Chinggis Khan the Mongol conquer emploeyed and improved Sun Tzu’s ancient military stratagies, and reshaped civilization in asia and Europe. It is said that militaries in todays modern world still apply some of his philosophies of war.
http://suite101.com/article/chinggis-khan-and...
There are three principles outlined by the 6th century BCE Chinese philosopher, Sun Tzu, which the Mongols exemplified with deadly precision.

Sun Tzu’s Rule of Armed Struggle

Sun Tzu states: "Act after having made assessments. The one who first knows the measures of far and near wins–this is the rule of armed struggle."

Sun Tzu’s Rule of Deception and Division

Sun Tzu states:---"So a military force is established by deception, mobilized by gain, and adapted by division and combination."

Chinggis Khan would split his force into three to five independent columns during an invasion. Each commanding general had his specific objective, but was allowed to operate with a substantial degree of independence. This independence was contingent on maintaining steady channels of communication between Mongol columns in theater.

Defenders were often confounded by the apparent lack of cohesion the Mongol columns projected. Mongol generals swept across the land in different directions, often passing major fortifications, and laying siege to towns and villages, eliminating smaller defensive garrisons. Their maneuvers thinned defenses and rendered their enemy’s superior numbers and strength impotent.

Sun Tzu states:--- "Therefore when it moves swiftly it is like the wind, when it goes slowly it is like a forest; it is rapacious as fire, immovable as mountains."

The mobility and nomadic structure of Mongol society allowed for them to remain out of reach of the enemy. To grasp and fix the Mongols was nearly impossible. They could disappear ove an endless horizon, remaining eternally elusive from any aggressor. To force the Mongol army into a position of engagement was as difficult as moving a mountain.

Life itself is a constant battle. You caan apply some of these principles in other areas of your life,not just in armed combat.

Your rulers know that "mind control" through the media and T.V is their biggest weopon.:

"The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.” ― Sun Tzu, The Art of War

If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle” ― Sun Tzu, The Art of War, Special Edition

“Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win” ― Sun Tzu, The Art of War

wow! the crazy loony can cut and paste.

Colin Powell was NOT a great soldier . He had the chance to destroy Saddam there and then, but pulled back. A timid general is useless.

It's said that around 0.5% of men in the world (roughly 18 million) trace their paternal linage to ''Genghis Khan''. For a guy who died 1,890 years ago that's a very, very large amount.

I wonder how many people period descend from him I can easily see it as being over a billion.

"The Law of preservation is the First Law"-Elijah Muhammad

According Miyamoto Masushi,one of the greatest samuarai swordsman,and martial artists of his time,the "Two gaurdians" of the Buddah,written about in the sutras where the long sword,and short sword.

The historical Buddha was born (in India, 2500 years ago) into the Kshatriya or warrior caste. He was the son of a king, at a time when warfare was common, and military culture was a dominant cultural mode.

When Gautama Siddartha-the Buddha-lived on this earth,himself a man of peace and love, was nonetheless a prince and as such received the military training given all people of high birth in those days. His skill was so great in a wide number of technique that it is said that he had never been defeated.

Buddist practices incorporated into martial arts include the development of deep samadhi ,single pointed meditation which enables the experienced practitioner to place his or her mind on any object and keep it there with clarity and stability for as long as they want to.

Samadhi in the Buddhist practice tradition is cultivated to permit meditators to observe the subtle working of their mind, and escape the confusion of disturbed mental states. But single pointed concentration is a requirement of many other highly developed activities with no spiritual objectives at all: piloting a plane in a storm, hitting a baseball before 50,000 fans, trading stocks while watching markets move on half a dozen monitors at once, fighting a deadly opponent, armed or unarmed – all these demand deep concentration.

“The ultimate aim of martial arts is not having to use them”---Miyamoto Musashi, A Book of Five Rings: The Classic Guide to Strategies

“It is difficult to understand the universe if you only study one planet”---Miyamoto Musashi,

“Respect Buddha and the gods without counting on their help”-- Miyamoto Musashi,

“The true science of martial arts means practicing them in such a way that they will be useful at any time, and to teach them in such a way that they will be useful in all things.”---Miyamoto Musashi, The Book of Five Rings: Miyamoto Musashi

"There's a time for peace,and a time for war"--book of Ecclesiastes

Governments who understand the science of nature also time their wars based on plaanetary positions. The romans military campaigns usually began in March,named after 'Mars',the planet of war.
It has been shown in the Dos pilas staircase that the maya were timing some of their wars based upon geometric and stationary points of Venus and Jupiter.

All warfare is based on deception.”--Sun Tzu, The Art of War

Why Is the Military Creating an Army of Fake People on the Internet? The U.S. government long ago announced its intention to “fight the net”.

As revealed by an official Pentagon report signed by Rumsfeld called “Information Operations Roadmap”:

The roadmap [contains an] acknowledgement that information put out as part of the military’s psychological operations, or Psyops, is finding CYBERSPACE PSYOP

Here’s a slight glimpse into the Air Force’s cyber warfare efforts: a request for bids from last summer for “Persona Management Software,” which would allow one person to command an army of fake online people.

From the request, posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website:

Software will allow 10 personas per user, replete with background , history, supporting details, and cyber presences that are technically, culturally and geographacilly consistent. Individual applications will enable an operator to exercise a number of different online persons from the same workstation and without fear of being discovered by sophisticated adversaries. Personas must be able to appear to originate in nearly any part of the world and can interact through conventional online services and social media platforms.

The request was for 50 licenses, which means the Air Force hoped to create up to 500 fake Internet people. The request was filled in June, which means these fake people could be roaming the ‘net right now.

The very name 'Khan' and 'Chan' and 'Ghan' is connected to some history from the kind of 'Black' people (Mixed Black people)that came from eastern lands with similar names that can be seen in names today like 'AFGHANISTAN'(AF-GHAN) and Ghengis KHAN.

The success of the Mongol conquests should also be attributed at least in part to two other factors. One was military intelligence. The Mongols had a extensive network of spies and usualyl had extensive information of an enemy before they engaged them in battle. The other was their use of pyschological warfare.
