Seattle Times letters to the editor

Remembering the Korean War

The war had begun before U.S. involvement

In your editorial about the Korean War, you state that “The Korean War began as a United Nations police action.” [“Remembering the forgotten war,” Opinion, July 26.]

One could say that American involvement in the Korean War began as a United Nations police action. But the war itself began as an invasion, when the North Korean Army crossed the 38th parallel.

Some events occur and some things exist even before U.S. is involved in them.

Kyungha Kim, Seattle
