U.S. abdication would also have the potential to spark a nuclear arms race in Asia given the power vacuum the U.S. would create in its retreat from its commitments and interests. Would-be aggressors, including states such as Iran, would calculate that there is little risk in taking military measures that undermine U.S. interests.
