WASHINGTON (AP) - From Egypt to Syria to Iraq and beyond, the Obama administration is determined to show it will only go so far to help save nations in chaos from themselves.

President Barack Obama has long made it clear that he favors a foreign policy of consultation and negotiation, but not intervention, in the persistent and mostly violent upheavals across the Mideast. And he appears determined not to deviate this week even to help reverse turbulence in Egypt, one of the United States' most important Arab allies.

The MSM learns a new term?

It typically calls that "isolationist" (at least where the doctors Paul are concerned).

That is like calling well

That is like calling well stoked coals 'Ice'.
It is as if they set the goal post for non interventionism as 1 dash to the right of W, which Obama qualifies for I guess, and that allows them to use the term.

The real test for non interventionism is:
Are there bases still open on foreign soil
[y/n]
y - you are a neocon paying lip service to the public
n - you walk the walk
