First Korean War (1950-1953)

The Korean War started on 25 June 1950 when the Democratic People's Republic of Korea's Korean's People's Army (KPA) crossed the 38th parallel invading South Korea. With support from China and equipment from the USSR the KPA quickly overwhelmed the Republic of Korea Army (ROK Army) and occupied most of South Korea except for a small portion called the Pusan Perimeter. Following the Battle of Inchon U.N. forces led by the United States pushed the KPA back behind the 38th and begin invading North Korea only to be stopped at the Yalu River when Chinese People's Volunteer Army (PVA) crossed over the river and pushed U.N. forces back. With China's involvement the war entered a stalemate from July 1951 - July 1953 On 27 July 1953 the war ended when North and South Korea signed the Armistice Agreement. With the war virtually over both Korea's entered a cold stalemate that lasted with a few incursions and acts of aggression by North Korea until December 31, 2011.

New years Eve attack and invasion

On December 31, 2011 in what has now become known as the New years eve invasion North Korean forces crosed the 38th parallel This allowed the KPA to capture Seoul the capital of South Korea, thankfully U.S. Special forces evacuated South Korean government officials before they could be captured by North Korean forces. Following a Joint resolution by the U.N. Security Council condemning the invasion, President Harrison ordered the U.S. Air Force to begin bombing North Korean targets while enlarging U.S. forces in the area in the event that the U.S. would need to intervene. He also authorized the use of Nuclear weapons in the event of a nuclear attack by the North on the South in a retaliatory strike only.

Intervention by the United States and invasion by South Korea

On March 21, 2012 following two months of a virtual stalemate US President Harrison ordered U.S. forces to intervene in order to protect the balance of power the area. Within a month the ROK Army and U.S. forces pushed the KPA back to the 38th parallel. On May 1, 2012 the South Korean army crossed over the 38th and invaded the north to end what it called the Dictatorship of a madman and bring about peace to the Korean people. The United States did not take part in the invasion, however they didn't condemn it. U.S. forces remand in South Korea allowing South Korean forces to push forward without worry of losing ground in the south.

Attempted nuclear attack by North Korea

On June 17, 2012 officials within the CIA who were operating in the North learned that the North was preparing a Nuclear attack on the South Korean capital. When the knowledge was giving to President Harrison he authorized the take off of a B-2 Bomber with a nuclear payload that in the event of a nuclear strike would bomb the North Korean capital. At 12:43 AM four F-22 fighter jets intercepted a North Korean bomber over the Sea of Japan because of the warning issued by the CIA officials ordered the bomber shot down. When the bomber crashed into the ocean the primitive nuclear weapons on board detonated causing a plum of water to jet up 10,000 feet in the air. After this attempt President Harrison ordered US forces to cross over the 38th parallel and bring the war to an end.
