Hi one of the reason can be USnavy not interested is Indonesian navy doesn’t have anything superior or at par to usnavy where USA can access any hidden secrets from the wreckage
just a thought
I think it is just a matter of not being close enough to help. You need specialized ships for conducting searches like this properly.
Apparently US refuse to salvage the submarine for free, which could cost as much as $200m, almost as expensive as buying a new submarine, while China offer to help for free.
Wow!! I had no idea that happened. Australia is just like it's uncle Sam through and through. What a darn good lackeys the kangaroos are.Besides cost consideration, the US navy probably need longer time deploy and travel to location.
The Indonesian are also just as wary of the presence US and Australian forces in its water. The won't forget how the Australian intelligence agency bug the mobile phone of Indonesian president.
The US is just bragging as usual. They brag about helping India with vaccines and equipment, but it is China that does the job.
