China enters the battle because they are afraid they might get attacked. China helps North Korea push the The United States of America back to South Korea. This is the second way the The United States of America contained communism because the battle ended in July 27, 1953 and the border stayed at the 38 parallel. The strategy the The United States of America used was military because the The United States of America military helped South Korea in the battle to keep the border where it was in the
Perhaps caught by surprise, the NKPA had no choice but to retreat, with the US driving them back and recapturing South Korea. The defensive war soon became an offensive one: it was a war to weed out communism, to liberate the North from the communists. (But, as they will eventually realize, it is one thing to try to contain the spread of communism, and should they go a step further to try to expel communism out of the system, they ought to be prepared for the escalation that would
Although the U.S and the Soviet Union had formed a military alliance to defeat a mutual enemy, the two nations – ideologically extremely different – remained cautious of the other. United States’ democratic ideals contradicted that of the authoritarian and communist Stalin, leading to increased tension between the two nations. The conflict between the two opposing ideologies escalated as the Cold War dawned upon the nations. Military, although never used to fight the other nation directly, was used to fight proxy wars in other countries; as both nations tried to defend their ideals and prevent the spread of the others’ ideology/sphere of influence aggressively (Lippman, 25). Proxy wars were fought in Korea, Greek, Afghanistan and Vietnam (Hurst, 130).
For many years, The Cold War was the issue of a fierce debate regarding who or what exactly was the reason that caused it. On this subject, there are three schools of thought: the traditionalists, the revisionists and the post-revisionists. The traditionalists blame Joseph Stalin and the Soviet Union’s expansionist and violent diplomacy for being the starters of the war. “Besides violating the agreements made at the Yalta Conference in February 1945, Stalin completely disregarded the United Nations because he intended to expand and dominate his sphere of influence in Eastern Europe.” (Nye 118). The revisionists kept insisting on blaming the American expansionism rather than the Soviet Union’s wish to spread communism into Eastern Europe.
Nationalism creates a division in society as nations begin belonging to their own specific classes. The mindset of divided nations and conquering those of less worth, led to the necessity of militarism. That militaristic mindset, promoted aggression and approved violence. Militarism was funded on the idea of building a strong military in comparison to other, especially the neighboring nations (“The 4 Main Causes of World War One”). It created a culture of paranoia and a lust/need for competition, to prove their nations worth; which resulted in a larger pressure to act out aggression.
Newsmakers). In contrast, this fact is not a widely adapted belief in the country of North Korea. Kim Jong-Il was born to his father, Kim Il Sung, and his mother, Kim Jon Suk. Preceding Kim Jong-Il’s birth, Kim Il Sung, the former leader of North Korea, was involved with war-like issues with Japan, and fled to the Soviet Union. Kim Jon Suk birthed Kim Jong-Il here, but the North Korean government/country believed otherwise.
Comparison between WW1 and WW2. Ali Hamza 5B (4) 1.How and why they began One of the differences between World War 1 and 2 is how and why they began.

The Korean War was a war between communism and democracy of the two separated Koreas. In 1950, the Korean War, a war supported with allies from all over the world, began when North Korea invaded the South. Canada, one of the significant allies of South Korea, was of major importance when defending the South from the communist North.

The purpose of this essay is to answer the statement; “Examine Canada’s contribution to the Korean War”.
The Cold War soon begins after the end of WW2 when Truman, the successor of Roosevelt became president in 1945 due to ideological differences between the two superpowers, United States and the Soviet Union. The Cold War had a massive impact on US politics as could be seen through the creation of political consensus between the Republican and Democrats in relation to the policy of containment that includes the Marshall plan, the establishment of the NATO, the NSC-68 report and also the Truman Doctrine as the response of George Kennan’s containment theory, which caused US politics to be specifically targeted at the Soviet Union. While there are political consensus to contain Communism, the Cold War had primarily polarised politics when McCarthy
The Civil War was fought because of rising tension between the North and the South. The war came to an end 1865. The last official battle was at Palmito Ranch.

Southerners seceded from the United States in an effort to keep what they felt was economically necessary and essential to their way to life.
