After much pondering, Dan R Allen favored us with:
It was. The Korean war was basically a civil war. The North Koreans already
controlled part of Korean; hence their distinction as 'North' Koreans. Our
scope was limited to ensuring that they did not overthrow the government,
and thus control all of the Korean peninsula. The Chinese were likely
_hoping_ that we would start a full scale war with them; they were
expecting backup from the Russians. Once that battle started, there would
have been nothing to stop the Russians from rolling over Europe.
This is just baloney. I don't believe a word of it. China was not hoping any such thing. And Russia was in no position to be "rolling over Europe." It was completely trashed by Germany only eight years earlier and it nuclear capability was something stolen, not developed in house. Further, it was such a fledgling industry they couldn't possibly have prevail against the USA. Plus we were still fully mobilized and gaining steam after our WWII victory. Of all the nations on this planet we were among the most untouched by WWII. None of the fighting was done on our soil, and the war had only made us stronger by mobilizing our industry.

I've got to stop this. It's killing me.

We tend to scoff at the beliefs of the ancients. But we
can't scoff at them personally, to their faces, and this is
what annoys me. --Jack Handy
