Paragraphs

The US switch to imperialist behavior that occurred in 1898 has been a topic of great historical attention. After all, the US has generally claimed to stand in opposition to the practice of taking colonies, to be an advocate of freedom, democracy, and self-government for all. Some historians believe that this imperialist period was a "Great Aberration", a mistake that the US would never repeat, and one that goes against everything the US stands for. Others think that America really continued to have a kind of "informal colonial" influence throughout the twentieth century. By "informal colonialism", they mean that the US has promoted democracy as a means to opening foreign markets for American manufactures and sources of raw materials. In this way, through a subtle dominance based on economics rather than direct politics, the US was able to create the same economic relationship that European powers had with their colonies. Under this view, the colony grabbing of 1898 (Guam, Hawaii, Philippines, Puerto Rico) was only the most obvious episode of American imperialism; it was the short period before the US discovered more subtle methods of economic domination, known as "neo-imperialism".

In this pic it refers to america as having all the brains. And this is more or less true because we do have one of the stongest armies to date. Thats what makes us so complete. Allowing us to learn other countries. The U.S thinks of themselves as superior to others.

In this drawing it shows the U.S as a more rutheless object. Far different from the usual buff Uncle Sam in the glory outfit that were used to. It shows him with a sword with blood on it. Could this be from other countries? Places the U.S has conquered. Maybe but it shows a more undiscreet side of the U.S.

In this drawing it depicts the U.S as being very vile. As you know it people look at the U.S as an stronghold of the world. And here it shows the U.S biting a chunk out of the world. And you can see the words boom. Showing that they not only are taking but also destroying or claiming it.
