This is good too.

"A Perspective on Korea’s Participation in the Vietnam War"



"One thing about both Rhee and Kim is that neither was a "puppet" of the superpowers. Rather, they decided to become the puppeteers to the superpowers, and they did it rather well."


The Korean war was a tragic confluence of ineptitude and abdication on the part of the two superpowers in dealing with their little power princes, coupled with the rise of Cold War power politics as so eloquently described by Polk. The US sponsoring Rhee virtually assured the Soviet Union seeing propping up Kim as their only possible path.


Many, many thanks to Mr. Polk for quenching my thirst.
