Tomorrow we join the war against the US and South Korea!
The Korean War (1950-1953) began when the North Korean Communist army crossed the 38th Parallel and invaded non-Communist South Korea. As Kim Il-sung's North Korean army, armed with Soviet tanks, quickly overran South Korea, the United States came to South Korea's backing.

The Fighting Comes to a StopJuly 27, 1953
Communist China joined North Korea in the war in October 1950, unleashing a massive Chinese ground attack against American forces. On the other hand the Soviet Union also secretly supported North Korea.
After three years of fighting, the war ended in a stalemate with the border between North and South Korea near where it had been at the war's beginning.
Fighting ended on 27 July 1953, with an armistice that approximately restored the original boundaries between North and South Korea. Korea was devastated. Around three million civilians and soldiers had been killed.
North and South Korea are still separated today, South Korea is still democratic and North Korea is still communist.
