MacArthur found supporters in Congress. Truman fired MacArthur for challenging his authority as commander in chief. MacArthur returned to the United States for a rousing, hero's welcome before crowds in New York City and Washington, D.C. He addressed a joint session of Congress, where he justified his conduct in Korea and his bold plan for fighting communism. Many congressmen applauded MacArthur's plans. However, a subsequent congressional investigation concluded that MacArthur had violated his orders from the commander in chief. Omar Bradley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, emphasized that MacArthur risked involving the United States in a large-scale Asian land war against China, and possibly the Soviet Union, as well. It would be "the wrong war, at the wrong place, at the wrong time, and with the wrong enemy," concluded Bradley.
Why did Truman not let MacArthur invade North Korea?
Truman did not grant permission to MacArthur to invade North Korea for it would aggravate China and get the United States into an even longer war within Asia. Many members of the UN had also pressured the United States to not further its involvement in Korea which furthered Truman to disallow MacArthur to invade North Korea.
