  The Philippine-American War


The following images are a special collection of photos to help us remember those who lost their lives fighting for an independent homeland from their American aggressors. American history has deliberate selective memory in regards to the wars it imposed on other countries, to satisfy their self-serving needs under the disguise of bringing democracy to other nations of our world.

These are photos of the torture and execution of Filipino patriots dubbed as “insurgents” by the first American Visiting Forces on Philippine soil (1899-1913). That U.S. invasion and occupation in 1899 was the original Iraq (and Afghanistan) and the “first Vietnam in Asia”.

These photos of the torture and execution of Filipino patriots were once again replayed in more recent times in Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo.

 


The Moro people resisted U.S. invasion of the island of Mindanao, Philippines with such courage and bravery such as in the Battles of Bud Bagsak and Bud Dajo, that the armed resistance to U.S. occupation was extended till 1913 (though the U.S. officially declared the “Philippine Insurrection” terminated by 1902) . The Moro resistance to both Spanish and U.S. colonization is often downplayed by official historical accounts, which only recognize Filipino revolts and resistance.
