"From a noninterventionist perspective, Rohrabacher is the best choice of those reportedly in the running, with this caveat: 'realism' is not the same as non-interventionism. It depends on the context. In the present context -- escalating tensions with Russia, deepening US involvement in Iraq and Syria, and the hegemonic pretensions of our political class -- they are our allies. However, they are what I would call 'Asialationists,' i.e. they, like Mearsheimer, see China as a rising threat, and their proposed 'pivot' to Asia -- which was announced but never really implemented by the Obama administration -- spells possible trouble ahead."
