I don't even know why people say Khan.
He never really did anything...
Conquered a lot of grass with a lot of horsemen.

Never really overtook any of the major areas, just look at the thrashing the Mamluks gave to the "Golden Horde".
It's like saying that you've traveled the entire world thus you are the greatest traveler when in reality you took an airplane from New York to Beijing.

Are you dense or just baiting?

Retards like him look at the Middle East and think it was just entirely barren desert.

He's even spouting the Mamluk meme, thinking they actually stopped the Mongol Empire in force, and didn't just slap around Hulagu when he was busy fighting with his cousin.

Send 10 men send 100 men send 1,000 men against any trained force with the means to destroy that number of men and you will always receive the same results.

Lol what a total fucking reversal

Those were impressive fears that all you can say in return, despite evidence, is that they weren't good.

It's not all out war. If there is no international law, morality code and US army is as savage as the Mongols, i would say North VN had no chance to defeat the US, I say this as an vietnamese.

This might come as a shock to you, but the majority of any and every civilisation consisted of peasants.

Bait or retardation?

Genghis Khan was long dead by the battle of Ayn Jalut. The Mamluks never faced the true "Golden horde"
>never really overtook any major areas
Again, bait or genuine retard

Ögedei.

Genghis, outside of china, essentially committed a massive raid on an unprecedented level. Ögedei had to reconquer lots of it, and then brought the cities into the empire to tax and run.

I say this as an American: We never really gave a shit about human rights in fighting that war.

If we found something really loathesome (which wasn't much) we just had the gooks or thais do it so we could sleep easier at night.

Reports say that Hulagu had over 100k men in his army and most of them went to the kurultai with him, the mamlukes fought only the leftovers.

By the time of the mongols second defeat the all encompassing empire already died, the khanates didn't have enough manpower for big invasions anymore.

>ib4 but the Mamlukes would have reckt them anyway!

Oh yeah? outnumbered Mamlukes got defeated 1 time already, pic related.
