Writerfella here -
To show that EuroMan NEVER forgets anything but the words in his own treaties with Natives, 'Indian Country' has been a US military phrase for 'enemy country' since before the Korean War for any enemy of the United States. It especially came into currency during the Viet Nam Era, as is noted in writerfella's screenplay, RUN BEFORE THE BUFFALO. At this point, it is not known for its use in Grenada or in either Gulf War I or Gulf War II. Now, one wonders whether it will be used in the programed war with Iran?
