You must have never bothered reading history books.   America didn't invade North Korea; rather,  ...

Please educate yourself on Asian history before making inaccurate comments.

The Korean War was an episode in the Cold War.   It seemed to be a war between South and North Korea, but America and Russia were using it to fight without having a ‘hot war’.
The USA went to war in Korea for three reasons.   The first reason was the ‘Domino theory’ – China turned Communist in 1949 and Truman feared that the next ‘domino’ would be Japan.   The second was to undermine Communism and protect the American way of life – in 1950 the American National Security Council recommended that America start 'rolling back' Communism.   Thirdly, Truman realised the USA was in a competition for world domination with the USSR.
Russia went to war because Stalin wanted Communism to grow.   In 1949, Kim Il Sung persuaded Stalin and Mao Tse Tung to support an invasion of South Korea.
In 1950, Syngman Rhee threatened to attack North Korea.   It was an excuse – the trigger for war.

Lol.  I bet that you must have visited a website called johndclare.net, which hawks rumors and  makes  trumped-up  charges against Western nations. I also  found the same statement on that website. Lol. Are you a copy cat or someone named johndclare? Care to tell me who's johndclare?

  Let me educate you by telling you what happened in both Koreas. North Korea invaded South Korea on  June 25th 1950 with a view to annexing South Korea or fighting a rearguard action against America, which was the backer of South Korea. Likewise,  The Soviet Union and China were the allies of North Korea; both nations sent food aid and military supplies to North Korea, where poverty was compounded by bureaucracy and totalitarianism.

  In retrospect, the reason behind its decision to invade South Korea is very clear now. We have good reason to believe that North Korea had received repeated assurances from the Soviet Union that the Soviet Unione would back North Korea's invasion of South Korea by sending weapons or even troops to South Korea to deter America from  helping South Korea stave off North Korea's invasion, er, before North Korea invaded South Korea.

  You know what happened later on? America jumped into the war along with South Korea and scared off the invader to the gills, so much so that North Korea troops nearly  retreated to its dividing line with South Korea  or its border with China. Upon realizing that America's armed forces were approaching its border with North Korea,  the shell-shocked China decided to join the war because it thought America  might attack China after  subjugating North Korea. Tellingly, its conviction that America would attack China was reinforced by Douglas MacArthur's  perceived arrogance and belligerence  toward the Chinese and related rumors hustled by the Soviet Union, which played the role of an agitator As a result, instigated by the Soviet Union and embittered by Douglas MacArthur's bravado, China summoned  all its competitive troops to go to North Korea to fend off the so-called American invasion.

  I think we don't need to belabor what happened thereafter since we all know the outcome. Yeah, at the time,  the UN sided with America and some UN members also dispatched troops to South Korea. Yet there is no evidence that to back up your claim that they were trying to destroy socialism. You may have heard it in the papers that then there were many socialistic nations that were much bigger than North Korea, particularly the  nations located in Eastern Europe. So why North Korea?

  You know what I'm trying to tell you? The Soviet Union was the mastermind behind this despicable event, and North Korea was merely its puppet.  The motive behind  it was the Soviet Union's  attempts to pit China against America by  creating a crisis  between the two nations. In so doing, China would ask for its help  when China  had to take on a big power like America. China was also the victim because it was totally in the dark until China's leaders were informed by North Korea that it had already taken military action against  South Korea.

  You can find lots of TV shows featuring this event in China. They can also be found on lots of websites that even have close links to the Chinese government.

  So do you think the Chinese are lying when they say it was North Korea invaded South Korea  than the other way around? I think you must be another rumor-monger like that Robert.  Please respect history and the truth.

I know you're afraid to deal in reality. You are a pampered stooge and nobody can take you seriously.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
