RUBIO: “It’s not nation-building. We are assisting them in building their nation”

By

Marco Rubio can’t even seem to navigate the friendly confines of Fox News.

When discussing Iraq, Marco Rubio made a confusing comment about his Middle East policy

Rubio seemed to express support for US troops being present in Iraq, but he maintained this did not represent the controversial “nation-building” philosophy that led to a protracted American military presence in that country following the US invasion in 2003.

However, while insisting he doesn’t advocate “nation-building,” Rubio seemed to define his policy as exactly that.

“It’s not nation-building. We are assisting them in building their nation,” Rubio said of his vision for Iraq.
