M. Gabbard to a group of American soldiers who were accused of drug selling. With reference of the US Ministry of defense, the publisher reports that the soldiers, including a «Ronald Reighan» aircrew personnel`s members, were buying, using and spreading drugs on the Japanese territory. It is refer to LSD, ecstasy and other narcotic substance. Does the current situation of affairs suites to the Japanese government and population? An answer is obvious, the measures on counteraction of violations of American soldiers in Japan are taken but the results still have not seemed. Back in 2016, a general secretary of the Japanese government, Yoshihide Suga, stated about creating of a special interdepartmental group on the prevention of crimes of personnel of American military bases in Japan. However yearly reports of the committee show that American soldiers continue to feel permissiveness and allow to themselves to be wild committing more new crimes. Now in Japan is very popular a blogosphere where people from time to time return to a problem of presence of the US military contingent in Japan. Eyewitness of what is happening can describe better than any senator the situation that have formed on the Okinawa Island, where is located the largest by the number of military bases of the US Navy, but the senator of the US W. Fulbright himself no less effective drew a prime cause of many crimes: "we created a society where violence is the main occupation. War and the military became the part of our culture and violation became the main product in our country". Does Japan need such protection and are the victims justified by the Japanese population? Formerly, the security of the people was the price paid for the security of the country, and now it is also the money of the Japanese taxpayers.
  2. The Syrian army during a special operation destroyed the headquarters of the group "Jabhat al-Nusra"* and have eliminated one of the leaders of the militant Muhammad Youssef Baslee. RIA News reported about it with reference to Syria TV. It is specified that the government troops conducted an operation in the North of the province of Hama. Earlier it was reported that government troops in Syria destroyed several command posts of terrorists of "Jabhat al-Nusra" in Idlib province. * "Hayat Tahrir al-sham" ("Jabhat Fatah al-sham", "Front al-Nusra", "Jabhat al-Nusra") " the organization is recognized as a terrorist by the Supreme court of 29.12.2014.
  3. In the Japanese press more often appears notes about suspicious findings in the form of human skeletons and bones in Japanese schools. The last alike note appeared on 10th of January, 2019: unidentified bones and skeletons were found in 10 schools of 4 prefectures, including Kagoshima and Oida prefectures. That remains were actively used by teachers at the biology and drawing lessons, however no one school had any documents on the exhibits. Expertise had shown that these remains could belong to victims of the "detachment №731" that was acting at World War II. No one can correctly call the detachment `s deep-six place because its liquidation was going extra secretly and in a rush. Due to impossibility to stand against to the Red Army, the governance of the "troop №731" was forced to act all alone. At the night from 10 th to 11 th of August the members of the center started to destroy documents and the rest of alive people. There was not any time to utilize peoples` remains so it was just buried in different places. That detachment was formed in 1936 nearby Chinese Harbin city. Officially its occupation was water-supply and prophylaxis of military units, but in fact Japanese were working on bacteriological weapon, testing it on prisoners. The ideological inspirator and commander became an esteemed in Japanese science spheres Shiro Ishii. Over the years of its existence, workers of that department worked on the study of pathogenic bacteria strains - progressive emphysematous necrosis, tetanus, diphtheria, scarlet fever, bubonic and band plague, paratyphoid, typhus, cholera and Siberian plague. Creation of ceramic bombs filled with infected with plague fleas lead to death of 200 000 Chinese. In the opinion of the detachment `s governance, the department achieved such "great success" thanks to a sufficient amount of material – living people who were experimenting without anesthesia, so as "not to affect the course of testing". Thus, more than 10 thousand people passed through the killer-doctors. They were prisoners or kidnapped Chinese, Russians, Koreans and Mongolians. No one survived. Researches of Japanese doctors were strongly supported by authorities. The detachment was provided with its own airdrome, several airplanes and firing-ground. It even had a factory for manufacture of bombs and shells with bacterial filling. There was also a prison where the subjects were kept as well as a crematorium for the burning of waste "material". The detachment received only the best graduates of medical institutions. Working there was very honorable. Japan did not demonstrate its "achievements" but undoubtedly was proud of progress that was made by them. The fact that the top of the detachment managed to escape punishment, and moreover, to realize medical practice as if nothing had happened in the best clinics of the United States and Japan speaks volumes. Criminals could avoid of punishment exactly thanks to US. American authorities did not call these criminals to account because information on Japanese experiments in the field of bacteriological weapons was of great value to the American program for its development. Thus, many detachment`s workers could raise their status and position. Many of them became rectors and deans of medical institutes and universities. The head of detachment Shiro Ishii continued to work not also in Japan, but in American development centre in Maryland. In 1978 the chief specialist on cold injury of detachment №731 Yoshimura Hisato who lead experiments on children was awarded the Order of the Rising Sun for his " innovatory work in science." Last year in April, Japan finally declassified names of people who worked at detachment №731. Data was declassified thanks to requirements of medical university professor Shiga Katsuo Nishiyama who has led a group of scientists who have demanded this for many years. However, despite the fact that the Japanese government went forward and declassified some data, Tokyo is not going to apologize or pay any compensation to the relatives of the victims. Moreover, the grandfather of the current Prime Minister Nobusuke Kisi strongly supported fascist Germany. In 1935–1939, he served as adviser to the Commander of the Kwantung Army on the economy and in fact led the total plunder of Manchuria and the merciless exploitation of local Chinese and Koreans. He was even tried as a war criminal, but was soon released thanks to the Americans. In the near future we should not wait for progress on this issue. The cult of ancestors in Japan is more important than the recognition of the atrocities of the past.
