re: Alexander the Great or ghengis khan - Hawgnsincebirth55
Again this debate is just between Alexander and ghengis not the mongols vs Macedonia so yes we are punishing him for having outstanding generals. For the sake of the debate...

re: Alexander the Great or ghengis khan - Hawgnsincebirth55
Your really selling Alexander short comparing him to any general China had at the time they faced the horde. China was in turmoil all around the time of the Mongolia attacks and never had a strong leader except for the Song who held out until his grandson kublai conquered them many years after ghe...

re: Alexander the Great or ghengis khan - Hawgnsincebirth55
I just have the personal belief Alexander would end up getting the best of ghengis mentally and end up making him fight on Alexander’s terms and Alexander would win. Alexander in my opinion (and that’s all it is) is the better tactical and strategic general and would take the day because of it...

re: Alexander the Great or ghengis khan - Hawgnsincebirth55
Yeah I knew what you were talking about subotai was from that region or maybe slightly east I believe himself (I could be thinking of a different general but I think that’s him) and he was the one who conquered them for the khan. ...

re: Alexander the Great or ghengis khan - Hawgnsincebirth55
[quote]Historians agree[/quote] I don’t know about that part but there was a real possibility no doubt. But again, the fact that both his sons, grandsons, and generals were all magnificent does not help in the argument as to whether ghengis was a better general than Alexander. If we were arguing whe...

Ok yeah I knew about that I thought you were talking about the Mediterranean part of Europe we are on the same page then :cheers: I could be mistaken but I believe he always had some Russians in his army. There were still large parts of Russia that were tribal at the time that allied with the kh...

re: Alexander the Great or ghengis khan - Hawgnsincebirth55
[quote]He still made it to Eastern Europe[/quote] you sure about that? I’m pretty positive the farthest west ghengis got in his lifetime was when he conquered the khwarazham (sp?) empire which would put him controlling most of Pakistan, Afghanistan and parts of modern Iran and maybe Iraq. Still impr...

re: LSU = DBU? LSU = NFLU? - Hawgnsincebirth55
It’s sad that your bragging about claiming Dabo. He isn’t your fricking coach. I’d take Saban over Morris but I don’t beat my chest when bama beats lsu or any other team the way y’all do with Clemson. You would honestly think Clemson was apart of lsu...

re: Worst pick of the first round - Hawgnsincebirth55
[quote]he was given a chance in games.[/quote] that’s the problem. If he was a true first rd pick he should’ve been a workhorse in college. Unless Damien Harris is about to be take. I’m the first 10 picks of the 2nd rd and all the young guys who are still at bama are gonna be 1st rd guys themselves....

re: Alexander the Great or ghengis khan - Hawgnsincebirth55
I acknowledged my mistake already in this thread, but I knew it was along that line of philosophy. The khans predecessors were defeated by Alexander, and I truly believe with the weapons of temujins time, Alexander would have defeated him as well. He was too smart and would tactically overwhelm the ...

re: Worst pick of the first round - Hawgnsincebirth55
Omg I just saw where the raiders took josh Jacobs in the 1st?! What a horrible pick:rotflmao: don’t you think if he was a 1st round NFL talent he would’ve been more than just a part of a 3 man rotation? Hell without looking at his stats I bet he never had a single season over 7 or 800 yards rushing....

Good points. People are really underselling Alexander’s mind I’m mmmm this thread. Yes it is true Alexander inherited his army but imagine the son who takes over as ceo then takes his fathers company to the Forbes top company in the world. Alexander conquered an area LARGER than the Greek known worl...

[quote]Aristotle[/quote] thanks I knew it was one of them :lol: but yes the Macedonians were basically Greek and that is who time based their civilization on and who then int turn rome did, then Europe, which developed us into who we are today. Alexander is part of the roots that the culture we call...

re: Alexander the Great or ghengis khan - Hawgnsincebirth55
Again.. the fact that the mongols decided to rape almost every woman they came across in a conquered city or tribe does not mean he is a better military leader than Alexander. Alexander conquered a quarter of the Mongolia empire at its height (not just the part that was gained under ghengis) in only...
