    Yeah, that Army was defeated. But that didn't stop Kulai from leaving little piles of skulls stacked up throughout the Mideast.

    Well, I would look at Genocide and the wiping out of tribes and those killed. Which is why Alexander can't compare.

    Attila should have been entered. The Huns were absolutely brutal and took no prisoners.

    Re: Who's worse: Genghis Khan, or Hitler?

    I don't think evilness is directly proportional to the amount of people one has killed. There is definitely something more sinister about Hitler's "extermination" than Genghis Khan's impersonal conquest.

    For example, I think someone like Phalaris was more evil than Genghis Khan. He stuck people in the "Brazen Bull" and burned them alive--perhaps the most
    horrific torture method ever invented.

    I am now going to start doing that. Obama is just like Genghis Khan! The Mongols had socialized health care....

    While WWII was the deadliest war in history, with between 40 and 72 million deaths, the Mongol conquests come close, having result in between 30 and 70 million deaths. And by worldwide population, the Mongol conquests were much deadlier, 17% vs. 1-3% of living people having been killed.

    Each man committed genocide on an unprecedented scale, but today Genghis Khan enjoys an amount of notoriety, akin to that given to Alexander the Great.

    So is one man more evil than the other? And if so, who?
    Capitulation to Genghis Khan could bring a modicum of citizenship, protection, and prosperity in exchange for tribute. Capitulation to Hitler if you were a Slav, a Jew, or any number of other peoples meant eventual extermination. Even by the standards of the 13th Century Hitler was more barbarous.
