    GWI could refer to George Bush the father or Gulf War I
    GWII could refere to George Bush the son or Gulf War II
    GWIII thankfully the dynasty was ended by GWII

    an aside FYI

    An Acronym is when someone takes an existing phrase and shortens it utilizing letters from the phrase.

    A backronym is when you take an existing word and create a phrase...

    Bible, basic instructions before leaving earth
    Fear, false expectations appearing real
    Iacocca, I AM Chairman of Chrysler Corporation of America
