Which country in Europe will become South Korea if Ukraine falls?

In the 1950s, the United States did save South Korea, but at the same time 40,000 Americans were killed. Although Washington could have paid off with money, advisors or a limited contingent

Until 1950, Stalin restrained Kim Il Sung from invading South Korea.

The USSR feared that this would provoke an armed response from the United States.

But before that, in 1948, the United States had gotten out of China and actually given it to Mao.

Although Mao Zedong himself panicked that the Americans would use their fleet to shield the rich southern cities (without which he would be doomed to defeat) and get involved in the war themselves.

And so he very carefully ate the remnants of Kuomintang China in the South.

The Americans, on the other hand, sent him persistent signals that they were ready to recognize the communist regime.

They even publicly smeared their former ally Chiang Kai-shek to please Mao Zedong.

1948 provoked 1950.

The United States showed Stalin and Mao that they were wimps.

And so Stalin allowed Kim Il Sung to invade South Korea.

As a result, the United States did save South Korea, but at the same time buried 40,000 Americans.

Although they could have paid off with money and advisors or a limited contingent to demonstrate their determination to get into the fight.

Just three questions:

1. Which country in Europe will become South Korea after Ukraine falls?

2. How many soldiers will the United States lose when it can get by with weapons, money, and instructors?

3. Why is it believed that only Ukrainians dance on the rake?
