  Who Were The Kipchaks?
Kipchaks may have been the first people to develop weapons of mass destruction, this feat having taken place in in the 14th century.
The early Turkic tribes warred incessantly with each other and with the Mongols, with the result that the Kipchaks were gradually driven westward from China and Mongolia, through today's Kazakhstan, and into the region between the Volga and Don Rivers, in today's Russia and Ukraine, a migratory process that lasted for perhaps 500 years.
I suppose the Kipchaks couldn't have foreseen how devastating this tactic would turn out to be, just as Hitler probably did not understand beforehand the magnitude of the monster he let loose.

 Sakaliba are Kipchaks
The word Kipchak etymologically ascends to Turkic ku-chak, which consists of two roots: ku (ku~kub~kuba) ‘red’, ‘pale’, ‘white – red’, ‘light’, and chak, meaning Sak~chak, the ancient name of Turks (instead of Iranian speaking tribes, as is wrongly asserted by some Indo-Europeists).
