What was the leading cause of the Korean War?
The first reason was the 'Domino theory'. Salami tactics in eastern Europe was not the only place where Communists were coming to power. In the Far East, too, they were getting powerful - China turned Communist in 1949. Truman believed that, if one country fell to Communism, then others would follow, like a line of dominoes. He was worried that, if Korea fell, the next 'domino' would be Japan, which was very important for American trade. This was probably the most important reason for America's involvement in the war.
The second reason was just to try to undermine Communism. President Truman believed that capitalism, freedom and the American way of life were in danger of being overrun by Communism. The Truman Doctrine had been one of 'containment' - stopping the Communists gaining any more territory. In April 1950 the American National Security Council issued a report (NSC 68) recommending that America abandon 'containment' and start 'rolling back' Communism. This led Truman to consider driving the Communists out of North Korea.
Finally, Truman realized the USA was in a competition for world domination with the USSR. By supporting South Korea, America was able to fight Communism without directly attacking Russia.
Korean War, Vietnam War,
The cause of The Korean War was the invasion of Korea by Japanese forces. Other countries intervened to stop the Japanese from killing native Koreans.
Well the Korean War was basically the war between the North Korea and South Korea, as the name Korean War says, which meant that Koreans were the cause of the war and was the one that fought in war.
in June 1950, North Korean troops crossed the 38th parallel that separates North Korea from South Korea and was the cause for the Korean war (conflict)
Cause=Communist aggression in both wars effect= War result=Korean War/allied victory; Vietnam War/Communist victory

There was no winner. Instead, a stalemate developed leading to an armistice on July 27 1953.
The outcome of the Korean War was frustrating to U.S. because many of their sons & husbands had died it this conflict yet it ended in a stalemate.
If you are talking about America it is the American Civil War, but if you are talking about Korea, The Korean War
Yes; because it didn't last long enough to cause frustration.
It was on the Korean Peninsula. That's why it is called the Korean War.
One reason President Truman was against declaring war on China during the Korean war was because he was afraid that the Soviet Union might side with China. He thought it might cause the start of World War 3.
The Korean War was followed by the Vietnam War.
