How and why did the United States take control of the Philippines in 1898?

Answers

The war between the United States and the Philippines is little known, and is often described by historians as "the first Vietnam" - mostly because it was the first time when the United States Army used the tactices of "scorched earth" to suppress and subdue the locals. The war ended with the defeat of the Philippines, resulting in occupation that lasted since 1898 until 1946. The war was a continuation of the Philippine revolution for independence; the First Philippine Republic refused to accept the conditions of the Treaty of Paris, according to which it was supposed to become an American territory.
