“We won’t be able to expand globally only with Koreans,” Park says. “We have to form allied forces.”
The Mongols held sway over territory containing 200 million people for 150 years, says Jack Weatherford, a professor of anthropology at St. Paul, Minnesota-based Macalester College and author of the book “Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World” (Crown, 2004).
“Genghis Khan’s whole Mongol nation consisted of no more than a million people, and his army was between about 90,000 and 110,000,” Weatherford says. “So he relied very heavily on local people to rule for him.”
