Russian ships arriving in China for naval war game

April 22, 2012BEIJINGThe Russian guided-missile cruiser Varyag arrived at an east Chinese naval base Saturday ahead of a planned joint exercise with the Chinese navy, news agency Xinhua reported. The large-scale war game, the navies’ first bilateral drill, is scheduled Sunday through Friday off the resort city of Qingdao in the Yellow Sea, Xinhua said. Russia also sent from Vladivostok three Udaloy class destroyers and three support ships, said Russian news agency Ria Novosti. China will use 16 ships, including destroyers, frigates and two submarines, in the drill called Maritime Cooperation-2012, Ria Novosti said. A Chinese aircraft carrier may also participate, the International Business Times said. “The exercises will involve several simulated missions, including the rescue of a hijacked ship, the escort of a commercial vessel, and the defense a convoy from air and sea attacks,” a Russian military spokesman told the news agency. The exercise will promote strategic coordination and mutual trust between the two militaries, said Chen Bingde, Chief of the General Staff of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). Chen also said the drill would strengthen the naval forces’ ability to jointly confront new regional threats and maintain peace and stability in the region and world. Since 2005, China and Russia have conducted several joint military exercises within the framework of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, which also includes the Central Asian countries of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. The new drill comes after President Barack Obama last November signaled a “return to Asia” following a decade of conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. On Monday, the U.S. and Philippine military launched joint exercises involving in the South China Sea between the Philippines and China. The exercise includes 4,500 U.S. troops and 2,300 Filipino troops in a two-week event called “balikatan,” or shoulder-to-shoulder, the Voice of America reported. The Philippines, China, Vietnam, Taiwan, Malaysia and Brunei all have competing claims in the South China Sea, Voice of America said. –MSNBC

    Hi Alvin
    I do not know you personally. As a result, feel a bit awkward addressing you on a first name basis.
    I have noticed that most the comments which pass your; “moderation tests” address you in the first person, are these indeed personal friends of yours? I have made several posts of which, though a bit lengthy, Nevertheless they seemed quite clean (I write as objectively as I know how) and relatively “brief” in that they were not as long as many of your “other “comments.
    The comments I leave deal with many a controversial topic, such as; geophysical warfare, H.A.A.R.P., In addition to an advanced civilization occupying itself underneath the crust of the earth of which we may well be at war with. Furthermore I cover other conspiracy and fringe elements. I believe I am accurate in my research. I do not plagiarize and when I quote, I always reveal the source with a link and most often with their permission. Chemical Contrails, H,A,A,R.P., Do I have to know you and be your friend to leave comments?
    I am an aspiring writer and could you please let me know why you are moderating my post to the negative (in other words not posting them)?
    I am an immense fan of yours and always will be regardless.

    • As you know Cerey, I deal a lot with Earth sciences and spend little time chasing conspiracy theories. Though they are intriguing to some; they are unprovable and usually lack collaborative evidence. Every article I post regarding a science issue, I get at least 5 comments claiming HAARP is the cause for the occurrence- no matter the subject. How does HAARP create earthquakes, or incremental weather, or cause this or that to happen? Most can’t offer a scientific treatise on the subject to support their claims and so I find the shotgun comments about the subject little more than spam to be quite honest. I’m quite familar with the Gakona site and its capabilities. I knew about before most.

      Everyone is moderated. Due to the heavy traffic on the site, at any given time there about 3500 comments in que awaiting a lookover. Right now there is 4300. Not moderating and not publishing however, are two different things. Most, I haven’t had time to get to. It’s needful because a good portion of what’s put up is not worth printing.

      I’m glad you’re a fan of the site and I appreciate you and that.

    The US and the Philippines are starting joint military exercises on Monday…in the disputed South China Sea amid weeks of growing tensions. China has already allegedly made a statement to the raised level of risk for confrontation. Could get more interesting quickly. On many fronts.

    Alvin, I would love to hear your thoughts on the quadrupolar changes in the sun next month. Also very interesting is the annular solar eclipse on May 20th. I enjoy your writing as well as your spirit. Blessings, Sue

      Quadrupolar Sun diagram

      “When a similar phenomenon occurred about 300 years ago, the Earth’s average temperature fell slightly.”

      I respect scientists research but I’m not quite sure where the Japanese scientist is making the correlative leap of this solar event to a mini Ice Age 300 years ago. Quadrupolar arrays in magnetic fields rountinely occur during a solar maximum. Dr. Linda T. Elkins-Tanton documented a similar type disarray on the Sun during pole reversals between 2000-2003 where the Sun actually, for a short interval, had two north poles. Linda Elkins-Tanton is one of the brainest women on the planet.


      Earth in a quadrupolar disarray during a magnetic field reversal

      Tanton says Earth experiences something similar during a magnetic reversal. I’n not worried about this being a universe shattering event.

      Thanks for everything, Sue.

    Looks like China and Russia are getting ready for a major event.
    I wonder if its got something to do with this future clash with Isreal and Iran.
    The future is not looking bright for any of us at the moment.

    Hmm…..Kings of the east getting together?

    Four years ago, I was questioning prophecy and said there is no way that Russia or China would be involved in a 3rd world war! Well HELLO, I have egg on my face. Here we go! I do have to wonder why all the war games, have we entered into a new era where we just show off whose forces are bigger, or are we back in school playing games again. You know the ones where my daddy can kick your daddy, and if your friends with them you can’t be friends with us. Whatever it is, do you think one of these days that somebody is gonna misfire and start world war 3?


  7. Brandon says:

    I appreciate you saving it for another day. Although I’m a bit concerned by your last statement about having our plates full. LOL!
    God bless you,

    This sounds like China has called in the bill collector . The time is near when we will have to pay the piper and he is showing us who will come a knocking .

      Tim – That’s been at the back of my mind as well.
      Could this come back to bite US in the rear someday, and bite us HARD ?
