    Hōshō was the first aircraft carrier of the Imperial Japanese Navy, commissioned in 1922.

    China is 90 years behind Japan. So it is nothing to trumpet. PRC needs more (say, 10) and not second hand obsolete ones but modern aircraft carriers comparable to the Nimitz class of US carriers.

    Japan had 31 aircraft carriers in WW2, not counting the battleships, cruisers, destroyers, etc....

    In WW2, Japan had such a powerful navy that it could take on the US navy. If the British navy had to fight the Japanese navy in WW2, the UK would have lost.

    Japan destroyed the Imperial Russian fleet in the Battle of Tsushima in 1905.

    It is not just the hardware. There must be large numbers of capable fleet commanders and all the personnel down the ranks manning the ships. No point having nice ships if their commanders are dumb dumb and do not know how to fight a naval battle properly.

    The American and Japanese navies (WW2) are battle proven.
    Well the Brits had far pressing issues back home with a certain Mr. Hitler and couldn't send their best naval forces. HMS Prince of Wales and Repulse were sent to their doom.

    Japan beating the Russians - well the Russian navy was forced to go half way round the world and Russia's military might was already on the wane.

    Please wake up and forget about the good and bad guys your see in the shows. It is about survival. USA will not come to your aid if there is nothing to gain or his interest is compromised.

    China or Japan or any other countries will not worry about your interest if you have nothing to contribute to them. China needs to build their defense or attack options, so does other country. Nothin special about it.

    The basic fundamental is still this fact. If a country has taken the aggression approach towards others and did not admit, it is a very dangerous country. The rest of the world need to counter them.

    We need to educate our next generation on history. More on aggression towards other nations. Within your own country, 3 rd parties will never understand their internal politics. USA was thrown out of Vietnam when they try to 'help' Vietnam. We surely cannot say the majority of Vietnamese like USA.

    Those who still think there are such thing as good guys, please reconsider.

    Why must China explain to the US? As though one is the master and the other is a slave.
    This kind of bullying attitude by the world's sole super power is the reason why Singapore stood fast and insisted on caning Michael Faye.
    Does not China have a sovereign right to buy (this second hand one from Ukraine) or make its own aircraft carrier?
    This is China's first aircraft carrier. Only 1 up to the year 2011 !

    Even india and Thailand have.

    How come US never asked other countries to explain.
    Yes FOR SURE, this smacks of typical imperialist pig US bullying !!

    you just wonder where China is sailing this aircraft carrier to ? Layang Layang? Spratleys? Michief Reef ? Senkaku ?

    we will be too near the fireworks when that happens

    I think the Chinese buyers got conned by the Ukranians ...... now that they bought the carrier, the chinese now have to figure out a way to move it out of that pond

    Otherwise I suspect the CHinese have NO intention of moving the carrier but instead intends to buy all the land around the pond to build luxury housing while the carrier is converted into a shopping mall and entertainment center ...

    300 years ago, China was the numero 1 in the world. Then the Europeans rose to power with big guns on ships. Did China then asked the Europeans to explain why they build big ships with big guns?

    Power is now shifting back to the East. Naturally, the West is worried &/or jealous.

    Throughout history, power is being rotated around the world. Every dog has its day!

    Currently, the East is still very far behind the West in weapons technology.

    Actually Singapore needs US protection and to be friendly with almost every other country. This is a potentially dangerous region.

    Generally, US presence in SE Asia is benign and beneficial.

    This isolated case of the US State Department asking China to explain is a blunder. They do make rare mistakes. The staff in the US State Department still got a cold war mind set of the 1950s/60s. Maybe they forgot that China (the country and its people) was a loyal ally of the US in WW2. The staff in the US State Department forgot who was the enemy that attacked US without provocation at Pearl Harbour and who tortured many US soldiers in the death march of Bataan.
