Korea Ruled by Japan since 1910, at the end of the war it was divided at the 38th parallel. Russia influencing the North and the US influencing the South.
Korea On June 25, 1950, North Korean troops followed by Soviet made tanks crossed the 38th parallel. –Truman saw the assault as a test of containment and ordered air and naval forces to Korea— without the approval of Congress. He then asked for aid from the UN –The UN backed Truman. –UN troops, led by the U.S., drove the North Koreans back to the 38th parallel. General MacArthur persuaded Truman to let him attempt to unify Korea. MacArthur ignored warnings from Mao to back off and crossed into China. Chinese troops came into conflict, pushing the UN troops back across the 38th parallel. MacArthur thought that Truman should have used Nuclear weapons against North Korea; Truman fired MacArthur.
–Korea ended with Eisenhower and a ceasefire in –Korean War impact Settled little. Remained divided geographically and politically.

Eisenhower Elected in 1952; a WWII hero; nickname “Ike” Stalin had died and Nikita Khrushchev had taken his place as leader in the Soviet Union Korean War ended in 1954 with a ceasefire. Eisenhower was very anti-communist and strong in world affairs.
New Strategy for Cold War –Truman depended on armies and navies to limit wars, but Eisenhower relied on cheaper air power and nuclear weapons. Late 1952, Truman had the first H-bomb test—nicknamed Mike-on a coral island in the South Pacific. –Pledged to meet aggression with massive retaliation- instant nuclear attack. –He had American military bases and allies circle the Soviet Union and China. –This new foreign policy was called brinkmanship – the art of never backing down from a crisis. This posed two problems: »Gave U.S. two choices- fight a nuclear battle or do nothing »Also, it led the Soviets to develop more powerful bombs, what Churchill called a “balance of terror.”
Soviet nuclear ability August 1949, the Soviet Union joins the nuclear club. July 1953, Soviets explode an H-bomb in Siberia.
Work for peace –He approved of the biggest H-bomb ever tested Bravo (Marshall Islands) on March 1, 1954, but he also proposed the “atoms for peace” plan to the U.N. –Radioactive fallout from H-bomb tests in the southern hemisphere led people worldwide to clamor for a halt in the arms race. –Met with Soviet leaders, in Geneva, Switzerland, to discuss disarmament. Meeting did not resolve much, except to get the two superpowers talking again.
How did the arms race become a global issue?
Freeze 1955 and into 1956 the cold war seemed to be thawing. Khrushchev spoke of a world where capitalism and communism could live together. –Two events revived tension with the Soviets Soviet troops went in to Hungary to put down revolt. (1956) Launching of Sputnik (fall of 1957)- which led to the U.S. starting National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) (1959) –In 1963, Soviets and U.S. bowed to a growing world outcry and signed a test-ban treaty prohibiting nuclear testing in the atmosphere. Underground testing allowed and in outer space.
Military – Industrial Complex The U.S. and Soviet continued to stock pile arms. Interwoven military establishment and arms industry. “In the councils of government we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence…by the military- industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes.? --President Dwight Eisenhower, Farewell Speech, 1961 **What is President Eisenhower saying in this quote
