Re: Indian Naval News & Discussion - 22 April 2015

Logically, if a gun(selective?) doesn't/won't fire across the western border, importance of each of other increases two fold.

In case a gun won't fire due to a super power's interests in many/each countries then importance of each of remaining increases that much.
