What caused the Korean War?

 Q:   Ask a Question about What caused the Korean War?       
What caused the Korean War? The Korean War happened in 1950 when North Korea, supported by the Communist Chinese regime, tried to overrun South Korea, which was allied to the United States. For the first time in its existence, the United Nations took military action -against North Korea. The war raged on, but neither side was able to claim victory.

Eventually a ceasefire was declared in 1953, with both sides ending up more or less where they had started. Technically North Korea and South Korea are still at war, although there has been no direct fighting for decades.

Following World War II Europe was divided into two: the Warsaw Pact to the east and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) to the west. Tension was high as the US and Russia struggled for nuclear supremacy. In 1962 the two countries came close to war.
