Week 12 Reflection

Last week we learned about the Korean War, what caused it and the results of it. I watched a documentary that had the phrase “The Forgotten War” in the title. I thought this was interesting because the Korean War took place, but it is not often talked about, especially in the United States. The United States got involved in the war between North and South Korea with the idea that they would shield the country from communistic approaches. However, in the end, there was little change from before and after the war. The North and South would always be at odds. I think it was called the Forgotten War because the United States did not gain much, if anything, from it. So, from the perspective of Americans, it was a war that should be forgotten and many people believe that we should have never gotten involved in the first place.
