"The Korean Conflict was also not always known as the Korean Conflict, it was known as the Korean War. It was corrected by the U.S. Congress in 1999. The was done by The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1999 (section 1067). Senator Strom Thurman, 1998 chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, sponsored the provision."

"Korean 'Conflict' Now Officially the Korean War"

"Although we have always referred to the conflict in Korea as the Korean War, officially it has been something less; a Police Action; a Conflict...not a war. To the men and women who served in Korea, and to the families of people lost in Korea, it was unmistakably a War.

The U.S. Congress has finally corrected the misnomer. The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1999 (section 1067) includes a provision that changes references to the 'Korean Conflict' to references to the Korean War. The provision was sponsored by Senator Strom Thurman (R-SC), last year's chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, reportedly at the urging of Senator John Warner (R-VA), current chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee. Senator Warner is, himself, a Korean War veteran."

The above is a good example of our backasswards world and the jerks in it.

The first reference/quote, above, has it phrased as though it had been changed from War to Conflict...

(Or am I the only one reading it thataway?)

Ah, me....
