The insurgents were brutal and unrelenting in their tactics and the American commanders concluded that they simply had to kill them all to suppress the rebellion, which the Americans did, causing some criticism back in the United States. Chronic budget deficits, including a shortage of funds in mid-2015, hampered the government’s ability to implement proposed development programs, but the economy is back in balance with many indicators, including foreign exchange reserves, interest rates, inflation, and FDI moving in the right direction.

Energy shortages, instability in neighboring states, and lack of adequate transportation linkages to other countries continue to handicap private sector growth. Shortly after the conquests, Catholic missionaries�Jesuits until 1571, Franciscans and Dominicans after that�attempted to convert Native Americans to Christianity. It works on your desktop computer, tablet, or mobile phone. Senator Albert Beveridge was a leading light of the day and eventually joined Teddy Roosevelt’s third party when he ran for president in 1912.� In January of 1900, Beveridge gave a famous speech in which he called the Filipino people “children,” totally incapable of “self-government.”� It was a direct echo of Kipling’s sentiments.� McKinley told a group of Methodist ministers: “The truth is I did not want the Philippines and when they came to us as a gift from the gods, I did not know what to do with them.” [237] The invasion’s benevolence quickly became evident.� The Filipino people could not be kept from childish notions of self-government, and the USA quickly waged a war against them, in much the same way they prosecuted the exterminations of Native Americans, even using the same rhetoric at times.� In the Philippines, while many thousands of “militant” natives were killed, the USA murdered between 200,000 and 600,000 civilians, using starvation and other tactics, including torture.� The Americans called the Filipinos “goo-goos,” and waged scorched-earth campaigns.� It was a preview of what the USA did to Southeast Asia during the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.� “Goo-goo” was a direct predecessor to “gook” and the same kinds of “kill-all-the-civilians” tactics were used in both wars, to “help” those people.� Tacitus remarked on the Roman style of warfare and subjugation: “They make a desert and they call it peace.”� One American o fficer in the Philippines justified the exercise with: “There is no use mincing words…If we decided to stay, we must bury all qualms and scruples about Weylerian cruelty, the consent of the governed, etc., and stay.� We exterminated the American Indian, and I guess most of us are proud of it, or at least believe the end justified the means; and we must have no scruples about exterminating this other race standing in the way of progress and enlightenment, if it is necessary.” [238] � There was little domestic dissent to that American adventure. [239] � When atrocity stories began trickling into the USA, Philippine hearings were held, but they were rigged by Henry Cabot Lodge, and Beveridge assisted in the whitewash, which has been a standard outcome in virtually every governmental investigation into its own conduct, and is a pattern that holds to this day.� Not everyb ody in America cheered the Philippine invasion.� There was a vigorous Anti-Imperialist League, and Mark Twain was its leading spokesperson.� Twain likely considered the last years of his life his most important, as he led campaigns against American and European imperialism.� Mark Twain wrote about King Leopold’s genocidal efforts, but because American corporations were investors in the rape of Africa, the publication of Twain’s King Leopold’s Soliloquy was almost completely suppressed in the USA and remains one of his least known works.
