The occupation by the US of territory already decided by the Potsdam and Yalta Conferences.
...

The NK broke that agreement by attacking the South. They then lost all claims to legitimacy.
The UN forces then would have gotten rid of the oppressive NK government had it not been for the interference of China.

China already shared borders with many countries, was its government so incompetent and incapable of sharing a border with a South Korean type state of that era ?

That becomes just pure rhetoric.

It was still a civil war.

There were many scuffles long the border.

Many Koreans both N & S staged violent actions because they wanted independence.


so incompetent and incapable of sharing a border


Who can say.  It was certainly not a case of a free America and democracy.

The proof of the pudding would be the US invasion and intervention of Vietnam et al.

A pointless war to kill communists.

Millions died for nothing.


Who was the aggressor?



China?

The Chinese civil war was all but over in China in the early 50’s to mid-50’s and still the US funded and rebuilt the KMT and then started to fund anti-Chinese movements in Tibet.  This moved into the stage of rebellion in 1956 by land owners and the bourgeoisie in outer Tibet and the rebellions were put down.

The rebels fled to inner or what is known as political Tibet.  Funding and training from the US carried on in effort to dislodge the Chinese and create a US friendly territory.  At this stage the US is in an underhand war with the Communist government of China using the CIA as a banker and actively looking for ways to destabilize China.

As early as 1950, military advisers started arriving in Vietnam and this was to be the pre-cursor for the war against the communist and was to spread to Laos and Cambodia.  This would cost millions of lives and finally ended in 1975 with a total defeat of the US and its allies.

What was notable about this war was not only was it an unjust war but the underhand methods and gross lies given to the US public by all successive Presidents to the US public. An example of this can be seen in the ‘Pentagon Papers’ (Google it)

By 1971 the US was more than aware of the might of the USSR and also of the cold relations between the USSR and China. This started to happen in 1971 through what was known as ‘Ping Pong Diplomacy’ and this opened the way for President Nixon to visit China in February 1972.  After this meeting relations with China were immediately restored and the PRC took their rightful place as a permanent member of the UN.

Ahh, the master of ignorance and irrelevance makes his pathetic contribution.

Now to what "disastrous relationship" incident involving Indonesia are you referring ?

The one where Indonesia illegally invaded a new sovereign nation (Timor Leste) ?
The incident where 5 Australian based journalists were murdered by Indonesian troops in Timor ?
The one where Indonesia illegitimately took control of West Papua through the thoroughly discredited "act of free choice" ?
or could it have been the one where 88 Australians and over 100 other innocent holiday makers were murdered by Indonesian extremists ?

Or could it be the provocative actions by Australia where we built a burns unit at a hospital in Bali after the terrorist attacks in 2002, or where we donated 500 MILLION dollars and lent another 500 million following the Asian tsunami ?

Engage your brain, Northwest, before putting your mouth in gear.
