Why The Korean War Has Been "Forgotten"

This past Saturday marked the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Korean War armistice that ended the hostilities between North and South Korea.  Lasting from 1950-1953, the war that was catalyzed by conflicting negotiations over the reunification of post-World War II divisions resulted in over 2.8 million casualties, separated tens of thousands of families, and left both Koreas in shambles. 

Despite these tragedies, the war is often referred to as "the Forgotten War" since the majority of the world quickly lost interest in the fighting soon after it began, mostly due to the fact that the war was unable to produce any positive political outcomes.
