Language balance[edit]

I add Filipino Language or Tagalog on the title to have a Neutral and Balance point of view the English (American's) and Filipino. (Just what in the Textbook was written on Philippines). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.6.181.194 (talk) 06:00, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

GAN quickfail[edit]

I am afraid I have quickfailed this article for GA, but it doesn't appear that it was properly nominated in any case. There is no GAN template on this page. So, I'm noting this here and removing it from the MH Announcements template. Please read WP:GAN/I for how to nominate an article for GA.

No mention of Arthur and Douglas MacArthur? Really?[edit]

Terminology: total-war[edit]

The Guerrilla war phase section says, in part, "The shift to guerrilla warfare drove the US Army to a 'total-war' doctrine." The term total-war as used here appears to me to conflict with the meaning described in the Total war WP article. I think that it would be better to say something like, "The shift to guerrilla warfare drove the US Army to adopt counter-insurgency tactics. However, the paragraph where the problematic term appears cites a source in support which I am unable to access. I don't know whether that term might have come from the source cited, or might have been coined by the WP editor introducing it in this article section.

Looking back, I see that the term was introduced to the article here by an anonymous editor in an edit which heavily revised the wording of a paragraph while retaining the cite to the source cited (and still cited) in support. I'm going to WP:BOLDly make the wording change suggested above. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 22:14, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

I agree that the use of the term does not correspond to the Wikipedia article, nor I think to the common definition. It is notable that the article doesn't mention the Boer War during which the term "concentration camp" was first used. --Iloilo Wanderer (talk) 15:11, 5 October 2014 (UTC)

Is philippineamericanwar.webs.com and Arnaldo Dumindin a credible source?[edit]

I am always suspicious of sources from free web hosting sites like webs.com. Few meet the WP:Third party sources standards. So is Dumindin at philippineamericanwar.webs.com credible? Can we find a more credible source to discuss the concentration camps? --Iloilo Wanderer (talk) 15:14, 5 October 2014 (UTC)

Gen. Gregorio del Pilar[edit]

In an article this long on the war, why is there no mention of Gen. Gregorio del Pilar? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 211.225.33.104 (talk) 01:56, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
