Genghis Kahn is Bad

Overall, Genghis Kahn was a bad leader.  He was ruthless, merciless, and violent.  To this day, he is praised in Mongolia for his military skill and bravery.  In this praise, people completely disregard the fact that he brutally murdered millions of people and tortured and raped countless others.  Although bravery is an essential quality in being a good ruler, one must have a feeling of concern for the people within his empire.  Genghis Kahn's violent and destructive methods of conquering foreign lands and lack of compassion for others outweighs his military skill and bravery.
