“Most Americans don’t realize we still have troops in Iraq, Afghanistan”

US military campaigns overseas do not achieve anything, believes founder of the website Anti-war.com Eric Garris. Speaking to RT, Garris reminded that the US economy is being hampered by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“Since Barack Obama was elected we have seen a lot less attention to the wars. The anti-Bush atmosphere that was around focusing on the war has disappeared. Now most people don't realize that we still have 90,000 troops in Iraq, over 100,000 troops in Afghanistan. And that number is going to go up. They don't see that this is what's causing problems with the economy,” Garris told RT.
