Korea was a UN trust territory administered by Russia north of the 38th parallel and by the US south of the 38th parallel following WW-2.
There were supposed to be nationwide elections throughout the whole of Korea to elect a national government [ but the US would not allow the elections and instead created the "Republic of South Korea" despite the objections of the UN, and about five months later the Russian created the "Peoples Republic of North Korea".
The UN still administered the security of the "Demilitarized Zone".
One side invaded the other in June 1950 with the North being accused of invading the South, although there is some documentary evidence that it was the opposite. Two Australian military officers attached to the UN DMZ team, a Naval Lt. Commander and an Army Major plus a British diplomat did an inspection of both sides of the DMZ in the days leading up to the start of the fighting. They found NO military build-up or troop movements in the North BUT found large troop movements and build-up in the South. Their reports were sent to the UN and their respective governments but the reports were never produced at the UN Security Council meeting that voted on the sending of the troops into Korea.

why did the united states support the invasionWeegy:
The US didn't support it, the US invented it. The invasion was a contingency plan of the Eisenhower administration and altered to ensure failure by the Kennedy administration. It then went off half-cocked, and the US backed out. [ The US had a special interest in Cuba, and had been trying to figure out something to do with it since 1898, but government officials being government officials, it never occured to any of them to let the Cubans sort it out for themselves. Of course, there were huge business interests at stake, and Castro eventually nationalized a lot of US businesses, who took a soaking. That's never good in American politics, where money talks. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/?qid=20080521201745AAEbubN
