    They didn't specify warship size. Just ask Jeff for one.

    Why China was invited to the RIMPAC 2014, but not RIMPAC 2016 and 2018

    China Disinvited from Participating in 2018 RIMPAC Exercise

    I sincerely regard this as a good news. It is the same as Russia in G8, or the proposed Russia in NATO. Joining an hostile party was not a good idea to begin with. It was way too early for such close collaboration. It is only sensible after the SCS "FON" is stopped.
