During the korean war, which of these individuals wished to avoid a nuclear confrontation between the united states and the soviet union? a. us president harry truman b. us general douglas macarthur c. north korean dictator kim il-sung d. us secretary of state john dulles
A. US President Harry Truman
General MacArthur, angered over Chinese involvement in North Korea, wanted the United States to bomb China. US president Harry Truman disagreed. He was concerned that bombing China would lead to war with China’s ally, the Soviet Union, and potentially to the use of nuclear weapons. Because Truman disagreed with MacArthur’s foreign policy, he fired the popular general.
The correct answer to this question would be alternative A)"Harry Truman."
Harry S. Truman was the 33rd president of the United States of America, and he was the one in office during the Korean War.
He wished to avoid atomic confrontation against Russia. Douglas MacArthur was actually inclined to using nukes, and said that the decision of using them or not should be his, and no the the president's.
Wanted to avoid a nuclear confrontation
