Genghis Khan, Mongol of action

June 08, 2008

LEWIS BEALE'S "More Than Just Surviving" [June 1] was superb.

Russian director Sergei Bodrov's Genghis Khan movie, "Mongol," has shown us that unlike Alexander the Great, who dreamed of creating a "New World Order" in which East and West would prosper through cooperation, Genghis Khan had a gruff, unsentimental belief in self-reliance. "Two eyes for an eye" could have been his motto.

He believed in action and territory, not ideas or treaties.
