Re: April 2018--Korea, Historically Troublesome?

Maybe so. Not certain can accept the way this conclusion is worded.

One of my Professors who talked with Sec. of State Dean Acheson at the time of Korea in the 50s, used to tell a story how he asked about Korea.

Acheson's answer to him was we were distracted by the Soviets and possible events or war on the Central Front, ie, Germany and Europe. Their thinking at the time of Korea was invaded, that was only a diversionary thrust to draw their attention away from the Central Front and not the main show.

Re: April 2018--Korea, Historically Troublesome?

I had a clever reply to this, so of course my government computer ate it. And I'll never be that clever again.

The thrust of my point was that, when Korea entered the spotlight of military history over a century ago, the Western countries with interests in the region were arguably distracted by other affairs. Dutch influence had long declined in southeast Asia; Britain was getting over the harder-than-expected Boer War; France was stirring up trouble with Siam; and the United States had just wrapped up a long counterinsurgency in the Philippines.
