Magical Milk Pic-o-the-Week
"Above image scanned from an original ca.1899-1900 photograph taken by an American photographer during the American invasion and occupation of the Philippines. After America defeated the Spanish interests in the Philippines, many Filipino died trying to stop the imperialist take-over of their country by American Military, hoping to prevent the forced annexation of the Philippines to America. America at that time was anti-democracy, and anti-independence.....especially for any other island, country, or nation except itself. How quickly Americans forget such episodes of their own history."
