What is Communism

Communism is when there is no social class and everyone is equal and have the same things such like checks, homes, and anything really. Also no one owns anything, everything is owned by the government, no free choices of a job you want and if there is then it wouldn't matter how hard you worked cause you'll just get the same pay as everyone else.

Korean War

The Korean War was where the country of Korea fought for different government systems. On June, 1950, North Korea wanted to unite all of Korea under communist ways. They had captured Seoul in no more than a week, however, the United Nations and The United States had sided with South Korea and their democratic rule. They kept going back and forth with taking land until U.S. troops had gotten further and further to capturing all of a North Korea. This was until the Chinese showed, the Chinese began to think that once the U.S. captured all of North Korea, they would try and take on China, spreading democracy. The sides continued to fight on the 38th parallel. After 2 years of this, on July 27, 1953, there was an agreement signed stating that Korea would be divided at the 38th parallel

Vietnam war

The Vietnam War lasted from 1959 to 1975. The Vietnam War was the prolonged struggle between nationalist forces attempting to unify the country of Vietnam under a communist government and the United States (with the aid the South Vietnamese) attempting to prevent the spread of communism. More than 3 million people including 58,000 American soldiers. It was a military conflict in which communist forces of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam and Viet Cong( South Vietnam) fought against the anti-communist Republic of Vietnam and its allies—most notably the United States in an effort to unify Vietnam into a single state that would be based on communist ideology. The chief cause of the war cause was Ho Chi Minh’s desire to establish a single Vietnamese state.
