    we know it probably won't happen anytime soon, but that doesn't stop China from bringing it up, does it?

    well, still no news on the real cause of the June aircraft crash, but at least some people are getting punished for it. If it wasn't an important platform like KJ-200, I don't think it would get reprimanded like this.

    looks like there will be more military exercise in store between China and Russia. Although, this one should be much smaller in scale

    PLA delagation visits US military in San Diego

    Chinese Military Delegation Visits San Diego
    Story Number: NNS061101-24
    Release Date: 11/1/2006 4:08:00 PM

    By Chief Mass Communication Specialist (SW/AW) Walter T. Ham IV, U.S. 3rd Fleet Public Affairs

    SAN DIEGO (NNS) -- As part of a five-day tour of U.S. military bases in California and Hawaii, a Chinese military delegation visited the U.S. 3rd Fleet Command Center and the San Diego-based Guided Missile Destroyer USS Preble (DDG 88) here Oct. 30.

    The delegation, consisting of 30 mid-level commanders from the People’s Liberation Army, also visited the I Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Pendleton, Calif., Oct. 31, before flying to Monterey, Calif., and Honolulu to tour other military installations and cultural attractions.

    “We have many common security interests with the Chinese,” said 3rd Fleet Deputy Commander, Rear Adm. John R. Hines Jr., “and this visit is a great opportunity to increase mutual understanding, enhance cooperation and improve the lines of communication.”

    This was the third Chinese visit to the U.S. Pacific Command area of operations in the last 12 months as a part of a program of visits between the United States and China. A delegation of mid-grade U.S. commanders visited the People’s Republic of China in March 2006.

    “We are committed to stability in the Pacific Rim region, and we are positioning our naval forces accordingly. These visits provide the transparency needed to improve mutual understanding,” said Hines. “U.S. 3rd Fleet was proud to host these Chinese commanders here in San Diego and to show them what makes our military so great: the men and women who choose to serve and wear the uniform.”

    Covering 50 million square miles, U.S. 3rd Fleet commands operations, training and theater engagement from the west coast of the United States to the International Dateline. 3rd Fleet is also the strategic enabler for Sea Shield and Sea Trial.
