  1. British Army to train descendents in keeping the peace
    The Daily Telegraph reports that the Mongolian Army, descended from Genghis Khan's hordes that swept through Asia into Europe 800 years ago, is to be trained in peacekeeping by British troops. A small detachment of Mongolian officers will take part in a multi-national exercise on a former Russian army tank range near the capital Ulan Bator in the next few days. Brig Gordon Kerr, the British defence attache in Beijing who is co-ordinating the arrangements, said: "This will be our first training operation with the Mongolian forces. The aim is to encourage an exchange of ideas and, at the same time, to recognise the effort of the Mongolians to get involved in peace-keeping despite their very small resources." The five-day training mission will involve detachments of eight to 15 soldiers from Britain, France and the US. Russia and China, the other two permanent members of the UN Security Council, have also been invited to join. 28/06/04

  4. Never mind about traiing a small handful of his descendents.............has anyone read the articles about how many men can actually claim they have his DNA??!! It's some absolutely phenomenal number - apparently due to his taking of vast numbers of women on his rampages, mostly whom seemed to give birth to sons, thousands of them!! And then his sons did the same thing of course (before he chopped a couple of them for plotting against him.........)

    Recently proved by DNA testing in the region and reported in various media...
