MOSCOW, September 3. /TASS/. Russia’s Soyuz TMA-18M spacecraft that is on a journey to the International Space Station (ISS) has made a manoeuvre to avoid a collision with a fragment of a Japanese carrier rocket, Russia’s Federal Space Agency Roscosmos told TASS on Thursday.
"A fragment of the spent third stage of a Japanese carrier rocket, launched in 1989, happened to be on the spacecraft’s flight path. Ballisticians of the Russian mission control and their American colleagues worked jointly to prevent a collision," Roscosmos said.
Funny how Japan's government was warning its people to stay indoors when Mir was being deorbited. As if there was any chance of any
debris landing on Japan. But the clowns couldn't miss the chance to take a piss on Russia. But here we have a real hazard left behind
by mighty, pure and superior Japan.
How do you know there wasn't?
I don't recall Japan claiming itself to be pure and superior. They are quite humble as far as nations go.
Meanwhile the Japanese still refuse to recognize the Rape of Nanking, or any of the atrocities committed by their fascists...in fact Japanese culture has brainwashed the average Japanese citizen to generally believe the Imperial Japanese fascists of the WW2 era were "victims", and all the rape, murder, genocide were "myths" perpetuated by people who wanted to "persecute" Imperial Japan. Why do you think the Japanese still refuse to accept that they lost the Kurille Island chain? Why does Japan have territorial disputes with Russia, China, Taiwan, and South Korea? Because they believe all those islands belonged to Imperial Japan...the "victims" of WW2.
Germans, and Italians have been stereotyped as being "arrogant", however at least they recognize their fascists as evil and genocidal, meanwhile Prime Minister Shinzo Abe still attends Shinto Shrines dedicated to WW2 era Japanese fascists to pay his respects to "fallen heroes" and "victims"...now that's arrogance!
