Throughout the Cold War Asia, China’s involvements in the Korean War and the Vietnam War were similar by supporting North Korea and North Vietnam. However, China’s involvements in both wars were different that Chinese Communist soldiers were diligently fought in Korea and China’s engagement was inhibited to the arrangement of defensive troops.The Taiwan Strait Crisis of 1958 also was a significant hotspot in the Cold War Asia that it not only described Chinese Communist Party actively attack Taiwan, such as ordering People’s Liberation Army to shell the Jinmen islands, without physical threat from other countries, but also highlighted the promotion of Mao’s continuous revolution. Furthermore, the Geneva Conference of 1954 reflected Chinese Communist Party has strongly persuaded Vietnam to divide the country for preventing possible America’s intervention. Considering the critical factors of Cold War Asia, China’s vigorous intervention in the Korean War, the Vietnam War in 1964-1969, the Taiwan Strait Crisis of 1958, and the Geneva Conference of 1954 represented its active role in the making of Cold War Asia because Mao believed these events were opportunities for him to maintain revolutionary incentive, to spread the ideology of communism and to demonstrate the ability and strength of Chinese Communists on the international stage. Although we are able to recognize the active involvement of CCP in the Korean War and the Vietnam War through the knowledge of both wars were occurred outside of China and consistently supported by CCP for considering Mao’s China played an active role in making the Cold War Asia, the crucial motivation that induced CCP to encountered both wars was Mao’s goal of spreading Chinese revolutionary influence to the world and contradicting the capitalism.  In Mao’s China & The Cold War, Chen Jian indicated that the CCP’s propaganda during the Korean War related to “The Great Movement to Resist American and Assist Korea” quickly went beyond the original focus of “safeguarding our homes and defending our motherland,” which introduced a new stage to emphasize the contribution of Communist leadership to create an authoritative “new China” (Chen 95). By looking at this slogan of the propaganda, it was valid to interpret that the Korean War was contemplated as Mao’s revolutionary war because the slogan proved that the Chinese Communist Party was fighting for liberation against American capitalists and imperialists. There was another evidence that demonstrated CCP’s intention for participating in the Korean War was to expand the influence of Chinese revolution and to defeat imperialists. On the other hand, there may have some individuals argued that Mao’s China has played a reactive role in making Cold War Asia because the participation of CCP was reasonable for protecting the border between North Korea and China from invasion of U.S. and UN troops. However, this claim was solely Mao and CCP’s assumption of the possible invasion by U.S. and UN troops. This argument also expressed the subjective opinion of Mao and CCP because U.S. and UN troops did not address their attack for the border between North Korea and China, which meant Mao and CCP used their assumption as the justification for China’s involvement in the Korean War. After examining China’s active role in the Korean War, similarly, China’s engagement in the Vietnam War 1964-1969 can be evaluated as an active role in Cold War Asia. In China and the Vietnam Wars, 1950-1975, Qiang Zhai argued that Mao believed the U.S. planned to occupy Taiwan and to colonize South Vietnam and South Korea by expanding their military occupancy (Zhai 141).
