Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Then again, the Mongols were quite capable of occupying much larger areas with much larger populations than the occupying forces (China and Persia being the prime examples). The Mongol's more open reign of terror is just one factor in that, another is the modern US military's reluctance to put soldiers in harm's way.
