The so-called Genghis Khan Y-chromosome Y-DNA Haplotype of Genghis Khan:
Genghis Khan had six Mongolian wives and later married many daughters of foreign kings submitted to his rule, he also raped many women. After a conquest, looting, pillaging, and rape were the spoils of war for all soldiers, but Khan got first pick of the beautiful women. Khan's eldest son, Tushi, is reported to have had 40 sons. His grandson, Kubilai Khan, who established the Yuan Dynasty in China, had 22 legitimate sons, and was reported by Marco Polo to have added 30 virgins to his harem each year.
At the beginning of the third millennium after Christ the so-called Genghis Khan Y-chromosome short tandem repeat (STR) haplotype was found in 16 populations throughout a large region of Asia, stretching from the Pacific to the Caspian Sea, and was present at high frequency: approximately 8% of the men in this region carry it, and it thus makes up about 0.5% of the world total. The pattern of variation within the lineage suggested that it originated in Mongolia about 1,000 years ago. (more: 'The Genetic Legacy of the Mongols' Zerjal T. et al)
Gregory M. Cochran from the University of Utah was quoted as saying by UPI "... this disproves the theory of history promoted by Marx and Tolstoy that says only social forces matter, not individuals. This shows that one man can make a difference."
The Genghis Khan's Value Statement: "To kill people, take their property, see and enjoy the pain you have caused their families, and rape their women as a final gesture of power" contradicted universal human rights values to an extent never seen before the Mongol conquests. He was admired by his followers though: the Lenin's Russians attacking our World, first Poland, and two decades later the Hitler's Germans attacking our World, first Poland.
A notion of Ausrottung in German and extermination in English,
a well established goal of German policy against non-Germans:
Amongst all human rights, the primacy of the right to life is unanimously agreed to be pre-eminent and essential: it is the sine qua non, for all other human rights (apart from that to one's posthumous reputation) depend for their potential existence on the preservation of human life. Every right can also only survive as a consequence of the exercise of responsibilities. The right of a person or people not to be killed or avoidably left to die depends upon the reciprocal duty of other people to render protection and help to avert this. The concept of this moral responsibility and interdependence in human society has in recent times received increasing international recognition and affirmation.
"Haut doch die Polen, dass sie am Leben verzagen. Ich habe alles Mitgefuehl fuer ihre Lage, aber wir koennen, wenn wir bestehn wollen, nichts andres thun, als sie ausrotten; der Wolf kann nicht dafuer, dass er von Gott geschaffen ist, wie er ist, und man schiesst ihn doch dafuer todt, wenn man kann."
"Let's beat the Poles until they despair of life. I have all pity for their situation, but we can do nothing else, if we want to subsist, than to exterminate them; the wolf cannot help having been made by God, and yet one shoots him dead for it when one can."

"Ich bitte Sie, das, was ich Ihnen in diesem Kreise sage, wirklich nur zu hören und nie darüber zu sprechen. Es trat an uns die Frage heran: Wie ist es mit den Frauen und Kindern? – Ich habe mich entschlossen, auch hier eine ganz klare Lösung zu finden. Ich hielt mich nämlich nicht für berechtigt, die Männer auszurotten – sprich also, umzubringen oder umbringen zu lassen – und die Rächer in Gestalt der Kinder für unsere Söhne und Enkel groß werden zu lassen. Es mußte der schwere Entschluß gefaßt werden, dieses Volk von der Erde verschwinden zu lassen."
"I ask you that what I tell you in this circle you will really only hear and never talk about it. The question came up to us: What do to with the women and children? – I decided to find a very clear solution also in this respect. This because I didn’t consider myself entitled to exterminate the men – that is, to kill them or to have them killed – and to let the children grow up as avengers against our sons and grandsons. The difficult decision had to be taken to make this people disappear from the earth."

Prevent Genocide International
Genocide is the ultimate crime and the gravest violation of human rights it is possible to commit.
The word "genocide" was coined by the Polish jurist Professor Raphael Lemkin, from the Greek word "genos" (race, nation or tribe) and the Latin "cide" (killing): Axis Rule in Occupied Europe (Washington, D.C.: Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, 1944). Lemkin was the first main authority on the subject.
Toynbee stated that the distinguishing characteristics of the twentieth century in evolving the development of genocide "are that it is committed in cold blood by the deliberate fiat of holders of despotic political power, and that the perpetrators of genocide employ all the resources of present-day technology and organization to make their planned massacres systematic and complete".
The Nazi aberration has unfortunately not been the only case of genocide in the twentieth century. Among other examples which can be cited as qualifying are the German massacre of Hereros in 1904 - General von Trotha issued an extermination order; water-holes were poisoned and the African peace emissaries were shot. In all, three quarters of the Herero Africans were killed by the Germans then colonizing present-day Namibia, and the Hereros were reduced from 80,000 to some 15,000 starving refugees. P. Fraenk, The Namibians (London, Minority Rights Group, 1985).
***Kaiser Wilhelm II dispatched 14,000 troops to the region under the command of Lieutenant-General Lothar von Trotha. Von Trotha was renowned for the ruthless efficiency with which he had helped to suppress the Boxer Rebellion in China in 1900, and to quash resistance to his nation’s occupation of German East Africa (today’s Rwanda, Burundi and Tanzania).
Namibia’s Herero call for reparations by Charlie Tjatindi, August 17, 2010, Special Report, excerpts
Von Trotha’s written goal was: “I believe that the nation as such should be exterminated. The exercise of violence and crass terrorism and even with gruesomeness was and is my policy. I destroy the African tribes with streams of blood and streams of money. Only following this cleansing can something new emerge, which will remain.”
In August the same year, General Lothar von Trotha overpowered the Herero with modern weapons and war artillery in the Battle of Waterberg.
Due to missionary pressure and a growing shortage of labour in the colony, Von Trotha’s extermination campaign was eventually stopped by Berlin, and the surviving Herero people were put into concentration camps. Put to slavery, hungry and exposed to diseases such as typhoid and smallpox, more Herero men perished in these camps while their women were turned into sex slaves.
The result of this policy was that from 1904 to 1908 the Herero were reduced from a tribe of 80,000 persons to 15,000 starving refugees, something this Namibian tribe is still battling to come to terms with.
