I just posted something in the thread on the acquisition of guns.

Can you take a look and tell me what you think? It is regarding why Songhai lost to the Moroccans. I am not done, and I will post some more about it later today or tomorrow. Thanks.

Interesting post. Although I don't entirely agree, I understand where you're coming from with that argument, and there is some merit to it, since there was a battle at Jenne in 1609 where the Songhai army was victorious over the Moroccan army. But I'll give my opinion on that argument in detail in that thread when I have more time.
