Conquer or Conquered

written by: Anne G

@TheInkTruth

 

In the year 711 the Moors began the invasion of the Iberian peninsula.

The conquest lasted 46 years.

It took seven centuries to vanquish them.

It is the year 2015 and the Arabian peninsula is under siege.

How long will it take to vanquish this invader; and at what cost?

Why write?
I write because I am:
Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.
My intention: To poke, prod and provoke!
