MacArthur’s Plot for War with China

Tales of the American Empire | October 28, 2021

One myth found in history books is that the United States was surprised by Chinese intervention in the Korean war. This was no surprise because China warned that it would intervene if American forces moved north of the 38th parallel. War with China was sought by General Douglas MacArthur who wanted an excuse to overthrow its new communist government. He assumed that American airpower could demolish Chinese armies while Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalist forces landed from Taiwan and marched to Beijing. However, the Chinese army proved far better than expected in Korea and stymied MacArthur’s secret plan. American President Harry Truman ended this plot by firing General MacArthur.

  1. “War with China was sought by General Douglas MacArthur who wanted an excuse to overthrow its new communist government. He assumed that American airpower could demolish Chinese armies while Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalist forces landed from Taiwan and marched to Beijing”.

    And, American forces were driven back to the current border between Nth and Sth Korea, and have been booted out of Vietnam, have spent 20 wasted years in Afghanistan, and have failed to gain victory in Syria.

    And, in the process Multi thousands of young American soldiers have been fed into the Mince Grinder of War for Israel. And NOBODY at the TOP has been held accountable, and those innocent young Americans, died in vain(for the MIC)…..but, the “Body Bag” manufacturers made a “Killing”……….
