    Stalin was actually opposed to the war at first, but kim il sung talked him into the idea, arguing that an invasion of the south would be swift. so technically stalin did approve of the attack before hand. I'm pretty sure Stalin and Mao both expected a response from the Americans, that's why Stalin was originally opposed to the idea. Stalin wasn't outraged by the attack because he had already gave his approval for the attack to begin in the first place. He figured that, the U.S. had little interest in the region by the time of his decision and provided the green light to attack. I guess the last one.. well..Chinese did provide support for the north Koreans.. they would provide additional troops if needed. The soviets didn't want to get directly involved but provided the most arms and training. I guess you can say this is true but mostly the soviet union provided the most support. This is the beginning of the cold war, when larger powers, the U.S. and Soviet Union provided arms and support to smaller countries, and those smaller nations fight to further the agenda of the larger powers.

    @lynrivera81 that's basically the gist of it. once the U.S. advanced further into North Korea, the chinese felt that the U.S. was too close for comfort and staged a full counter attack; the U.S. was pushed back to the 38th parallel and the war technically never ended; there's just an armistice but that's it.
