Did we loose the Korean War

Mig-15, Fighter Jet, Aircraft-Soldier

On paper and in history, the Korean War was viewed as neither a victory or a defeat. A cease fire and peace treaty was composed between them instead, her response. The battles went on for 3 decades. On July 27, 1953 the two sides signed an armistice and a new border was set on a few miles from the original 1950 border. In my opinion the Korean conflict/war was a success in ways aside from the original goals set by the USA.The war ended in a draw. Both sides agreed to a cease fire and signed an armistice. The Korean War didn’t end in a total victory for the United States or anybody else. Instead, both sides settled for an uneasy peace that still exists to this day at the time of this writing of the article 12-24-15. The answer to that question may be in the minds of individuals who study what actually happened and what is happening today. The way I see it, the end result was a victory when you compare what is happening today in South Korea to what was occurring before the attack, before one of the bloodiest wars our world ever saw, and compared to North Korea today. Many people felt and may even still feel now that the United States didn’t belong there. I’ve discovered this myself even in this year of 2015. People grumble saying,”we did not belong in Korea.”I strongly disagree. My father was one that fought in Korea from 1950 to 1953. He was just a young boy age 16 entering the military at Fort Knox, Kentucky Army base for a military career. He got sent directly into a violent and horrific bloody battle during some of the roughest weather anyone could ever imagine. He spent much of his time there in battles in tanks. Short recreation breaks were spent in Japan.One of his best memories of course was that he was wounded trying to save another fellow soldier and did rescue him. He would say over and over again like elated:”they covered me up for dead, but I was still alive.”This was a technique done by his fellow soldiers by transferring the tank over his injured body to conceal him from the enemy because he was then pulled into the tank to wait for the M.A.S.H. units.He was taken to a hospital in Japan where they placed a steel plate in his chest that he had no idea even existed before he found out he had lung cancer later in life at age 56. He died of lung cancer.The experts said”we want to know more about this steel plate we found on x-ray on your chest.” Dad did not even know he had a steel plate. It had to have been put there while in the Korean War in the hospital in Japan. He also received a chest wound. Just think of this, and I do quite often now, only 16 years old laying now under an Army tank, not knowing if he would survive or not.I still strongly disagree. Dad came out of it alive, was wounded once, received a purple heart for his bravery and was among those that returned to the United States, got a job and tried to”forget” he was ever there, but never did forget it. I was born in 1956 and that I recall much of his early life following that war. He would wake up in the middle of the night”reciting orders” over and over again, occasionally screaming and crying. He suffered from the memories of the war, but not once said he was sorry he went. He said the worst aspect of it all to him was to see the suffering little children. Many of the deaths of that war were innocent civilians.America responded to South Korea’s defense after North Korea invaded. The original goals were to restore the global border along the 38th Parallel and to eject North Korean forces from South Korea territories. Everyone actually thought the battle was over until the Chinese entered into the film.United States leaders also wanted to show North Korea that this sort of aggression would not be tolerated. To this day, year of 2015, North Korea still shows hostility toward South Korea. There has been no more conflict equal to what was from the 1950’s. For this reason among other reasons, I think the decision to go into the battle ended in more of a victory than a defeat. It seems clear to me that all who entered that battle in opposition of communism did put a lid on the horrible aggression toward innocent people.Additional reasons I see this as being a victory for the United States:When you compare the economy of North Korea into the market of South Korea now we find the war allowed for a rebirth of South Korea. Since the end of the 1950’s conflict/war and cessation of extreme hostilities South Korea has grown into a vibrant and powerful republic.People all over the world now benefit from South Korea’s economic success. The capital of South Korea, Seoul, has become an international center of commerce and industry. Today, South Koreans enjoy one of the greatest standards of living in the world.None of the above would have happened had the communists been successful in their invasion of the South.By comparison, North Korea is among the best examples of communism’s collapse. North Koreans suffer much more from starvation and malnutrition.Meanwhile, the South Koreans are flourishing. Businesses like Daewoo, Hyundai, LG, Samsung, Kia Automotives are some of the largest business conglomerates in the world and have become household names in U.S. family rooms, garages and offices.Everyday, I see more and more Kia cars on the roads. I have considered purchasing a Kia Soul automobile now for years and probably will eventually buy one if I need another car. My older chevy still runs! But when I have need of a new car, I’m always looking toward the Kia as purchasing one. Without the United States and these other countries who joined in to struggle against the communist aggression in the 1950’s, not one of the things for South Korea would be in existence now. We today wouldn’t be enjoying the economic growth in South Korea. It’s a fantastic thing also the President ceased the nuclear bombing efforts also, as it would have taken over 100 years for any kind of culture to be in that area again.As listed in our history, there were errors made as there are in any kind of war, many innocent people were murdered, but the positive outcomes of the war informs me it was definitely a success, not a defeat, for the United States in terms of”long term events.”

Chihuahuah as pets

Some scholars believe the Chihuahua to be descended from Chinese hairless dogs-who could have crossed over from Asia to Alaska on a land bridge prior to continental separation generated the Bering Strait and bred with the early Techichi dog, producing the modern-day Chihuahua. But due to the absence of archaeological proof to support this concept, it was afterwards considered that Chihuahuas were brought to Mexico by settlers from Spain.

There are two types of Chihuahua. One of which has a sleek, soft glossy coat, which covers the whole body except head and ears. Another version has a long coat with an undercoat. This type of coat could be curly or flat. The Chihuahua falls under the AKC’s toy group. Generally their height is 6 to 10 inches at the shoulders and their weight is 2 to 6 lbs. Chihuahuas come in a variety of colours, from plain white, to strong black and seen, or other colors like silver, blue or gray, chocolate, fawn or tan, tricolor-chocolate, black or blue with white or tan markings, merle and brindle, and all the colors vary in colour and tone. Chihuahuas are mostly known for their small body and big, sharp ears. A Chihuahua’s nose is usually short and slightly pointed. They have lean jaws and lips and blue, mole or chocolate colored noses. However a pink nose is permissible in blond Chihuahuas. The tail is either curled or up in a loop with the tip of it slightly touching the trunk.

Many Chihuahua owners often are confused by the variety of dog foods available on the market. As a responsible Chihuahua owner, you should give your pet with foods containing carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, fatty acids and minerals. A proper balance of these components will not only keep the dog healthy and happy but it will also save you from the hassles and frustration of regular vet visits and prices. Dry foods usually help to keep the pet’s teeth clean and , help to work his jaws. This sort of dog food is readily digestible. Aside from some premium quality dog foods, you should avoid branded food items or commercial dog food. They contain preservatives, additives, artificial colors, non-nutritive residues, etc. and can adversely affect your pet’s health. The chihuahua’s diet additionally must contain vitamin and mineral supplements in balanced concentrations.You may safely provide your Chihuahua a normal lamb and rice combination. This not only deals with the nutritional needs of your Chihuahua, it lessens the risk of allergies and other health disorders. Due to lack of proper nutrition, Chihuahuas can suffer from nausea, belching, loose stools, gassiness and stomach ache after meals. Some foods commonly enjoyed by humans are dangerous to Chihuahuas such as chocolate, grapes, raisins, onions, macadamia nuts, alcoholic drinks, salmon (occasionally triggers allergies), etc.. Obesity is dangerous. In order to present your Chihuahua a long, happy, healthy life, you want to be conscious about what you’re feeding it.

Chihuahuas are prized for their devotion, ferocity and character. Their inquisitive nature and small size make them easily adaptable to various environments, for example, city and compact apartments. Chihuahuas are usually intelligent and independent by nature. Some dogs are bright and can learn quickly, while others are more stubborn and obstinate. Some are outgoing and friendly towards strangers while others are withdrawn and aloof. Whatever your Chihuahua’s attitude now, your love, care and training can change your pet completely, from an unruly, out-of-control puppy to the best dog in the neighborhood. Chihuahuas, in general, are beautiful characters, and are lively, entertaining, and very loyal. They crave for constant love and care from you and your family members.Chihuahuas aren’t well-suited as small children’s pets because of their size, temperament and tendency to bite when frightened. It is recommended that children be college aged or older before adding a Chihuahua to one’s home. Additionally, many Chihuahuas concentrate their devotion on one person, becoming overly jealous of that person’s human relationships. This can be nipped in the bud through proper socialization. Chihuahuas seem to have no idea of their own size and may fearlessly confront larger animals, which can result in injury.

Chihuahuas get sick from parasites, viruses, bacteria, protozoa, and fungus. Sometimes, these diseases and infestations are fatal unless caught early and treated. Sometimes they sow the seeds of death or debilitation years down the road by inducing chronic illness or harmful organs. Luckily, veterinary researchers have developed drugs and treatments that decrease the incidence and effects of many diseases and parasites, but they don’t eradicate the diseases, they only hold them at bay. Immunizing Chihuahuas against disease is a simple process. Pet owners may even take vaccinations for granted. It is the most routine procedure performed in veterinary clinics. The significant viral diseases are rabies, distemper, parvovirus, hepatitis, parainfluenza, and coronavirus. The significant bacterial diseases are lyme, leptospirosis, and kennel cough. Diseases such as Rabies, Lyme, and Leptospirosis can also infect people.
Chihuahuas can also get sick from debilitating diseases like arthritis and hip dysplasia but are most common in elderly Chihuahuas. Chihuahuas are also very susceptible to diabetes and hypoglycemia. Before trying any treatment choices, you should get an accurate diagnosis of your Chihuahua, which is usually done with a physical examination combined with x-rays performed in your veterinarian’s. Treatment and prevention are personal choices but involve several options when considering your Chihuahua’s health. You can either go for modern day medicines or homeopathic treatments.

Proper Chihuahua health care also involves grooming. You will often notice many Chihuahuas with dirty, rough or greasy hair, their nails too long, teary eyes, and dirty ears. Obviously, these Chihuahuas aren’t well-groomed. Bear in mind, a well-groomed Chihuahua not only looks great, but he feels great from inside as well. This paves the way for improved health for your Chihuahua. Surprisingly enough after grooming, chihuahuas may look very different and appear to have more pep. Ticks, fleas, manges and other parasites frequently breed on a Chihuahuas coat. With routine grooming you can prevent this.

Physical exercise is important for your Chihuahua. Puppies, adolescent, healthy adults, and older pets alike need a great deal of regular daily workout sessions to keep their health. The sort of exercise depends upon the age and fitness of your Chihuahua and your own lifestyle. Chihuahuas are adaptable and are delighted to play Frisbee in the park or take long walks in the area. Daily exercise is recommended unless the weather is especially harmful or a medical problem limits your Chihuahua’s activity. If there is a medical problem, consult your veterinarian about exercise limitations. Bear in mind that heavy Chihuahuas and those with heart and lung diseases may have a problem, and be sure to consult your vet before beginning a new regime.

You know your pet best and can often notice subtle early warning signs of illness that someone else might not detect. Should you observe symptoms or other indications that worry you, call your physician immediately. The safest approach would be to have your pet examined before it is too late. Although figures often vary, as with any breed, the average lifespan for a Chihuahua is approximately 8 to 18 years of age.

Although an owner needs to take care of a Chihuahua it will be your very best friend and loyal companion for their lifetime. And will provide the owner great joy if cared for properly. Feel free to contact me to check my sources.
