A group of Russia’s Pacific Fleet warships has arrived at the U.S. Pearl Harbor naval base to take part in the Rim of the Pacific international drills, a fleet spokesman said on Saturday.

“During their long voyage from Vladivostok to Pearl Harbor, the warships’ crews held several firing drills, successfully destroying all the targets,” First-Rank Captain Roman Martov said.

The naval task group comprising the Admiral Panteleyev destroyer, the tanker Boris Butoma and the Fotiy Krylov salvage tug sailed off Vladivostok in the Russian Far East on June 13 to head for the U.S. Hawaiian Islands where the RIMPAC-2012 large-scale international naval exercises will be held.

The active phase of the drills will take place from July 11 through August 2 to involve 45 warships and support vessels from 22 countries, and also 100 combat aircraft and over 20,000 marines.

The Russian navy sailors will for the first time take part in the international naval maneuvers that have been held since 1971.

The drills will simulate dozens of combat missions and exercises, including marines’ interaction in humanitarian, search and rescue operations. The exercises will also practice the evacuation of civilians in an amphibious landing operation, and also joint anti-submarine, anti-aircraft and anti-ship defense.

“The drills program also envisages combat firing, using torpedoes and missiles. Russian sailors will have to accomplish missions to put up a naval blockade, ensure the freedom of sailing, fight piracy, arms and drugs smuggling,” Martov said.

The RIMPAC drills were held for the first time in 1971 on the U.S. initiative and involved the navies of the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Australia and New Zealand.

Today the RIMPAC drills aim to practice the Pacific Rim navies and raise their readiness for operations to fight piracy, terrorism, and also carry out humanitarian missions in case of natural and man-made disasters.

      Openly gathering information as you are stating will be misinformation. US navy will make sure of that, Russian Navy will know that too. Something else going on in the art of Sun Tzu.

      Soviet cargo ships with war material were entering German ports on the day of Nazi invasion of the Soviets. Soviet appeasement was for time and to give misinformation to Nazi intelligence. Today it was Yeltsin playing a buffoon so as to appear that Russia can be bamboozled do to its situation as to gain time for perestroika ( postpone WW-3) . He then gave power to Putin as to clean up the mess he allowed in his buffoonery. Americanes loved Yeltsin in his clowning as Americanes loved I love Lucy.

      This strategic realignment started with President Reagan’s joke (signaled the Soviets) about that Moscow was about to be bombed ; he ( President Reagan) was a Soviet agent and the Soviet restructured them selfs to prepare for WW3. it worked as the appeasement worked with Hitler before WW-2. . :cry:

      Pentagon wanted to invade Cuba in the 1960s and was working for an excuse in the Cuban missile crises but President Kennedy did not allow it and so was murdered for the two debacle attempts to invade Cuba, starting with the bay of pigs ending with the missile crises.

      ( Nevre mind Operation Unthinkable as WW2 was ending that was planned for the Soviets by the 1% than ). The U.S. 1% want another crack at it.

      President Reagan was a Democrat and a President of Union labor . Labor rights is Communism to the US 1%. ( Nancy’s name was on the Communist list , Hollywood’s black list. Reagan saved her from the Communist witch hunt. ) The dissolution of the Soviet Union was to postpone and better if to forgo WW-3 all together. :arrow: :?: :idea: But the Pentagon pushing it still :twisted: :evil:
