u.s policy of containment and the korean war
Let's start off by first explaining what the U.S Policy of Containment was. The U.S Policy of Containment was a policy that was used to prevent the spread of communism. Communism is a theory or system of ownership of all property by the community or state. During the Korean War, North Korea invaded South Korea in hope to unite the two countries as one. However, this was the idea of communism. The U.S offered help to many nations to prevent the spread of communism. At one time, President Harry S. Truman went to Congress asking for $400 milllion to Greece and Turkey as military and economic assistance. Greece and Turkey were going to be overpowered by the Soviet Army. A similar event occurred during the Korean War. The U.S along with other nations joined the war in an effort to help support South Korea. NATO- also known as the North Atlantic Treaty Organization- also put forward effort to help the struggling nation. South Korea saw the numerous opportunities and was glad to take them. Due to the mass amount of support, North Korea had to with drew their plan-for the time being.
