Communism in China
The Korea war started on June 25, 1950. This happened when the North Korean army invaded South Korea in an attempt to turn them to communism. The United States got involved on South Korea's side and took over major cities in North Korea. The United States didn't want communism to spread, which is called Containment of Communism. The US was doing good until China came to North Korea's aid with more than 120,000 troops. The war ended in July 1953 and Korea was still divided into two parts at the 38th parallel, just like how it was before the war. The US was happy enough that containment halfway worked because South Korea was not turned into a communist country.
