Will Smith Mr. Beecher AP Euro Period 3 25 May 2014 Conflict on the Korean Peninsula Ever since North and South Korea were created after World War Two North Korea has been trying to conquer South Korea which has caused the Koreas to be in constant conflict. The Korean conflict has detrimentally hurt the lives of the Korean people but more so the people of North Korea. North Korea's aggression to South Korea has caused for many nations from around the world to become involved. The conflicts originated with Japan occupying all of Korea in 1910 (Korea). After the Second World War Japan was required to relinquish control of Korea and the states of North and South Korea were born (Korea).
Following World War II, capitalist countries were having tense relations with communist ones and ideological conflict grew to encompass the globe. In an effort to achieve philosophical domination, Russia and China pressured another communist nation, North Korea, to cross the 38th parallel into their neighboring South Korea, a nation supported by the US. This became a major problem and the US had to intervene. War was waged with many countries coming into play. In 1953, however, both sides signed an armistice or treaty to stop fighting.
