Imperialist U.S. hoisted flag on Fort Santiago, Manila
1898 - The emerging power that is the United
States proceeds with its imperialistic plan of invading the Philippines
as Gen. Wesley Merritt is instructed to make the Filipinos recognize the military occupation and "authority"
of the Bald Eagle nation; some three months after Americans first
conned Aguinaldo into cooperating in the war against Spain; some two
months after Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo y Famy declared Philippine Independence and allowed the free entry of US soldiers into the archipelago; five days after the Mock Battle of Manila
made it appear that it is the Americans and not the Filipinos who have
defeated the Spaniards in the Southeast Asian archipelago; four days
after the western aliens began their colonial propaganda efforts when Gen. Merritt issued a proclamation calling on the Filipinos not to resist US invasion; and a day after the the second expeditionary [translation: invasion] forces of the looming 20th century imperialist nation, the United States, arrive and land at Parañaque; in seven months, the imperialist American forces in the Philippines will instigate the Filipino-American War (1899-1914) in the vile pre-arranged scheme of imperialist U.S. President William McKinley to make their Senate approve the ridiculous, baseless Treaty of Paris and, hence, the military operations against the Philippine Republic.
