I suggest that all the "people's liberation" armies be given article titles which do NOT give the impression that Wikipedia endorses them as:

  • being "of the people" - as opposed to being imposed by force "on the people"
  • working for liberation - as opposed to enforcing tyranny

These armies are controversial; therefore, Wikipedia should avoid endorsing them or condemning them. Uncle Ed 12:31, 20 October 2005 (UTC)

The comment is very much unnecessary. Wikipedia as such does not endorse any political faction at all, and no article carries any warning text to the reader. Whether these groups would be particularily controversial could be debated. Personally, I believe more people in the world have antagonistic feelings towards George W. Bush than any of the groups mentioned on this list. --Soman 17:05, 23 October 2005 (UTC)
