The U.S. Air Strike of North Korea

that judging by history, the Korean people were not
yet ready for self-determination.

wars, both economically, mainly through arms sales, and politically,
by becoming a major player in the world stage, Americans
started to seriously contemplate a possibility of establishing a
world order with US dominance, thus a cold war against
its competing power, the Soviet Union, began. It was executed
in the name of defending its faith and ideology, but deep

Soviet Union, the US is still highly hostile toward Russia.
So that is how it is - as soon as the military conflict between
two regimes on the peninsular broke out on June 25, 1950,
