Colonization of the Philippines Term Paper

… S. The initial desire to colonize the Philippines was described as a means to thwart oppressive Spanish rule, but the U.S. profited by joining with the Philippines in free trade, enjoying military advantages of installation procurement in an Asian country, expanding into the Asian markets, spreading Christianity, and demonstrating itself as a major national power. Political pressures eventually led the U.S. To grant political independence to the Philippines in 1946, but with the request for free military space and equal commercial rights as the Filipinos, maintaining the U.S. demonstration of self-interest in the region.

U.S. Foreign Policy in Southern Africa Term Paper

… ¶ … U.S. Foreign Policy in southern Africa

The United States' foreign policy towards Southern Africa has long couched between the Cold War paradigm and hasty decisions of self-service. In his treatise on the American treatment of Africa's southern region, Helen Purkitt aptly described the "tilt" towards South Africa that started in the 1970s and continued later under the Reagan regime. "The characteristic decision-making process toward the region was aptly summarized," she wrote, "in the comprehensive policy review on U.S. foreign policy initiated by Kissinger during the early Nixon administration as being ad hoc and based on momentary costs and benefits." The most nascent interactions between the Southern African states and the United States were limned by the American philosophy so wed to the status…. [read more]
