Conditions-based negotiations, renewed NATO troop commitments needed in Afghanistan
It would be a grave mistake for the U.S. to pull out of Afghanistan entirely, or without plenty of pre-warning.
The last Canadians involved in the NATO training mission in Afghanistan board an American Chinook helicopter on March 12, 2014 as they leave Kabul, Afghanistan. Conditions-based negotiations, renewed and smaller NATO troop commitments, as well as a commission that disarms the parties could lead to success in Afghanistan over time, writes Erika Simpson.
