The United States and the Korean War

The United States had a few central goals for its' part of the Korean War. The main goal was to protect South Korea from invasion and possible takeover by the North Koreans. This would achieve the second goal, which was the spread of communism.

In regards XXXXX XXXXX whether or not the United States achieved their goals, the answer is two fold. Yes, South Korea remained intact, meaning that it was not taken over by the North Koreans. However, there was never a formal peace agreement signed, only a cease fire. Technically speaking, a state of war still exists between the two countries and the tensions still run high. In addition, the goal of containing communism was not that successful. The only real victory was helping South Korea to not be run by North Korea.

The main negative effect of the Korean War for the United States was the conflict that it caused within our country. Many where against sending our soldiers to fight in the Korean War, this caused internal conflict. Then, there was the loss of lives for our soldiers, and the financial cost for our country. As for Korea, the negative effect was a feeling of answering to the United States in exchange for their involvement. There was also conflict between those in South Korea who felt they could win the war without the help of outside countries. Finally, another negative effect was the loss of civilXXXXX XXXXXves, in addition to soldiers lives and the damage done to their country.
