What effect did communist China have on military struggle during the Cold War?

China was a wild card during the Cold War. They fought the United States in the Korean War when they thought MacArthur might invade China; it had nothing to do with them being 'communist'. While many in the US Congress thought China automatically supported the USSR, that was incorrect. The Chinese wanted to be recognized by the US, and only supported the Soviets as a way of forcing the US to recognize them. After Nixon went to China, the Chinese took a pro-capitalist stance that made them the economic powerhouse they are today.

Who did the US and the UN recognize as the true government of china?

For the bulk of the cold war, the US tried to recognize Nationalist China as the real China, due to General Chang Kai Shek and his wife and the historical friendship the US had with them from WWII. But upon their deaths, as well as the Vietnam War, Red China soon evolved over time to be recognized, because of the negotiations that had to be done (extracting ourselves out of the war & getting our POWs returned). Nixon's visit to Communist China did alot to bring recognition to that nation. After all, just showing up there, demonstrated that the country existed.
