Well this is welcomed news if it happens

I say they don't have to fight. Let them train the Future Afghan military and police units elsewhere if they don't want to put more troops in harms way. That seems reasonable. That will free up our troops.

I've tried looking for some more information on the UKs proposed negotiation proposal with the moderates but nothing new has come down the pike.
