If they want to tie up the resources in that area, that won't work either since other assets are alerted. >Thanks..I got what I needed. If it is a deliberate attempt, ...

Re: Indian Naval Discussion

RED ALERT!! Very significant, might be a dry run or actual run to sneek dangerous stuff into India.... This can also be an attention grabber to cover up some clandestine ops elsewhere w.r.t India.
