Imaginary Enemies' Costing Americans $1 Trillion

In an interview with Press TV's U.S. Desk on Tuesday, Duff said the military must first "eliminate 180,000 troops and 200,000 contractors" who are in Afghanistan "pretending to negotiate with the Taliban."

He suggested that the military should also "withdraw from Iraq, shut down half of its facilities in Western Europe and cut its navy by 30 percent" if it really wants to cut costs.

But Defense Secretary Robert Gates has said it's "pension and healthcare costs" that are damaging the U.S. military. Veteran groups say if the Department of Defense wants to cut costs, there are many other ways to do it and that it's not fair to start with the healthcare costs.
