Who really started the Korean War?
>>
me
>>
The Japanese were ultimately responsible.
>>
>>13315263
USA by suppressing Koreans and setting up a colonial government
was Korea just supposed to do nothing?

None of the partitions post ww2 were supposed to be permanent; not Vietnam, not Korea, not Germany
Western powers simply moved unilaterally to create separate puppet states out of their half

>Western powers simply moved unilaterally to create separate puppet states out of their half
The 38th parallel was mutually agreed on by both the US and the USSR.
>>
>>13315555
...for a temporary custodianship while Korean state was estabilished
instead USA crushed native political movements, installed a military colonial government and then proceeded to set up a separate southern government made of handpicked cronies
>>
>>13315658
and that country they set up became a rich and prosperous and globally influential nation while the other one became an impoverished and failed state
>>
>>13315693
yeah, the south became an impoverished failed state lmao
the situation reversed after it begun to be heavily subsidized by the west and we got to the current state when the north was cut off from international trade

How different was this from the USSR and North Korea?
>>
>>13316577
It wasn't
>Vietnam, Korea, Germany
>Western powers simply moved unilaterally to create separate puppet states out of their half
>>
>>13315555
So no Koreans
>>
Usually it was the communists that started the hostilities.
>>13315320
By 1950 it was obvious that no one should trusts the Soviet Union. They promised free elections in Eastern Europe and we all know what happened - election frauds, coups, establishment of brutal communist regimes.
>>
>>13316589
Yes, but not unilaterally. The USSR was in in this.
>>
>>13315289
this guy

List of topics to read about: People's Republic of Korea, people's committees, USAMGIK vs Provisional People's Committee of North Korea

Uh, remind me again what happened in France and Italy?

soviets were building their buffer states: poland, bulgaria, hungary, estonia, latvia, etc
these states would provide a "buffer" between the soviets and the west
korea was going to be one more buffer state
the united nations disagreed
korea was just another buffer state
>>
>>13315305
That mostly China and USA, retard.
>>
>>13317666
you are comparing a state that is heavily subsidized by western powers buying up their products under preferential trade policies to one that is forced to be almost completely autarkic and trying to use the result as a point
i know it's hard being satan but there is no need to cope this much
