On Sept. 14, 1950, just prior to landing at Inchon, we were briefed that there were 100,000 Chinese massed on the Manchurian border. It then puzzles me as to how MacArthur could have been surprised in November.
I agree with Lee.
MacA probably knew about the possible intervention of

He probably thought he could beat back the Chinese
by dropping some A-bombs on Manchuria.
