The United States imperialize the Philippines during the 1800’s,
planning to use it as a base to get closer to China, and ended up making amuch bigger impression. Over time, their rule over the Philippines startedto shape the people and land that the US had taken over to become moreAmericanized and modern. This style of ruling, however, was verydifferent from that of other imperialist countries. This style is what made
the United States’ imperial rule so well known to our world today.
The United States had reasoning behind their imperialist move to thePhilippines, and their plan would be sought through until the end. The USwanted to be close to China so they could explore and access the land.Coincidentally, the Philippines are very close to China and create a great base for making trips to the country whenever needed. On the other hand,Japan decided to Imperialize because they wanted to enhance production,gain nationalism, and get raw materials and resources. This colonization of the US and many other countries created waves with the people there andsometimes did not create the most stable environments.The United Stated did a lot that made the Filipinos angry, and causedthem to revolt. In the Philippines, Filipino's protests were smaller andweaker because of the lack of elites to run the protests.
