The Korean War started in 1950, when the North Koreans tried to invade the American-friendly country of South Korea. Their poorly trained troops, led by Kim Jong Il faced off against American troops, led by General MacArthur, and guess who won? America, of course!
War started on June 25th, 1950, when a bunch of North Korean farmers, armed with shovels and other assorted farming tools, charged across the border and into South Korea. Two minutes later, one American tank on border patrol duty in South Korea single handedly defeated all of the communist forces. The cowardly North Koreans quickly offered a peace treaty with America, and had also pledged to not develop nucular weapons.
The Korean War Part II coming this summer!
