Article title[edit]

"PSYOPS" is inappropriate and POV jargon used by the military to obfuscate. Reliable sources, including the dissertation and a significant magazine article, call these comic books "propaganda." polarscribe (talk) 15:47, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

PSYOP is not inappropriate. It is valid and it is not the same as propaganda. The comics within the article are either created or associated with the US government and/or military. They were created with an understanding of the target audience, culture and society, as done within PSYOP. (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 16:01, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

The reliable sources call them propaganda. It is standard, neutral and non-obfuscatory terminology for political publications offered by a government in order to influence a population. polarscribe (talk) 16:04, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
