Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page
Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.
Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

Reads, comically, like a US military report
Not only is this not NPOV, it is simply, comically awful: Wikipedia at its hilarious official-US-bias worst. This is supposed to be an encyclopedia? The use of letter-and-number references to US military units makes it look like somebody is putting in for some medals and ribbons, and wants to make sure everybody gets mentioned. The constant use of the word "enemy," along with the letter-and-number Pentagon references, is embarrassing.
This is important now because the new Netflix film Sand Castle is based on events in Baqubah. While obviously done from the standpoint of US troops and reflecting the experiences of scriptwriter Chris Roessner's two years in the area as a US soldier, the film takes a decidedly more balanced view (as the film's title suggests). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hotel de glace quebec (talk • contribs) 05:18, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
