BEIJING: China's first aircraft carrier, Liaoning, successfully completed a series of tests during a 37-day training mission in the disputed South China Sea and has returned to port, the official Xinhua news agency reported.

Diplomats watching the scene expect China to send it to the East China Sea and areas around the Diaoyu Islands, which are contested by China and Japan.

Aircraft, naval vessels and submarines also participated in the Liaoning's tests. The Chinese naval ship accompanying the carrier had a near collision with a US Navy ship for which both sides blamed the other. US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel called China's behaviour "irresponsible." But the Chinese media blamed the US ship for getting too close to the Liaoning.

"All tests and training programs went well as scheduled," the state news agency said.

The first journey of Liaoning covered areas near the disputed islands in South China Sea, which are claimed by Philippines and Vietnam along with China. The Chinese foreign ministry was involved in intense diplomatic parleys with them to ensure that the Liaoning's journey does not result in fresh controversies over the disputed islands, sources said.

The Xinhua news agency said without naming sources that the Liaoning tested its combat system and conducted a formation practice and "attained the anticipated objectives."

China bought the carrier from Ukraine in 1998 and it was extensively refurbished before being inducted in 2012.

China has ambitious plans to launch larger aircraft carriers in the future as compared to Liaoning, the country's deputy navy chief Song Xue was quoted by Xinhua. Song did not say how many carriers China wants to launch. "We won't have just one," he said. The statement comes in the midst of massive expansion of China's naval capabilities.

Many of America's aircraft carriers have docked in American occupied Hawaii.
Given that, what's the big deal about China having one that didn't dock in any occupied port because China hasn't deposed any Hawaiian Queens, invaded and annexed their lands?

Good on for China, and good on for the dozen American redundant munitions delivery systems that are lock on the carrier.

Info is stating that Hawaii is being occupied by the US by force from the 1800's overthrow of the Queen of Hawaii so Dole could build pineapple plantations.

Well, if it's history you're interested in, then pretty much everybody has occupied everywhere. It is very difficult to think of anywhere that hasn't been. Hell, the Spanish and Portuguese occupied most of Central and South America and of course North America by other Europeans. Britain by the Anglos, most of the Middle East by Arabs, Zulus and other tribes the lands of the Hottentots and Bushmen, the Visigoths Spain and this could take forever, but it would be as pointless as Indoidiot's claim.

Life goes on.

Not at all. I read history, not refuse to accept it because it doesn't fit with what I want to be true.

Many countries have invaded and colonised others, England being an excellent example.
The crimes of one country don't make the crimes of another any more acceptable and in no way excuse denying those crimes.
America invaded and annexed Hawaii - end of story.

No that's not the story, douche. I've educated you on this subject before, so there is no excuse for your ignorance and no explanation but your pathetic anti-Americanism, you insignificant worm.
