Fact of the Day: Khan Obliteration

Genghis Khan wasn't exactly an unforgiving man as he would accept the surrender of his enemies with good terms. However all those who utterly opposed him were crushed and that extended to the civilian populations as well where not many were spared from his wrath. While the exact number killed is unknown it does fall within the millions.

There are still leaders like this in the world. Fortunately, they can't get away with as much -- although what they do get away with is plenty!

It takes a brutal and heartless person to carry out this type of destruction, sad thing this is a trait in a lot of our leaders.

The Romans weren't much different. People had a right to fight for their independence but once defeated the penalties were terrible for anyone revolting.

Spot on Stephen.
Genghis Khan, irrespective of some of his brutality, was an incredible explorer and opened up many paths for trade way back in his time.

The present "loose cannon" in the White House may end up making Genghis Khan appear saintly.
I doubt if Turnip Top will get a fanfare welcome of goodwill if he descends on Puerto Rico again........probably a barrage of cyclone rotten tomatoes!
