THE ORGIN OF THE KOREAN WAR When someone mentions the Korean War everyone knows that it was a civil war between the North and the South Korea But many dont know how it actually got started There are a lot of things that happened before the North Koreans decided to cross over the 38th parallel The Korean civil war was just a small part of the whole war The war also included more than just Koreans like other countries such as Japan China Russia and the United States In the nineteenth century Korea was just a small peasant society that paid tribute to the Chinese But when the Russian and Japanese imperialism made a huge effect on the China Korea was looked at differently By the end of the century Korea had become a prize in a three-way contest between China Russia and Japan In 1894 Japan defeated China thus eliminating them from the contest Then in 1905 Japan defeated Russia making them the dominant power in Korea In 1910 Japan took over Korea and made them into a Japanese colony After struggling for forty years as a Japanese colony Korea now had to struggle as a pawn in the newly created Cold War The Americans decided to land troops to occupy Korea at the end of the war as soon as they found out that the Russia was interested in overtaking the Korea as their sphere of interest The Soviet Unions occupying Korea would create and entirely new strategic situation in the Far East Though the Pentagon decided that interest towards Korea was not going to be a long-term interest to the US their view changed drastically within three weeks On August 10 1945 dropping of the Nagasaki bomb finalized the participation of the US occupation in Korea Unexpected by the United States the Soviet Union agreed to accept the 38th parallel as their limit of advance Russia and the United States
