Question and answer
define North Korea attacks: June 24, 1950
On Sunday, June 24, 1950, North Korean troops invaded South Korea with little warning. At the time, the U.S. Army had fewer than 600,000 soldiers and half of those were based in the states. [ Yet, the Truman administration had pledged to oppose expansion of Communism, even if it had issued confusing statements about Korea itself. In 1950, the North Koreans attacked with over 90,000 troops and
150 tanks. President Truman immediately ordered Gen. Douglas MacArthur to send U.S. troops from Japan to protect Americans in Seoul, but just as quickly decided to approach the United Nations for a response. The U.S. was helped out by the fact that Russia was boycotting the UN in a dispute over admitting the Communist Chinese as the legitimate government of China. So, Russia couldn't veto the resolution authorizing the UN to send troops. On June 27, that resolution was approved. On June 28, the South Korean capitol of Seoul fell. On June 30, Truman authorized U.S. troops to lead the UN force. ]
