             At the end of World War II, Korea had divided into North Korea and South Korea. Basically North Korea was occupied by Russian troops, the Communist group, and South Korea was occupied by American troops. In their northern zone the Soviets set up a puppet Communist clique and trained a Communist army, Deter minded to prevent the formation of a free South Korean government, the Russians fought against its establishment. On June 25 1950, A North Korean army - Russian-trained, Russian equipped, and presumably Russian-inspired- suddenly lunged southward across the borderline 38th parallel with the object of engulfing UN-sponsored South Korea. Beginning of Korean War was the evidence of conflict between Macarthur, and President Truman. Because result of lost South Korea by communists meant that lost only democratic country in the eastern Asia, which had not to be happened for America. Truman tried to think here. .
             The Security Council of the UN, then meeting on Long Island, moved swiftly under prodding from Washington.
