JMSDF Seeking USS Peleliu for F-35B Operations?

The authoritative (on Asian military affairs) Kanwa Defense Review is reporting the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force (JMSDF) is seeking to purchase USS Peleliu to operate their planned fleet of F-35B aircraft. This part of the escalating naval build up in Asia and is in response to Chinese plans for at least three more aircraft carriers. Peleliu will be sailing to Sasebo this summer to replace the retiring USS Denver until her replacement, USS Green Bay, arrives in February 2015. US Navy photo.
