"The suffragist movement. In fact, Susan B. Anthony cast her first and only vote for president for Ulysses S. Grant. It was upstate New York. It was an illegal vote. She was tried, convicted and find Susan never paid the fine. Actually, the registrar's Rickon were sentenced to five days and grand commuted. Their sentence. But, um, Susan be entirely Elizabeth Cady Stanton. It's you know, at all opposed the 15th amendment unless they were going to be 1/16 Amendment. That would give women the right to vote. So it was really the you know, the women's movement comes directly out of the abolitionist movement to so many of those women was kind of like what happened here in the city civil rights, But within the 19 sixties, a lot of women also provided you know for black rights. Hey, what about women basically thing? Well, maybe trumps Voter Fraud Commission will use that story is evidence. Well, you see Susan B. Anthony Captain Illegal boat. How much? Does unfair rap by history. Tied together. You're writing Alexander Hamilton and now right and Grant because grants I think his general reputation was casual reputation is that he was a really bad president. Well, I guess I have a contrarian streak in my nature, because when I did Alexander Hamilton, he was either one for gotten or two demonized, you know, in Jefferson was glorified. On. So I think that the book and certainly the show, you know helped to rehabilitate his reputation. Ulysses S. Grant in 1948 Arthur Schlessinger did a poll of presidential historians write to grant Second from the bottom. Only one jihad Ng was considered worse and it was considered a completely failed presidency that was marked by scandals. Corruption, nepotism, cronyism, you name it and all those things happen Can What I try to argue in the book was that that was the minor story. The administration the major story. His Gran's crusade. To crush the Ku Klux Klan hires a wonderful Attorney General Amos Sacrament from Georgia. They use the new Justice Department. To bring 3000 indictments against the clan. They get more than 1000 convictions and his Frederick Douglass said afterwards. The slaughter and scourging of my people have, C said This seems to be much, much bigger. Story of his administration was kind of curious, Brian what we remembered what we don't remember about presidencies. Why was this whole story kind of buried? Where's the scandals lived on and I think it's you know, during grand second term in office, the Democrats know the words that you know the white South and then north and sympathizers. Take over Congress. They were very upset about reconstruction, which have been promoting bi racial society in the South s O. These Democratic investigating committees begin to probe Corruption in the Grant administration, and it was really their way. Of undercutting an administration and the reason I wanted to cut. It was not because of the scandals but because of reconstruction was considered much too pro black. Administration. Defenders of the statues and flying the Confederate flag say the Civil War wasn't about slavery. Now that you've been immersing yourself in that here with fresh eyes that era. How much was it about slavery? How much about state's rights in the absence of a good question? Because James Longstreet, who was Robert E. Lee's chief commander? Longstreet, said J. During the four years of the war. I never heard anything but slavery mentioned as the cause of the world. And in fact, after the Confederacy was formed in early 18 61. Alexander Stephens, who was the vice president of the Confederacy, said that the cornerstone of the federal of Confederacy is the idea that the black man is inferior that slavery is his natural state. And that Confederacy is the first state founded on this great principle. They were in shy back then about saying it. It was really just you know, this kind of ex post facto re writing. Of history that said, it was state's rights. You know the other thing, Brian is that 7 50,000 people died in the civil War, believe hundreds of thousands of people don't ever state's rights. Whoever strongly of you listeners may feel about this issue. I doubt that many of them would be willing to lay down their life for state's rights or federal rights, or whatever did the North ever seriously consider letting the South go? Like what was the point of holding onto the South by force, and so many thousands of people dying for that if they didn't share our values, or want to be in our club, there's certainly no there was a segment of the abolitionist movement that said, You know, state slavery is a stain on the nation and let them go. And you know on good riddance. Then there were other abolitionists who said that that was simply tow. Condemn. Black community in the south to the tender mercies and over the white supremacists. And so and that was kind of became the dominant force. But yes, there were a lot of people. Who did not want to go to war over that issue. So what do you make of events in Charlottesville and things like it? How much of an echo of unresolved issues from the civil war that persisted this day? Versus how much about new issues that just find their expression and contemporary white grievances and the Confederate flag really means something very different to people today. Then it did at that time. I think that you know the civil War is still it. Zenon healed wound, and we're still dealing with the unresolved issues of that, because they're these two competing narratives of what happened. You know, after the South militarily lost the war. In many ways, they won the peace. There was a school of thought called the Lost Cause that began to Essentially rewrite history romanticized the Confederacy. They said. No, it wasn't about slavery was bad state's rights. They argued that it was the Confederacy that was following in the footsteps of George Washington and the American Revolution. And, you know, most importantly, they said that reconstruction Which we now feel was a noble experiment in American life to try to create a bi racial society in the south. They said that it was a fiasco of corrupt carpetbag politicians and illiterate thought, black legislators. And so we still have, you know, in our schools, and they're these two different versions of what what happened. I should say, Monk, it Historians, you know you can find a historian is going to tell you that the cause of the war was with states rights, but that is still you know, toward and many southern schools and has become an article of faith. So two little things before you go one. Am I right? That President Ulysses S. Grant has something unusual in common with President Harry S. Truman. You know what? I might be a little in this show middle Initial doesn't stand for anything. I didn't. I didn't remember that with various to me. I mean, the story with Grant was that his real name was Hiram Ulysses Grant. He dropped the Hiram because stuck him with the initials hug. The kids used to tease him. He got teased, but boys having the end and after that hug, Absolutely. And then he's nominated for West Point by local congressman who sends in his name mistakenly as Ulysses S. Grant and grand for the rest of his life. Said that he s did for absolutely nothing. So is that true with Harry try believe that he was just named after double check this, but I believe that he was just named middle initial s Without its standing for anything. We looked it up for the Truman Library to compromise between the names of his grandfather's Anderson ship Truman and Solomon Young. So ship and Solomon, the two esses God, you know they were inspired by them, but it did not technically stand for anything. So on his birth certificate, it was just Harry S. Truman. So who's writing Grant? The musical. I think it's safe to say there won't be a great years ago Grants..

A President out of the loop- Black Ops

"Welcome kits, myths, and mysteries cider host kid crumbs today I thought with rumors of a new coal or between America and Russia I do something on the birth of black ops most have become familiar with the term black ops short for block world operations from television and movies. It started with the Manhattan project and later the Atomic, Energy Commission, the atomic bomb was shrouded in. Secrecy by the Manhattan project that wrote the rules on black ops to further that point the world learned that America had dropped an atomic bomb on her Shimon. No one knew at that time or was more surprised than the US. Congress none of the members had any idea that it was being developed by President Harry. Truman had been equally stunned to learn about the bomb. When he became President Truman had been the chairman of the Senate Special Committee to investigate the National Defense Program when he was vice president meaning that he was in charge of watching how money was spent during World War Two. Yet he had no idea about the atomic bomb, the bombs price tag adjusted for inflation costs twenty, eight, billion dollars the Manhattan project employed two hundred. Thousand people it had eighty offices, dozens of production plans including a sixty thousand Acre facility in rural Tennessee, and no knew the Manhattan project existed after the War Congress was given control over the bomb. They created the Atomic Energy Act Nineteen, forty six, a terrifying new system of secret keeping presidential system was governed by presidential executive orders regarding national security information, but the new atomic energy. Commission formerly, the Manhattan project was now in charge of regulating national security information for the first time. In American, history of Federal Agency would be run by civilians that is to say that the Atomic Energy Commission would maintain a body of secrets classified factors other than presidential executive orders. In other words, ABC would keep the precedent out of the loop concerning certain secrets it was. Also the ADC created the term born classified. This meant that the Atomic Energy Commission could classify something that originated outside the government through think tanks and research from private parties. In other words, the e C could hire a private company to conduct research for the commission and the result of the research would be born classified leaving the president out of the loop while all this begs. The question of where all this clandestine research would take place the ask through course would be area fifty one and what pray tell would this research be on area fifty one was born depending on your source about nineteen fifty one, the Atomic Energy Commission was formed in nineteen, forty six. So wouldn't be a stretch to imagine that early research was on spy planes like the. To the flew over Russia but one, year nineteen, forty seven after the creation of the Atomic Energy Commission a flying saucer crash on a ranch just outside Roswell. New Mexico wreckage and bodies were whisked off to area fifty one fast forward to Nineteen eighty-six six when ninety two people came forward with witness reports of what happened back in nineteen, forty, seven, slash nine, hundred, forty, eight. This nineteen eighty-six event raise the public awareness concerning the Roswell. And certainly peaked interest in flying saucers general underlying that interest is always the cry that the government knows about flying saucers and alien life. But the truth is that they are probably as much in the dark as a general public think Atomic Energy Commission to hammer home. It was President Bill Clinton, who in January nineteen, ninety three, the beginning of his first term requested that the head of his Justice Department find out if there really were UFO's that sounds to me like a precedent that's out of the loop.

It was a bubbling mass of purple gray smoke, and you could see it had a red core in it and everything was burning inside, he said. On the ground. About 70,000 were killed by the blast. Why? To obtain unconditional surrender from Imperial Japan and end World War two. The man who made that decision was President Harry S. Truman. I had realized, of course, Truman said that an atomic bomb explosion would inflict damage and casualties beyond imagination. Harry Truman was uniquely qualified to make this momentous decision out of all U. S presidents in the 20th century on Ly Truman Experience sustained ground combat. Harry Truman commanded an artillery battery during World War one. His battery D of the 129 field artillery took part in the bloodiest American battle of the Great War. Like most veterans of World War on Truman glossed over the Gore he witnessed what is combat experience stayed with him. Just as a younger Harry Truman had seen a lot on the Western front. The war in the Pacific in 1945 was at a peak of brutality. Americans suffered horrendous casualties on Iwo Jima and Okinawa. Kamikaze Japanese suicide planes attacked Inflame the U. S. Navy ships be 20 nine's had been fire bombing Japan's major industrial cities. The March 9th, 1945 Fire bombing of Tokyo killed 125,000 in one night. Truman knew Japan was losing but unwilling to give up. Looming ahead was the invasion of Japan scheduled for November 1st 1945. It would start with General Douglas MacArthur, commanding amphibious landings in the south to Pan's warlords have already guessed the invasion site in port in 200,000 troops afresh 8000 kamikaze planes were on hand. Imperial Japan strategy was to inflict unacceptable losses on invading American forces bogged down the fight and play for time to negotiate terms other than unconditional surrender. Hundreds of thousands would have died in the process with the Potsdam Declaration on July 26 1945. The allies gave Japan a chance to end the war but depend rejected a July 29th. It was time to try the atomic bomb. We were about to be given a piece of ordnance, which would far surpass any bomb ever drop before by any nation were called General Curtis LeMay, who commanded B 29 bomber forces. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were chosen, in part because they had not been firebombed and the unprecedented power of the A bomb would be clear. Those two atomic bombs and the fear of more gave Japan reason to surrender. It was fortunate for both sides that Japan realized the wisdom of surrender, concluded an official U. S. Army report. Instead of invasion, there was peaceful occupation without gunfire without further destruction and without bloodshed. Everyone thinks that the factors Truman weighed. The judgment of history should now be added in the use of the atomic bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki created a powerful nuclear deterrent widely credited with holding the Soviet Union and the West that from direct confrontation during the Cold War. Nuclear deterrence has been a bedrock strategy for every president since I never thought of any regrets of being on that crew, Karen set in 1985. It was just a military mission We were picked to do.

"Alongside the social upheaval in American streets, a significant movement has percolated in the halls of our government's most rigid institution, a fundamental tension between executive authority and allegiance to the Constitution has prompted unprecedented soul-searching within the military traditionally stalwart for conservative values. It began with the president's notorious Bible photo op preceded by a military crackdown north of the White House clearing protesters from Lafayette Square several days later. General Mark Mealy chairman of the Joint Chiefs of staff publicly renounced his role in enabling the June first incident as many of you saw the result of the photograph of me at Lafayette Square last week. I should not have been there. My presence in that moment and in that environment. Created, a perception of the military involved in domestic politics. It was a mistake. Secretary of Defense. Mark Esperer also renounced the photo op and undercut the president's threat against protestors, saying that he did not support the use of insurrection act to put down civilian peaceful protests that we're taking place across the country shortly after that photo op as well at Saint John's Church. That's right, and we know that the president was really unhappy with Secretary for over those comments the public of them, and just before trump's commencement speech at West Point hundreds of alumni of the military academy signed an open letter, urging new West Point graduates to approach future orders from the president, especially those concerning military force against civilians with caution. Writer Fred Kaplan such public insubordination from the General Class to the rank and file is highly unusual. Fred welcome back to the show. Thanks could to be there. Okay this is not Barbra streisand chastising the president. This is the military which is nearly alone among American institutions, still accorded the respect of the broad public. This is serious business. Yeah. This is really a very big deal. I can't think of another case where the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of staff that is to say, the senior US military officer has publicly apologized for standing next to the president of the United, states, in any forum, or for any purpose much less one that was stage directed by the President I can't think of another case where something like a thousand West Point graduates have sent an open letter to the current graduating class where the president is about to give a commencement speech. Urging them to keep their mind on constitutional principles. Not what any particular president might say, it's contrary to them. Nor can I even think of an example where a pretty heavy hitting group of senior retired officers has criticized the president in public for certain policies, and in a couple of cases, the president himself for his character. This is a very big deal and the generals who've done this. Know that it's a very big deal, and for that reason did it very reluctantly. Why I mean there have been times in our history. I think probably many where the military has had to bite. Rip while deferring to Civilian Authority what is it about military culture that pushes so hard against this kind of resistance and rhetoric from its general officers. Well when you're an officer, you kind of have to principals pounded into your head from the moment since you were a cadet. One is to obey lawful orders by civilian authorities. Don't get involved in politics. Your job is to carry out the lawful orders of the commander in chief. The second principle is to abide by the constitution. You are loyal more to the constitution than to any particular leader. What's rare maybe unique in this instance is that the behavior of a president has created a tension. Between these two directives, one to follow lawful orders by the president to obey constitutional principles. We have a situation where the president's talking about lawful orders which he may give. Contradict. Constitutional Principles. Now there was one famous episode where a senior officer. Flouted, the wishes of the President Harry S Truman that was Douglas mccarthur during the Korean War and he wound up recalled for having been in subordinate. Are there any other examples of a general or an admiral? Just saying no. There have been cases of officers resigning rather than carrying out orders there have been cases of officers being fired, either by the president of the Secretary of defense for not doing their job well, but it's worth keeping in mind MacArthur in nineteen, fifty one. When this happened was a national hero, he was incredibly popular, and this gave him a sense of powering zone mind. He defied aide Harry Truman's orders. He wanted to invade China Truman said No. Macarthur insisted Truman fired him, which was an incredibly risky thing to do because as I say. Macarthur was probably more popular than Truman was at the time, but it was this episode that in fact instilled in the officer corps. From then till now, the principle that you should stay out of politics, don't the Cartha. I'm wondering about mechanism beyond after the fact, statements of opprobrium that we've seen in the past week. That's available to military leaders. The law of war manual addresses how to handle illegal orders for decisions made on the battlefield. And periodically there are prosecutions of. And Marines for making the wrong choice, but is there. Anything codified to guide the military brass in the abuse of the military for political purposes. No and they're probably shouldn't be I mean you don't want some military officer throwing a coup against the president because he's not obeying the constitution that officer sees it. There our elected officials and elections for that, but you know it is interesting. One sign of bravery in peace time that a military officer stick to is being brave enough to do something that might get him fired. General Mark Mealy. The Chairman of the joint. Chiefs of Staff when after days of saying. And coming under intense criticism. From within and from without over standing next to the president, his photo op outside of Saint John's Church. Finally, said Yeah now. I I shouldn't have done this. This was wrong and he must have known at that point that he risked being fired. He's only been chairman for a year. It's a four year term..

Is it possible to have too much humility?

Hacking Your Leadership

Is it possible to have too much humility?

"Our for this week's episode talk about something a little on the personal side for me? I want to talk about humility. Some personality traits fall into the more is better category. Meaning you should always strive to be more or have more of them things that conscientiousness and kindness other traits can be more accurately placed on a bell curve. Means a right amount and having too little or too much can be a problem. Things like empathy and inclusion fall into this category. Yes seriously you probably know someone to work with. Someone who over index on empathy they carry the emotional burdens of other so deeply could it hinders their own ability to function accomplish tasks need to learn how to compartmentalize more. You probably work with someone who's to inclusive they'll reschedule a meeting because one of the eight people who were supposed is to attend can no longer make it instead of just catching that person up in a different way. Humility falls into this category to. There's a right amount of humility to have and it's something I've personally swung the pendulum on very wide in both directions in my own life. When I was in my late teens and early twenties I was told several times by leaders and Co workers that I needed to keep my ego in check and it was hard? I repeatedly received accolades for doing things while at work and often went to my head and because they didn't really need to rely on my co workers for any of my success. It was easy to act like an island in and strut around. Like I knew I was good looking back. I don't think I was any worse than can be expected of any young person. New to the workforce being told they're really good at what they do but nevertheless started to take on leadership roles these for positive impact my ability to my job a lot more than I didn't have people putting up to me then. One day I came across a quote that would become my favorite of all time former president. Harry Truman once said it's amazing what you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit. I'm not sure why this resonated with me but it did. I started contemplating all the effort I put into. I'm not the work itself but in a making sure everyone knew I was the one who did it. I then started thinking about how much more can accomplish a fight instead. Put the effort into the work itself. It required a ton of disciplined for several years. But the fact that I saw results interpersonal relationships with my peers and my direct reports was motivating and more than half the time ended up getting credit for my compliments. Anyway just through to the work of someone else bringing light to it rather than myself. Over time I went from pretending I didn't care who got the credit for my efforts to actually not caring who got the credit. It was free by the time I had more than a decade in the workforce. I started seeing that on a long enough time line. The people who matter will always eventually figure out which employees are working hard. and which ones aren't that. It wasn't about any single Action or project or outcome but rather the entirety of the contribution. Each person makes I believe this. Evolution was necessary my life and I believe it has served me well. But it's a double edged sword an English too far in the opposite direction years ago I found myself in a position where the majority of the work was remote. It had a fair amount of travel. But when I wasn't traveling I was able to work from home. I I saw my family. A Lot. Didn't have to say not many things and I still got my work done. Every project has gone was completed correctly and I believe I did some really great work during those years but one day out of the blue I was told my position was being eliminated. I was being let go. I was shocked. There was no explanation of the position was going away. I asked specifically if there was a performance issue and I was told there wasn't wasn't I was a little hurt and a lot surprised but I moved onto the next phase of my career about a year after this happened. I ran into a former coworker from this job. And we reminisced a little emotionally. Personally I'd long moved on so I asked her pointedly. She'd heard anything of the time about one position but eliminate or if there was anything that had been kept from me. She said very candidly that. No one on the team of people who I made. The decision had any idea what I did there that for several months a few people even opined whether I did any work at all I was blown away. Actually not us being dramatic I started listing off all the projects excite spearheaded and completed on my own. Just in the last six months I was there. She knew about all of them but didn't know they were my work. I gun so far in the opposite direction of making sure that everyone saw my accomplishments events that I realized I'd failed to do any self promotion at all. The project that completed were attributed to others in the office who weren't remote and whose faces were visible by their coworkers. Every day it it was a huge hard lesson for me. I'd spent so much time working on making sure. No one saw me as a person who hogged the spotlight that succeeded in making sure no one saw me at all and when it comes to your workplace this is just as bad place to be. I've done some serious soul-searching over the years since this happened and I still have a very difficult time with self promotion when I make an attempt. It always feels like I'm bragging but I'm getting better. I'll continue to get better. The right balance is important companies. Face it all the time when it comes to corporate social responsibility if it organizations constantly touting the plays at saving the planet potential customers believe. They're only doing those things to get the credit rather than because they actually care and this impacts every individual to as leaders continued to be expected to do more or with less as they find themselves with more and more people in their charge more and more people whose development is their responsibility it will become more commonplace for leaders to miss many of the contributions made by their people. They'll see the work but they wanna who made it happen unless someone tells them sometimes it will be your responsibility to make sure others know what your contribution is other times. You'll be able to trust that. Things work themselves out either way remember that while humility is incredibly important it can come with undesired outcomes when taken too far

How Has the Korean War Changed History?

"On June twenty-fifth nineteen fifty North Korean tanks rolled across the thirty eighth parallel the line that separated communist North Korea from US-backed South Korea, as a now, declassified US intelligence cable from Tokyo to Washington concluded, the incursion wasn't just a mere raid, quote the size of the North Korean forces employed, the depth of penetration the intensity of the attack and the landings made miles south of the parallel on the east coast indicated that the North Koreans are engaged in all out offensive to subjugate, South Korea. It was the start of a war that is still not ended a full seven decades later. The Korean war, which ultimately would pit the US against China in the first ever, confrontation between the two superpowers would claim the lives of an estimated two point five million military members and civilians including nearly thirty four thousand Americans the fighting would cease with an armistice on July twenty seventh nineteen fifty three but the Geneva conference of nineteen fifty four failed to produce a peace treaty in the north and south remained tense enemies, and that's the way things have pretty much continued, though in twenty eighteen North Korean dictator Kim Jong UN and South Korean president Mundi een announced that they would work together toward a peace treaty. But after the collapse of February summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong those tensions seemed likely to remain for a while longer. In the US the Korean war is sometimes called the forgotten war, because it's overshadowed by the conflicts that came before, and after it the stirring victory of World War Two, and the lengthy, painful ordeal of the Vietnam war. We spoke with Edward roads. A professor on the faculty of the shar school of policy and government at George Mason University in Fairfax Virginia, who's an expert in American foreign, and national security policy. He said modern Americans don't think about it much. Vietnam was more dramatic. And World War Two is more in victorious. Nevertheless, the overlooked conflict has exerted a powerful influence that still felt today according to roads, the war forever changed the course of US foreign, and national security policy. Compelling the US to accept a permanent military involvement around the globe, even in peacetime. It also helped drive, the creation of a vast US nuclear arsenal to deter possible, communist aggression with the threat of annihilation and a global nuclear arms race. Still continues all this happened, according to roads after career. A nation that had been occupied by the Japanese from nineteen ten to nineteen Forty-five was split into two by the US, and the USSR after World War Two, he explains, it was a practical matter. There were Japanese armies that had retreated into Korea from insurer, and they needed to be disarmed. We split that large task with the Soviet Union the understanding that the Soviets would design the Japanese in the north, and we would do it in the south, but as the Cold War developed between the US and its European allies and the Soviets, the temporary partition turned into a permanent one with the formation of a communist regime headed by Kim Il Sung in the north at an authoritarian pro American government headed by Sigmund, e in the south each regime sought self as the real government of Korea and its rival as illegitimate. Kim Il Sung decided to settle the matter by invading South Korea. And in may nineteen fifty finally obtained reluctant approval from his patron these stallion regime about a month later. Kim launched a surprise attack which initially had devastating result. What's the South Korean forces essentially dissolved the UN Security, Council taking advantage of a Soviet boycott of the body, then passed a measure, calling for member nations to assist the beleaguered South Koreans that mandate enabled US president Harry Truman to respond militarily without having to go to congress for a declaration of war. Up until that point, the US hadn't seen South Korea's having much strategic importance erode said, but when the North Korean tanks rolled across the border, the image that flashed in Truman's mind was that this was a repeat of what the Nazis did his responses to stand up thinking that if we had stood up to Hitler early on the world would have been a better place, an outnumbered contingent of UN forces formed, a desperate line of defense around the only part of South Korea, not yet, captured by the communists and managed to hold off the invaders for two months that gave General Douglas MacArthur, who had been placed in overall command of the UN forces enough time to make an audacious and fibia landing at Inchon near the South Korean capital of Seoul on September fifteenth. Nineteen fifty cutting off the over extended North Koreans MacArthur's forces chased the invaders back north across the thirty eighth parallel and by mid October had captured the North Korean capital of Pyongyang, but MacArthur overconfident kept pushing the North Koreans back to the Yellow River the border with China, China. Responded with a massive counterattack of between thirteen thousand and three hundred thousand troops. This time it was the UN forces who were driven back a bloody stalemate on the ground developed as the US pounded North Korea from the air MacArthur, eventually was relieved of his command by Truman and replaced with general Matthew Ridgway. The US abandoned the idea of total victory and shifted to a holding action against the communist forces road said MacArthur embraced the idea that there's no substitute for victory. You beat the enemy, and they surrender. But Rhodes explained after the Chinese intervention, quote, we're still in a situation where there's got to be a substitute for victory because how are we going to fight the manpower of China? There's a realization that we can't fight this war to victory and it's hard for the American people to accept. The longer. The war stretched on the more popular it became back in the US, many of the soldiers sent to Korea where reservists who had served in World War, Two roads, explained they've got homes and families and jobs, and then they were called up and sent to fight another war. There was a feeling that this wasn't fair. Eventually Truman successor president. Dwight Eisenhower ran on a promise that he would go to Korea and seek an end to the conflict and actually did that a month before his inauguration in nineteen Fifty-three. But though, Eisenhower had ended the fighting the Korean war still shaped his policies road said, Eisenhower looked at this as the wrong war at the wrong time using the wrong weapons, he reaches the conclusion that with the Cold War going on with the Soviets, we have to plan for the long haul. We're going to sustain this kind of military deterrence that led to resources being pumped into the development of a massive nuclear deterrent. The could be used to contain the Soviets. Additionally, Eisenhower began attempting to form licenses with more and more countries in an effort to create a unified front to hold off communist aggression. We also spoke via Email with Charles k Armstrong, the Korea foundation professor of Korean studies in the social sciences at Columbia University. He said, the US was forced to take China more. Seriously as a military power. After fighting twist del mate in the Korean war general MacArthur, had severely underestimated the Chinese military's willingness to confront the US and capacity to fight leading to a bad route for you, enforces, the initial months after China entered the war.
