Read your History. I see opinions based on Today's news not a knowledge of History. Korea was one Country and the U. S. Split into two. The U. S. Could of assisted the whole country to Heal. Today we could be looking at one Healthy country and not one bitter one. Read the events of the U. N. Decision The Korean War Catchpole, Brian. As well Bruce Cummings details the events that led to the War in his book(s). The U. N. Did not wait for the Soviet to be present. An attempt to stem Communism at the cost, The devastation of a country. A valid attempt of Peace was not pursued. Written but not pursued. What right did any other country have to split Korean and not let them decide their fate. Many other countries had Civil wars. ( The U. S. Did not interfere in Spain ). It was their country not the U. N. S and U. S. A. S to play politics with. ;
During this time we must understand that we pretty much raised wars against countries that thought that turning to communism would be best for them. We pulled the UN into this war for the purpose of stopping more countries from becoming communist. The major issues with this idea is that it was wrong.
Well, yes. We were the driving force behind what we liked to call a "police action" at the time. It was in support of the old domino theory to stop Communism from spreading throughout the world. At that particular point in history, the United Nations was basically a puppet front for the US to advance its interests.
No, I do not think that the United Nations' support of the Korean War was motivated solely by the political interests of the United States, because there are undeniable human atrocities that are happening in North Korea. Not only does North Korea oppress its own people, but they also continue to threaten the south.
the representation of Nations in the United Nations is high enough acting in the political interests of a certain country is unlikely to occur her on such a grand scale. For the Korean War nations like China and Japan my quest divergent views on the appropriate measures to be taken and they would have been able to create a significant amount of opposition to impede the United States if they desired.
I do not believe the United Nations' support of the Korean War was motivated solely by the political interests of the United States. The North was displaying a lot of problems we still see out of the regime today, there were far better reasons to support it, beyond political interests.
