1951 www.amazon.com Watch the full film: thefilmarchived.blogspot.com Within days of the invasion, masses of ROK Army soldiers—of dubious loyalty to the Syngman Rhee régime—were either retreating southwards or were defecting en masse to the north, to the KPA. Despite the rapid post--Second World War Allied demobilizations, there were substantial US forces occupying Japan; under General Douglas MacArthur's command, they could be made ready to fight the North Koreans. Only the British Commonwealth had comparable forces in the area. On Saturday, 24 June 1950, US Secretary of State Dean Acheson informed President Truman by telephone, "Mr. President, I have very serious news. The North Koreans have invaded South Korea." Truman and Acheson discussed a US invasion response with defense department principals, who agreed that the United States was obligated to repel military aggression, paralleling it with Adolf Hitler's 1930s aggressions, and said that the mistake of appeasement must not be repeated. In his autobiography, President Truman acknowledged that fighting the invasion was essential to the American goal of the global containment of communism as outlined in the National Security Council Report 68 (NSC-68) (declassified in 1975): "Communism was acting in Korea, just as Hitler, Mussolini and the Japanese had ten, fifteen, and twenty years earlier. I felt certain that if South Korea was allowed to fall Communist leaders would be emboldened to override nations closer to our ...

Veterans of the 1950-53 Korean War have been marking the 60th anniversary of the start of the conflict. An estimated three millions people died, many of them civilians, in one of the most brutal conflicts since the end of the Second World War. But despite the high death toll and its legacy of division on the Korean peninsula, the conflict has become known to many simply as the "forgotten war". Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley reports from Seoul. (June 25, 2010)
Korean war anniversary
UNFORGETTABLE: THE KOREAN WAR Premieres June 21 at 10 pm Eastern on PBS in recognition of the 60th anniversary of the conflict. "Unforgettable: The Korean War" is a powerful journey with Korean War veterans as they recall their memories and emotions of the war and of America in the late 1940s and early 1950s, when young men from all over the world were being shipped off to defend South Korea against the advancing Communist Army. "Unforgettable: The Korean War" revisits "the un-won war that never ended." No one even wanted to declare it a war: it was "The Korean Conflict," a "Police Action" and finally, "the Forgotten War." No matter the name, The Korean War was still a war, killing millions and affecting hundreds of thousands of lives here at home. UNFORGETTABLE: THE KOREAN WAR Run Time: 56:46 Produced by Arizona Public Media Pre-order the DVD at ShopPBS.org
Moscow is sending a team of specialists to investigate the sinking of a South Korean ship, amidst a deepening crisis between the two Koreas. Tensions escalated after an international investigation concluded a northern torpedo sank a South Korean warship in March - killing 46 sailors - an accusation vehemently denied by Pyonyang.
In the winter of 1950, 15000 US troops were surrounded and trapped by 120000 Chinese soldiers in the frozen mountains of North Korea. Refusing surrender, the men fought 78 miles to freedom and saved the lives of 98000 civilian refugees. After 60 years of silence, the survivors of the Chosin Reservoir Campaign of the Korean War take us on an emotional and heart-pounding journey through one of the most savage battles in American history. Produced by Iraq War veterans Brian Iglesias and Anton Sattler. Directed by Brian Iglesias. World Premiere at the 2010 GI Film Festival.

The Korean War Footage from Korean side The Korean War (1950~1953) Original Footage...(Korean Side) Although the United Nations received messages that the North Koreans were about to invade, all were rejected. The United States received less than two weeks notice of the Korean War—the Chinese-authorized, North Korean invasion of the South on 25 June 1950. The CIA provided the early notice; before the war, in early 1950, CIA China station officer Douglas Mackiernan received Chinese and North Korean intelligence forecasting the summer KPA attack on the South so as to unify the country. Earlier, after the US missions had left the communist People's Republic of China, he volunteered to remain and conduct spy operations. Afterward, he and a team of CIA local mercenaries then escaped the Chinese, in a months-long horse trek across the Himalaya mountains; he was killed within miles of Lhasa, Tibet — yet his team delivered the intelligence to headquarters. Thirteen days later, the North Korean People's Army (KPA) crossed the 38th-parallel border and invaded South Korea. Mackiernan was posthumously awarded the CIA Intelligence Star for valor. Under the guise of counter-attacking a South Korean provocation raid, the North Korean Army (KPA) crossed the 38th parallel, behind artillery fire, at Sunday dawn of 25 June 1950. The KPA said that Republic of Korea Army (ROK Army) troops, under command of the régime of the "bandit traitor Syngman Rhee", had crossed the border first—and that ...
This is the original footage of The Korean War (American side) Korean war 1950-1953 On Saturday, June 24, 1950, US Secretary of State Dean Acheson telephonically informed President Harry S. Truman, Mr. President, I have very serious news. The North Koreans have invaded South Korea. Truman and Acheson discussed a US invasion response with defense department principals, who agreed that the United States was obligated to repel military aggression, paralleling it with Adolf Hitler's 1930s aggressions, and said that the mistake of appeasement must not be repeated. President Truman acknowledged that fighting the invasion was pertinent to the American global containment of communism: "Communism was acting in Korea, just as Hitler, Mussolini and the Japanese had ten, fifteen, and twenty years earlier. I felt certain that if South Korea was allowed to fall Communist leaders would be emboldened to override nations closer to our own shores. If the Communists were permitted to force their way into the Republic of Korea without opposition from the free world, no small nation would have the courage to resist threat and aggression by stronger Communist neighbors." President Harry S. Truman announced that the US would counter "unprovoked aggression" and "vigorously support the effort of the [UN] security council to terminate this serious breach of peace." In Congress, the Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman, Gen. Omar Bradley warned against appeasement, saying that Korea was the place "for ...
As President Obama tries to get N. Korea to resume negotiations over its nuclear weapons program, many are wondering what would happen if these efforts were to fail. David Martin reports.
This video is of the Planes of Fame Museum's (Chino, California) own Mig-15 fighter. This Korean War era Mig-15 was actually manufactured in the Soviet Union, unlike the Chinese models which are the most common of the few Mig-15s that fly today in civilian hands. The pilot is Chris Fahey. According to Chris, the maintenance on this aircraft is very simple and, considering the limited hours that this aircraft logs each year, consists mainly of only topping off the engine lubricating oil a couple of times a year. However, the fuel consumption is just enormous which makes this aircraft not a cheap one to fly! This aircraft is flown several times a year, including the annual Planes of Fame Airshow at Chino in May. Chris in the Mig-15 and Steve Hinton in the museum's F-86F Sabre always put on a great air-to-air combat demonstration with those two great former Korean War adversaries !
