The Korean War was a war between North Korea and South Korea. The war began on June 25th, 1950 following a series of clashes along the border. The United Nations, with the United States as the principal force, came to the aid of South Korea. China came to the aid of North Korea, and the Soviet Union also gave assistance to the North.
Korea was ruled by Imperial Japan from 1910 until the closing days of World War II. In August 1945, one day after the bombing of Nagasaki, the Soviet Union declared war on Imperial Japan, as a result of an agreement with the United States, and liberated Korea, a line was drawn on the 38th parallel, dividing Korea into two sections. U.S. forces occupied the south. By 1948, as the Cold War between the Soviet Union, and the United States escalated, Korea was split into two regions, with separate governments. Both claimed to be the legitimate government of Korea, and neither recognized the border as permanent.
The conflict escalated into open warfare when western sources reported that North Korean forces, supported by the Soviet Union and China, moved into the south June 25th, 1950. On June 27th, the United Nations Security Council authorized the formation and dispatch of UN forces to South Korea to repel North Korean forces. Twenty-one countries of the United Nations eventually contributed to the UN force, with the United States providing 88% of the military personnel.
After only two months, South Korean, the U.S. and UN forces were on the point of defeat. In September 1950, an amphibious UN counter-offensive was launched at Incheon, and cut off many North Korean troops. Those who escaped were forced north. UN forces approached the Yalu River, the border between Korea and China, but in October 1950, massive Chinese forces crossed the Yalu and entered the war. The surprise Chinese intervention triggered a retreat of UN forces which continued until mid-1951.
After China entered the war on behalf of North Korea, Seoul changed hands four times. Jet fighters confronted each other in air-to-air combat for the first time in history, and Soviet pilots covertly flew in defense of their communist allies.
The fighting ended on July 27th, 1953, when an armistice was signed. The agreement created the Korean Demilitarized Zone to separate North and South Korea, and allowed the exchange of prisoners. No peace treaty has ever been signed, and according to some sources the two Koreas are technically are still at war.
During the war thousands of women and children were killed, as usual the Allies raped and plundered their way through a country that had seen enough of western “democracy.” As the war raged on, children were the target of suspicion, endless bombing campaigns were suffered by the North. The maniacal McArthur marched to the beat of his own drum, plundering and netting huge sums through occupation. Many raped women became impregnated with Allied seed, all to be abandoned and left to fend for themselves. What the Americans saw back home was the Jew Bob Hope making appearances, and jokes about the dead. Marilyn Monroe was dragged into the war, brought over for “moral” purposes.
America, and its allies defeat in the Korean War remains as pointed as their defeat in Viet Nam, and the numerous wars in the Middle East. The America media does much to display a banner of victory, but the truth is far more evident. America starts wars, but almost never seems to be able to finish them.
