Or "Internal Conflict resolution" sounds sooo much more diplomatic, despite 136 thousand dead Americans during deliberations.

Technically speaking, we were never at war with North Korea.  Truman sent US troops to Korea in June 1950 in response to a UN Security Council vote.  There was never any authorization by Congress for any military action in Korea.  Truman called it a "Police Action."

People often confuse Vietnam with the term "police action," however, Congress did in fact authorize the use of military force in Vietnam in August 1964 which made Vietnam officially a war and not a "police action."  That was never true for Korea.

The fault for this constitutional failure falls on Congress.  They failed to exert their constitutional authority and allowed the President to usurp their power.  It was never put to a vote, only the congressional leaders were consulted and they gave Truman their tacit approval by doing nothing.

Welcome to the forum. Hopefully you will enjoy it here.
