The Korean War cast a dark shadow on the “Allies” of WW2. Where the USA had oversold the Soviet unx through propaganda as our WW2 ally, the truth was now out that Stalin had taken advantage of this alliance to expand communist expansion. China, which ha been our ally during WW2, had totally become Communist, and now with the world’s largest population of any nation, was now one of our newest enemies.
Truman who so casually allowed the atom bombs to be dropped on Japan and proclaiming it ended WW2, now was in fear of using the ultimate weapon when it was truly needed.
