Post Korean War event inclusion[edit]

The inclusion of many post Armistice incidents serves to expand the timeline of the Korean War far beyond the officially and commonly accepted end date; such inclusion is not historical and the various up-to-the-minute edits which accompany the "post Armistice" war events smacks of WP:RECENTISM. Moreover, some editors make the argument that "An Armistice is a (type of) ceasefire, a ceasefire is not (necessarily) the end of a war, therefore the Korean War has not ended." POV is the driving force behind the inclusion of such events and their accompanying edits. The arguments for and against assigning an actual end date for the war are in the Korean War article and in some of the related post Armistice articles. Still, this tag is added in order to bring the issue of the war's end to light. Discussion should take place on the appropriate page(s). --S. Rich (talk) 22:30, 9 December 2010 (UTC)
