The last time the Americans did gunboat diplomacy with their 7th fleet, Indira Gandhi had to shelve off her plans of invading west Pakistan(1971). Diego Garcia was primarily aimed at India.
Once the Americans got to know that Indira was about to send a team to do a suicide raid on DG, the indigenous local population of that island was kicked off
and they now live in foreign islands as refugees.
Well, don't believe in rumors here is from horse's mouth where good general himself has been on record to say that he had taken that contingency into account had Americans moved forward with 7 fleet brain farts at that time per his exact words : "I will go down in history as a general who defeated both America and Pakistan together". Do listen the interview from 2:44 onwards : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvDjHcTeTe8
From 6:59 onwards plan was to invade west Pakistan , capture some territory and go back after that it was changed at the last moment :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyFVOZ91dGA
Please evaluate this event in the background of things that have happened in the recent past before this event :
U.S. Warns Kabul It May Withdraw All Forces By May 1 If Peace Talks Do Not Progress : March 4, 2021
Operation Sankalp: Indian Navy undertakes Passage Exercise with Bahrain Navy in Persian Gulf : March 17,2021
US-China Secret Summit in Alasska : March 19, 2021
Afghan government, Taliban agree to accelerate peace talks after Moscow summit : March 19,2021
IMF Approves 39 month 6 billion USD Package to Porkistan: March 24,2021
IN Quad Plus France Naval Exercise In The Bay Of Bengal (including the same flotilla that transgressed into indian EEZ) : April 6,2021
Taliban attack on covert US base in Afghanistan complicates Biden's withdrawal decision : April 7,2021
US does FOPNOP around lakshwadeep island and announces it : April 9,2021
Now with this background you can see the picture begins to emerge :
Massa did what our diplomats have been saying (do look up recent interview on nitin gokhale's YT channel for recent interview's on Quad) that US herself is not sincere/serious about Quad and they have made it public where there choices are. They are going to accept Chinese and porkis (like it has always been) and screw Russians and anyone opposite in that camp.(i.e Quad is finished or put in cold storage till this admin is in power).
Which means Massa will make a move towards Iran, China Taiwan and we must prepare to get back PoK.
Now here is how I wish GOI should respond :
Mine the area around island territories on both the shores (East A&N, lakshwadeep on West), have passage exercises around Diego Garcia may be few sorties of Brahmos slung MKI's.
Here is a cool response I found found on an old incident similar to this on teeter :
"Many years ago, an Indian flotilla out in the Gulf led by Rear Admiral Madanjit Singh (later Vice Admiral and FOC-in-C, Western Naval Command) was asked by a US naval ship to identify itself "This is Indian Navy " and to its query “How long have you been here?” replied
"Since before Christ!”
