tru they did da same thing to me when i was juz a youngstaa!!! they taught me to hate both spanish and japanese!!
da reason why they taught us to like the americans becuz they are actually the ones that helped organize the country. they helped the filipino government rebuild. they organized our education system by bringing the thomasites to teach the filipinos. they supported the military, and etc. they did commit some atrocities, but not as much as the spanish and the japanese. they were actually nicer to the filipinos after the spanish filipino war. they liberated us from the hated japanese and spanish. without their help then we would have ended as slaves for the japanese empire.
but at the same time i luv japanese ppl too!!! they are not the same ppl from ww2
The Americans nicer??? Phiillippines was wHat Iraq is now? What a joke LOL.
Here u go the consequences of the Filipino american after they supposedly helped us against the Spanish.Thats WAY more than what the filipinos suffered under the spanish and WW2 Japanese aggression(and american artillery) combined.
During the war, 4,324 American soldiers were killed and 2,818 were wounded. There were also 2,000 casualties that the Philippine Constabulary suffered during the war, over a thousand of which were fatalities. Philippine military deaths are estimated at 20,000 (16 thousand actually counted) while civilian deaths numbered in 250,000 to 1,000,000 Filipinos.
Tha Japanese are very polite(useually) and proffessional people, I dont think anyone in my family has anything against the Japanese its better to look forward into the future when it comes to these things. But that doesnt mean we should forget because it could always happen again, I mean just look at the US a 108 years from the so called Phillippine Inserrection (LOL) and thier still at it in another part of the world.
