I honestly don't understand how such as disjointed policy can pass muster. Admittedly, coherence is apparently not a requirement in the Pacific Theater either.
This is a peacetime deployment, with diplomatic objectives as well as contributing to NATO and other alliances.

You also seem to assume that the Atlantic, Medditeranean, etc will not be contested by Russia or China. The PLA Navy is increasingly present in waters West of Suez. Moscow, Beijing, and Tehran are allies.
