They must like your culture more than their own.
Say that to Khengis Khan and its horde. They just slaughtered everyone, til only their culture was left in the Empire.

In fact, it's not true. Especially in Asia. China (and Japan) was pretty influenced by Mongol culture. And invaders themselves have been influenced by local cultures.

Well now you are just failing to see the point again and went offtopic. You stated that the "invaders" culture has to be more liked. And I stated that Khengis just murdered everyone who didnt like the mongol culture. I didnt argue with you about how similar the japanese, mongol or chinese cultures are. Ofcourse they borrowed from eachothers cultures. That doesnt mean they like eachother or accepted the others rule so easly. Japan and Chinese have similar cultures, that doesnt mean they like eachother. India and Pakistan have similar cultures, they dont like eachother. NK and SK have similar cultures, they dont like eachother...etc, you get the point.

They did not really "like" mongol culture, but most of them, from West to East, were fascinated by them. By their kind of purity and simplicity.
That's the main difference between a civilized empire and a barabarian empire.
