A few years ago in fact going back over 110 years it was the "Philippine Insurrection" not the "Philippine-American War." Before Obama and his leftist got in to power there was no such thing as the "Philippine-American War. If you were to have even googled it a few years ago nothing would have came up.
I first noticed maybe two years ago when all reference to the "Philippine Insurrection" on all government websites were being changed in the name of political correctness to the "Philippine-American War."
But you go to any historically correct history website you will find no war named the "Philippine-American War." Only liberal revisionist history websites will you find it. Go in to any library in America and you will not find one book published before 2011 that has any thing dealing with a war named the "Philippine-American War."
Just this morning on the DP I was looking at a thread under the "Military" threads about a Congressional Medal of Honor recipient. Go to the CMH website and every soldier or sailor who was awarded the CMO in the Philippine from 1899-1903 says the "Philippine Insurrection." -> CMOHS.org - Full Archive
It was last year that Wikipedia changed the title of the topic "Philippine Insurrection" and renamed it the "Philippine-American War." From their talk page link: -> Talk:Philippine
"> Removal of "Philippine Insurrection"I believe that at the time this war started on February 4, 1899, the First Philippine Republic was already a state, which had convened a Congress by September of 1898 and declared a new Constitution by January of 1899. Spain had no right to cede the Philippines during the Treaty of Paris since Spanish presence was defunct ever since America occupied Manila. Therefore, this must not be also known as Philippine Insurrection which was fought between American soldiers and Filipino revolutionaries. The Revolutionary Army was replaced by a regular Filipino army as early as June of 1898. Hope someone supports me here. Arius1998 (talk) 12:58, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
Oppose. The alternative names are names by which the subject is also known under. Even if they might be technically wrong, as long as that name was once (or still is) used widely in some sources, it needs to be mentioned. In this case, while I agree that this was properly a war, it was widely known as the "Philippine Insurrection" to the American media. Therefore it must be retained. See MOS:LEADALT. The title "Philippine–American War" and the succeeding paragraphs should be enough to clarify that the "insurrection" moniker is incorrect.-- OBSIDIAN†SOUL 13:21, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
Then maybe we could just omit the term Filipino revolutionaries if Wikipedia rules would let the Philippine Insurrection remain. I believe that the Filipino army, or at least the ones under the Aguinaldo government, had been a regular fighting force under an organized military hierarchy from June 1898 to November 1899.

The term "revolutionary" in this sense does mean against the Americans, imo. But to the previous revolution against Spain, the term is merely carried over since they were the revolutonaries who helped the US in the war.-- OBSIDIAN†SOUL 12:06, 18 December 2012 (UTC) "<
I wonder what the liberals plan to reneme the Vietnam War as ?
