[IB Publisher's note: As if the Japanese pouring of hundreds of tons of radioactive water everyday into the Pacific is not enough, RimPac, led by the US Navy is set to add tons of depleted uranium munitions this coming summer into the ocean during a practice war against the ocean. It will include the destruction of whales and other mega fauna through explosives and brain shattering sonar signals.]

Three China People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) ships arrived in Hawaii last week to join the US Navy in a search-and-rescue exercise, according to Associated Press. The PLAN guided missile destroyer Qingdao, a frigate and a supply ship took part in exercises Monday with the USS Lake Erie off Waikiki in order to foster operational familiarity between the two navies, according to the report. PLAN ships last visited the U.S. in 2006, when they stopped in Pearl Harbor and San Diego for communications drills and search-and-rescue exercises, while the two nations last held a joint drill in 2012 during an anti-piracy exercise off Somalia, the report notes.

Meanwhile, Admiral Wu Shengli, commander of the PLAN, is in San Diego to visit USN Third Fleet headquarters and meet with USN Chief of Operations, Admiral Jonathan Greenert, according to another AP report. China will participate for the first time in the Rim of the Pacific exercise off Hawaii in 2014, the world’s largest maritime exercise.
