Help repel “invaders” and restore international peace

— the Korean War in 1950

the Korean Peninsula is located in the southeast of the Asian continent, like a prominent trunk, from the north of the Asian continent to the southeast between the Yellow Sea and the sea of Japan in the Pacific Ocean. After World War II, North Korea was not the key strategic zone of the United States in the world strategy of the United States. However, here, the first large-scale ground war conducted by the United States after World War II occurred, which had a significant impact on the Far East and even the whole international situation.

North Korea has been brutally exploited and oppressed by Japanese imperialism for a long time since it became a colony of Japan in 1910. In 1945, Japan’s defeat was decided, and the two former allies of the United States and the Soviet Union began to play their own small calculations. In July 1945, at the POC í Tan conference, for the convenience of the Soviet Union’s war against Japan, the Soviet Union and the United States agreed to take the 38th parallel of north latitude as the dividing line of the operational areas of the two countries. On August 15 of the same year, in view of the strong offensive of the Soviet Union in the Far East, the United States once again proposed to accept the surrender of the Japanese army by zoning with the 38th parallel of north latitude as the boundary. At the end of the war, the 38th degree line actually became the dividing line between the two military occupied areas of the United States and the Soviet Union.

Soviet troops withdrew from North Korea in 1948, but the United States was unwilling to give up South Korea as a bridgehead to block communism. Regardless of the desire of the Korean people to establish an independent and unified country, it has taken a series of actions to split Korea. On August 15, 1948, with the support and direction of the United States, the south of Korea established a separate “Korean government”. Lee Seung Wan, who had lived in the United States for many years, was promoted to the presidency by the United States. That year, under the manipulation of the United States, the Third UN General Assembly adopted a resolution recognizing the “government of the Republic of Korea”. Subsequently, the United States signed the Korea US interim military agreement and the Korea US economic assistance agreement with the South Korean regime. In view of the new situation of the United States undermining the national independence of the DPRK, the people of Northern Korea had to take corresponding countermeasures. On September 9, 1948, the “Democratic People’s Republic of Korea” headed by Kim Il was established. Since then, a complete DPRK has been divided into two.

the two governments of North and South Korea do not recognize and oppose each other. Kim Il Sung is eager to turn the south of the “38th parallel” into a red world. Truman and Lee Seung Wan want to insert the “Tai Chi Flag” throughout the Korean Peninsula. The contradiction between the two sides is deepening day by day, and the war is imminent.

at dawn on June 25, 1950, there was a sudden loud gunfire near the “38th line”, and a large-scale battle broke out in the fresh army. On the same day, in order to support its “little brother”, the United States manipulated the United Nations Security Council to adopt a resolution in the absence of the representative of the Soviet Union, accusing the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea of being an “aggressor”. At the same time, Truman immediately convened a meeting of military and political dignitaries to set the tone of military intervention in the Korean War. Worried about the possibility of World War III caused by the Soviet Union’s participation in the war, CIA director Dulles suggested that if you really need to participate in the war, you should rely on the United Nations. The course of the

war greatly surprised the US authorities. Lee Seung Wan’s army, supported by the United States, was simply vulnerable. In just three days, North Korea approached Seoul, the capital of South Korea. Li CHENGWAN sent Truman a letter for help, saying that he had moved the government out of Seoul and that Seoul was about to lose its security. The commander in chief of the US forces in the far east sent an urgent telegram to Truman, asking the US military to join the war immediately. On June 28, Truman convened another meeting of military and political dignitaries. As soon as the meeting was over, he called MacArthur and asked him to use naval and air forces to support the troubled South Korean forces. However, considering the Soviet Union and China, Truman asked that no action be taken north of the “38th parallel”. The operation was called “police operation” by Truman.

this is a separate action taken by the US military, but Truman put on the cloak of the United Nations. At a briefing held by congressional leaders convened by the White House, Truman lied: “the United States was entrusted by the United Nations to ask Member States to provide assistance to South Korea to help repel the invaders and restore international peace and security in the Far East.” At this time, the UN Security Council has not yet convened. Truman’s lie has also become a “legitimate” excuse for the United Nations led by the United States to launch an attack on North Korea.

however, the US military underestimated the strength of the North Korean army. After the US 24th division, the 1st Cavalry Division and the 25th Division set foot on the Korean Peninsula, they set foot on the road of fleeing south with Li CHENGWAN’s troops within a few days. By early July, the US and South Korean troops had only Daegu, Busan and other strongholds left.

in order to reverse the decline on the battlefield, on July 7, the United States manipulated the United Nations Security Council to pass an emergency resolution by taking advantage of the fait accompli of the “police operation” of the United Nations in the name of the Soviet Union, which immediately formed a “United Nations command”, “which uses the flag of the United Nations army”, At the same time, it authorized the “commander designated by the United States” to command and command the troops of various countries participating in the military action against North Korea, thus providing a “legal basis” for the United States and its allies to intervene in North Korea. On July 8, Truman appointed MacArthur as commander in chief of the “United Nations army” in accordance with the resolution of the United Nations Security Council. Soon, the “United Nations army” composed of the armies of 15 countries including Britain, France, Australia and Canada was handed over to MacArthur.

on September 15, 1950, the US military landed in Incheon, central Korea under the banner of “United Nations army”, and suddenly stuck the throat of North and South Korea, and the battlefield situation was greatly reversed. Blinded by the victory, Truman approved MacArthur’s plan to “take military action north of the 38th parallel”. MacArthur burned the war all the way to the Yalu River. In this serious case, China, which knows the truth, sent volunteer troops to North Korea on October 25. After five arduous battles, the Chinese and Korean troops completely smashed the attempt of the “United Nations army” to destroy the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and stabilized the front near the “38th parallel”.

on July 10, 1951, the two sides began armistice negotiations. After more than two years of talks and fightingThe agreement on the Korean military armistice was finally signed on July 27, 1953. So far, the three-year Korean War ended. The war of

had a far-reaching impact. The war not only greatly damaged the vitality of the United States, but also plummeted its international reputation. On the contrary, the Chinese and Korean armed forces have not only safeguarded national security and independence, but also promoted the movement and development of world peace and improved international prestige and status. After the war, Bradley, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of staff, said dejectedly, “we fought the wrong war with the wrong enemy at the wrong time and in the wrong place.”
