My beliefs for today

     Today, I believe that the United States should not get involved in conflicts that don’t concern them. Our troops have fought in wars and been exposed to more conflicts and deaths throughout the years. Too many foreign wars are wrecking our economy and causing problems that take years to resolve. Families should have the chance to see their loved ones home for a couple of years at least. If we need to get in involved in any conflicts it should be because another nation has started something with us, not the fact that we help other countries who are weak.

Historical Website #3

Differences between the Spanish and Filipino wars against America are discussed. According to the website the definition of "Philippine Insurrection" was not the correct term being used, the conflict did not fit the definition of an insurrection. For it to have been an insurrection, the U.S. would have had to have been in some sort of control of the island when the conflict began.

Primary Document #2

"Our opponents put forward as their chief objection that we have robbed these people of their liberty, and have taken them and hold them in defiance of the doctrine of the Declaration of Independence in regard to the consent of the governed. As to liberty, they have never had it, and have none now, except when we give it to them protected by the flag and armies of the United States. The taking of the Philippines does not violate the principles of the Declaration of Independence, but will spread them among a people who have never known liberty."
- Henry Cabot Lodge (1900)

2, 12-Sentence Paragraphs: Philippine Insurrection

     About 100 years ago, on August 12, 1898, the Spanish American War came to an end. After the Spanish-American war, as part of the 1898 signing of the Treaty of Paris, Spain agreed to give up the Philippine islands prior to the United States paying them $20 million dollars. The agreement gave the United States the passageway to gain ownership of the Philippines. Except, General Emilio Aguinaldo declared the Philippines as independent from Spain in the same year of 1898. Under his rule, he established the first known Asian republic with a democratic constitution. Shortly after, President McKinley stated that the Philippines would not be independent. The statement from the President caused fighting to break out and the conflicts to begin. This would be the cause for the Philippine–American War, also known as, the Philippine Insurrection to begin. To my knowledge, the war was as an armed conflict between the United States and Filipino rebels. The war was part of many conflicts in the Filipinos struggle for independence, prior to the Philippine Revolution and the Spanish–American War. Nevertheless, fighting broke out between U.S. and Filipino revolutionary forces on February 4, 1899. As a result, shots were fired between Filipino and American patrols near a village; the beginning of war had started.

 

     The beginning of war was something the U.S. anticipated. They wanted to have the Philippines under control because it would be a perfect territory to secure goods, have access to Asia at times of war, and for trade purposes as well. All the countries agreed with the decision, except for the Filipinos because they wanted independence. They revolted because they were determined to have independence; in their minds they wanted their country to be their own. As a result of their rebellion an Insurrection began. The term “insurrection” is a violent uprising against a government or authority. Today, this war isn’t really known as the Philippine Insurrection because the U.S didn’t control all of the Philippines, only a few areas because the areas had no troops or government control. After the start of the war, within days, American troops spread outward towards Manila, using all the weapons they had. The Filipinos were doing so poorly, while under the leadership of General Emilio Aguinaldo, they had begun to resort to guerilla warfare, and thousands of American soldiers were killed by the tactic. When President McKinley realized what was going on, he decided that the only way for this conflict to be resolved was to capture Aguinaldo. On March 23, 1901, General Frederick Funston captured Aguinaldo in Palanan, Isabela; with the help of Filipinos who joined the Americans side. A couple of years later, Aguinaldo agreed to do what the United States asked, formally recognizing the United States had power over the Philippines. In conclusion, the war ended on July 4, 1902.
