US Army Genocide in the Philippines (video)

The American conquest of the Philippines occurred throughout 1900 as American troops gradually defeated the Philippine Army. Remnants of this army continued the fight as guerrillas in rural areas while the US Army deployed over 70,000 troops to occupy and run this new American colony. This led to armed attacks on American occupiers. The well-trained and better equipped American soldiers rarely had trouble dealing with local insurgents, but in several cases large groups of Filipinos inflicted heavy casualties. This resulted in negative newspaper stories back home since uprisings did not match rhetoric that Filipinos had been liberated. Attacks angered American Generals who implemented genocide tactics used back home against Indian tribes. The exact number of civilians massacred by US troops will never be known, but Filipino historians believe it was around 50,000 killed from 1900-1902. A much larger number died from the resulting famine and disease.

    1. Spoken like a true comrade, lenin, stalin, mao, pol pott, never hurt anyone inocent.
      To create the “utopia” the undermenchen or succsesfull farmers or people with higher education must die, anything is ok for the for the greater good when it comes to communism or national socialism.

        1. If you like anarchy then you should move to somalia, libya or afghanistan, the gangster with the largest clan or biggest guns rule.
          Their countries have been torn down over and over by other nations and by local warlloards.

          1. “If you like anarchy, you should move somewhere dominated by MULTIPLE regimes of the kind you dislike rather than just one.”

            Fixed, no charge. Too bad it makes no sense at all.
