If Truman took McArthur's advice would we have a problem with North Korea now?

McArthur wanted to nuke them during the Korean war but Truman refused. Do you think it would have changed anything now?

    McArthur wanted to nuke China, not North Korea. It would have changed alot of things. North Korea would have unified under capitalist south Korea and things would be way better.

    I've wondered about that, but Truman was right that he took McArthur out when Mac went over his head.

    maybe but it also might have started a nuclear war. russia gave the north MiGs and other weapons during the war, so if we did they might have given them that too

    Korea as a whole would have been communist if they listen to MAcArthur
