Tell me about the Philippine-American war.

It was a continuation of the Philippine independence war against Spain that the Americans originally supported. However, during peace talks the Spanish, instead of releasing the Philippines, simply transferred governance to the American military, who then simply sat on the Philippines as military governors. Aguinaldo's government wasn't recognized by the US, who wanted to create their own government in order to secure a military base and influence in the region, something Aguinaldo, a hard isolationist, wasn't cooperating on. Thus, when an armed revolutionary guard was shot for approaching the US compound, the tension escalated into all out war that ended in an American victory.

It was basically a "testrun" by the American government of its capabilities to fight in overseas conflicts, and was essential to building its influence in the Pacific.

A war that Flips forget about even though how many times it was mentioned in History classes. Americans are still generally viewed as heroes rather than invaders.

I bet a common Flip would be oblivious that millions of civilians died through out the war.

Want to know more about the it? Heneral Luna (movie) should give you an overview in the Filipino perspective

A real cavaet it was the most brutal war we fought. Atrocities were happening on both sides. American concentration camps were created in remote villages to insure a proper count of population during conflicts and able to weed out the insurrectos (rebels)

After the Battle of (massacre)Balangiga General Jacob Smith for the pacification of Samar ordered " I want no prisoners. I wish for you to kill and burn ; the more you kill and burn the better it will pleases me. The interior of Samar must be a howlin wildnerness" Thus everyone beyond ten was put into the firing squad
