The article title was changed from the People's Liberation Army's Invasion of Xinjiang (1949) to The "Peaceful Liberation" of Xinjiang because the latter is a more historically accurate description of the event depicted in the article. Aside from the Osman Batur's Kazaks, none of the other belligerents fought the People's Liberation Army, whose entry into the region was preceded by political accommodations reached among the major parties. In this sense, it was more of a political takeover than an invasion. ContinentalAve (talk) 05:02, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
