3 Many wonder why historical things happen, although no one really has the answer. Events that happen or may have happened often have an impact on future events. Ever since the 1950’s all the way to the 1990’s, many events happened. Many of them included social, economic and political events. Almost all of the events that happened throughout these years have impacted how the world is today. Throughout the past five decades, many of the historical things that have happened have had effects on the way the world is today and the things yet to happen. The Korean War – 1950’s During the 1950’s many social, economic and political events happened. One of the biggest during this time was the Korean War. The Korean War began on June 25, 1950 and ended on July 27, 1953. The two major parties of this war were North and South Korea. The war began because South Korea refused to hold elections based on North Koreas wants and demands. In the pre-dawn hours of June 25, 1950, North Korea invaded South Korea. North Korea took time in planning their evasion on South Korea, as well as time in what weapons they would be using in their fight. Unfortunately, South Korea was outnumbered in both manpower and firepower. At the time of North Korea invading South Korea, the United States had forces in Japan. Since the United States opposed North Koreas plans, they decided the best thing to do would be to help South Korea. A second reason for the United States helping South Korea was to avoid communism. The United States made the decision to bomb North Korea’s oil refineries as well as their seaports to prevent them from receiving supplies, basically cutting off any and all supplies so that South Korea could have a chance in actually fighting the war.

4 With the United States as reinforcement, South Korea was able to intimidate North Korea. In October of 1950, the United State crossed into North Korea and took over 135,000 prisoners. By doing this, it caused a decrease in the number soldiers in the North Korean army. Also around this time, China began supplying North Korea with their war needs. The United States tried to bomb the ways that North Korea was receiving these resources, therefore causing China to intervene in the war.
