It has demonstrated time and time again that it will not be conquered – whether by Alexander the Great, Arab Muslims, Genghis Khan, the Soviet Union or the American-led NATO forces, including the enormous price paid by the Canadian soldiers with their lives.Now the latest conquering forces are getting ready to leave and one has to wonder what has changed.
