  • Perhaps instead of making pejorative comments with no substance at all, you could actually support your 'opinions' with factual material.

    If not, then why do you bother posting.
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

    • You were the first to write about "moral compass". Show us the evidence then that something like this actually exists.
      There are no Nazis in Ukraine. Idiots

        You can also look at the Geneva Convention.

        • This is of any interest. We're talking about ancient Mongols and history of warfare. Why should somebody give a damn about US manuals ?

            You asked for source material and you have now received it. I have no doubt that you don't 'give a damn' about anything but your own extremely biased and unsourced opinions. And that says it all about your dubious 'contributions.'

              Nope. I get nothing. You gave some US texts. The discussion was about Mongols and "moral compass". Your texts are of any relevance to both of those issues.

                The Geneva Convention is not a 'US text.

                    Mongol-founded states continued to exist for centuries after Genghis Khan. At the peak of their power Mongols had a well-organized empire with powerful bureaucracy, effective communications and trade routes which was in many ways more advanced than contemporary European states.

                      If it's not in "Superstrategists", it doesn't exist.

                        Wikipedia is a poor reference with too many 'authors' and not enough review.

                            And...have you used it or not? It seems to me the answer is a resounding 'not.'

                              It's on you to use them to know about Mongols.

                                You have not supported any of your postings in this thread with any credible primary or secondary source material (Wikipedia is not a credible source). So it seems that it's up to you, not me, to support your 'opinions.'
