  3. This undated portrait painting obtained 03 October 2005 courtesy of the Mongolian Embassy to the United States shows the 13th century Mongolian warrior Genghis Khan. Mongolia, celebrating its 800th anniversary this year, wants their hero to join the pantheon of statues of great American presidents gracing the US capital. For most Westerners, the name of Genghis Khan conjures up the ruthless marauding hordes who conquered mainland Asia to set up the Mongolian empire. But for the Mongolian community in the Washington area, Genghis Khan is, like George Washington, the father of his country.
