Totally out of context quote #7

April 12, 2007.

“I hate this country and every single person in it. Including you.”

Context: Journalist Jean MacKenzie has a “foreigner meltdown” after a mullah at Radio Helmand suggests she is too old for marriage. She then storms out and vents her anger at her translator. Note to all mullahs: don’t suggest to a Western woman that she is old. That’s like picking a fight with a Marine Corps Force Recon team at a North Carolina jarhead bar.

Find the whole story at Jean MacKenzie’s Afghan blog.
