Newt: ‘We Are Not Going to Fix Afghanistan’

By Maggie Haberman, Politico

Via POLITICO’s Emily Schultheis, Newt Gingrich, assessing the problems in the Middle East, had this to say about Afghanistan:

    “We are not going to fix Afghanistan. It is not possible. These are people who have spent several thousand years hating foreigners. And what we have done by staying is become the new foreigners. This is a real problem. And there are some problems where you have to say, ‘You know, you are going to have to figure out how to live your own miserable life because you clearly don’t want to learn from me how to be unmiserable.’ And that is what you are going to see happen.”
