Again, I am being misunderstood.

I am talking about the Chinese decision to greenlight the N.Korean invasion of S.Korea. N.Korea would never have launched the invasion without the Chinese backing so it was Mao's call on what would happen on the Pennensula.

About that you are right. The N. Korean invasion brought the US to the Korean penensula back again. The US had completely withdrawn their units after WW2 from Korean.
Support for the N.Korean invasion was a Chinese blunder.

lol, we are not going to sit back and relax whole you gobble up nk, which is more dangerous than taiwan

its about piorities man, from nk you can attack china pretty badly, from a little island you are doing something quite impossible

Again, Chinese intervention after America had gotten up to the Yalu river was a strategically sound decision.

This thread deals with the decision years before that in which China gave the green light to N.Korea to invade the South.

Jesus Christ, am I being this incoherent? Why is that the Australian is the only one who can understand the point of this thread?

Whispering Death hit the nail on the head. Prior to the start of the Korean War, Truman had identified Japan and the Philippines as being part of the American Pacific defense strategy. Taiwan and South Korea were left out. As such, Mao and Stalin both felt that South Korea could be taken quickly without US intervention. Afterward, Mao would be free to invade the ROC. However, shortly after the NK attack, Truman sent a carrier task force from the US Navy 7th Fleet through the Formosa Strait. Navy fighters even practiced landing on Taiwanese air bases, and I think they might have turned over some aircraft to the ROC Air Force as well, I'm not sure. The message was clear: the United States would defend the Republic of China. Mao's plans were put on hold, and he wouldn't even try to invade until 1957.

well, i just want to point out a news that CNN reported a week ago, interstingly, it's about the americans "live no man behind". the story was that a plane was lost at the korean in a fight. years after the war, nobody fround the remaining in korea. then, a twist, when a chinese family brought a piece of land in the hill side and start building the house, they found an old plane in an hole in the ground and a dog tag... so, years after the war, a mistrey finally have a good end..... well, how does the plane end up in china? to me, one thing that is quite clear, the UN army is really close or have crossed the chinese border. nobody imagined that china could enter the war at that time, but surely, no one ruled out the U.N would stop at the chinese border neither. it's metter of live and death to us when china entered that war, i can't see the the samilar situation apply in Taiwan, really.
