30 MAY

Gen. Vicente R. Lukban

1901 - P. Abayan, the local chief of Balangiga, Samar informs Gen. Vicente R. Lukban that the Principales of his town have agreed that they will maintain a policy of contrived friendship with the imperialist enemy troops during the early stage of the Philippine-American War (1899-1914); the seething desire of the Balangiga residents to fight for the preservation of Philippine Independence the Filipinos earlier gained against the Spanish colonizers will ultimately be quelled by the fierce brutality of United States Gen. Jacob Smith's "kill and burn" policy that will soon turn Samar into a "howling wilderness"; the Filipino freedom-fighters in Samar has engaged in guerrilla-style offensive to defend the fledgling Southeast Asian nation's dignity and independence against the pale-skinned North American enemies, including the surprise Balanginga incident/attack in their church headquarters four months later, prompting the gruesomely barbaric 'retaliatory' order of the vile invading Bald Eagle army's Gen. Smith to "kill everyone over ten."
