Ships can't be two places at once. I always thought this configuration could work in a zero anti-ship threat environment. Park one off the Horn of Africa and target a big part of that and the Middle East.

Then keep the high end ships for the high end fight.
I'm not sure I'd call Horn of Africa a "zero anti-ship threat environment." At least a couple of tankers have been hit in the Gulf of Aden (MV Limburg in 2002, for example), and the Red Sea is a serious hot zone these days. Honestly, I'm not sure there is such a thing as a zero-threat environment in any place we also have a plausible need for strike missiles.

These days, anti-ship missiles are easy enough to buy (or indeed make, if you aren't too bothered about sophistication) that there aren't really any 'low-risk' areas any more. Or at least, none that justify sending in any military presence greater than an honour guard for the ambassador.
