The Pentagon has deployed its nuclear submarine USS West Virginia off the Diego Garcia Island in the Indian Ocean. This is the first time, a US Navy nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine docked at the remote island in the Indian Ocean. The nuclear submarine has been there since October, but its location wasn’t unveiled until now. Unlike the Los Angeles-class or Virginia-class nuclear-powered fast attack submarines, the SSBNs do not make public appearances. Russia’s war in Ukraine, China’s belligerence in the Indo-Pacific and North Korea’s aggression is likely prompting the US to display its military power. Is this a message to China, Russia or North Korea?
