The firing of General MacArthur by Pres. Truman was stupid and irresponsible. General MacArthur wanted to bomb Red China in to oblivion with nuclear bombs at that time. Red China did not have a nuclear capability at that time. It does now and is the world's largest exporter of illegal drugs in the world according to the IC&E. A large portion of these Red Chinese drugs are smuggled into the U. S. to destroy American lives. The money from this illegal "trade" is used to fuel the massive Red Chinese military machine. Had Pres. Truman not fired the General, Red China would never have become the power that it is today. At that time Red China joined North Korea in attacking South Korea and the defending American forces. At first the Americans and South Koreans were overwhelmed by the massive numbers of Chinese troops. Had the U. S. knocked out the Red Chinese with nuclear weapons right then and there, then we wouldn't have the Red Chinese giving us so much problems today. The U. S. Congress should have impeached Truman before he had a chance to fire MacArthur. Russia would never have dared to attack the U. S. to defend their ally, the Red Chinese. They knew at that time that their country, Russia, would be utterly destroyed by us in a nuclear exchange. That is why Kennedy was able to stand up to Kruschev during the Cuban missile crisis in 1962. The Russians knew that they would be utterly destroyed by the U. S. in a nuclear exchange. Today, Russia, North Korea, and Red China are supplying Iran with nuclear know how and missile technology. A lot of what we know is happening in Iran is unknown, because a lot of the labs, and nuclear development is being conducted under massive under ground bunkers, that even block buster bombs would have a hard time knocking out. Nuclear missiles would be the best weapons to blow up these bunkers. We should let Israel defend itself by letting it attack Iran's nuclear facilities. We also should conduct a surgical strike against North Korea's nuclear facilities, before they really launch a missile against the U. S. Why are we so chicken livered that we are so afraid to defend our freedom?

i do not know that's why im asking
Korean and Vietnam Wars.
The NATO , Warsaw pact, Korean and Vietnam war
Cause=Communist aggression in both wars effect= War result=Korean War/allied victory; Vietnam War/Communist victory
They were both "hot battles" of the cold war (against communism).
NATO, military blocs and the Warsaw Pact were short term effects of the cold war. It led to conflicts such as the Vietnam War.
North Korea, often called the Hermit Kingdom, has remained largely isolated from the rest of the world, following the Korean War. This has not been healthy for North Korea.
nothing happened ur all retartds
1. Cause-Communist aggression 2. Effect-War War=Self explanatory
The main after-effects were: The Korean War (1950-1953) & the Vietnam War (1961-1975).
The long term effects were foreign policy and military build-up. The short term effects were racism towards Japanese and war jobs.
Stopping communist aggression and preserving the ROK (Republic of South Korea).
poverty, separation among friends and families, death, sickness, DMZ, and much more... thanks for caring:)
The Korean War (1950 - 1953) was the first major military conflict of the Cold War, and it confirmed to the US that the USSR was their enemy. This hostility lasted until the fall of communism in 1990.
It was on the Korean Peninsula. That's why it is called the Korean War.
South Korea was rebuilt to what it is today; a highly industrialized nation.
Korea remains a divided nation with a communist North and a free South.
The initial crossing of Korea over the 38th pannel
The Korean War was followed by the Vietnam War.
The Red Scare was a by-product of that war. Otherwise, the only "real" concern was the hope that it didn't go nuclear.
The war of the Korean lol
