-“When North Korean forces invaded South Korea on June 25, 1950, it set off three years of dangerous fighting. The US, along with 15 other United Nations members, came to South Korea’s aid in repelling the invasion. North Korean troops were driven back almost to the Yalu river, where Chinese troops flooded across and added their strength to the North. Russian aid and a few unpublicized MIG pilots turned the tide for s time and drove UN troops back almost to the original border separating the two belligerents. An armistice was signed on July 27, 1953, leaving the two Korean armies approximately where they had been at the beginning of the conflict. Oops, crossed swords once again with the music police. Music was Simon and Garfinkel singing “Puff, the Magic Dragon,” which was always considered a drug-oriented piece of music and was banned on several radio stations during the war. Now it has been replaced by “Alien Wasteland,” performed by D.C. Slater.”-
