    Why was there a Korean Civil War?
    The Korean civil war began in June of 1950 when the North Korean army attacked South Korea by crossing the 38th parallel, the artificial dividing line that separated the north from the south. North Korea claimed they were attacking in response to an attack by South Korea. However most historians agree this was probably a lie and was actually a premeditated offensive with the backing and approval of Russia. Some speculate Russia wanted all of Korea because the US had “all” of Japan. Others speculate Russia didn’t want a US base so close to their territory, that they wanted to frighten and embarrass the US, and/or Russia believed the US had little interest in South Korea and would likely not put up much of a fight in support of South Korea. Who really knows for sure?
