Spain colonized the Philippines with the cross (Roman Catholicism) and the sword (oppression). The Spanish colonization of the Philippines was made easy by its archipelagic physical characteristic and by the fact that there was no central government. Autonomous tribes governed by chieftains were sep…arated from one another by mountains or bodies of water. It was easy for Spain, therefore, to pit one tribe against the other. Another factor is that most of these tribes practiced Animism and Polytheism (belief in many gods). For them, Jesus was just one more novel god to add to their list of gods. (MORE)

What was the structure of the Spanish colonial government during their colonization of the Philippines?
The Spanish Colonial government structure was hierarchical. At the head was the reigning monarch, below him two branches: The Audiencias and the Viceroyalties who handled administrative matters. Due to conflicts, the Audiencies were eventually made subject to Vice-royal authority. A third arm, the C…orregimeiientos were also subjects of the Viceroyals. Below the Corr. were more local regional matters run by Cabilos considered "ecomenderos" whose local power and financial standing earned them their place in the hierarchy. In 1542 laws were put in place to remove some of the privileges of the ecomenderos. Below them, at the local level were the Corregidores who handled matters pertaining to the native population. So, if you wanted something done at a certain level you'd have to work your way up that complicated chain. in a way similar to going through a town council, mayor, senator, etc (MORE)

It is a misconception that Philippines was colonized by theSpaniards because of the spices found in the country. During thePeriod of Exploration and discovery, the Philippines did notactually cultivate the spices desired by the Spaniards such ascloves, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Spain was one of those countries who werethirsty for power and prestige.Additionally, since the Spain was aCatholic country, it was obliged by the pope to convert the nativesfrom places they colonized into Christianity.

It is summed with three words: God, Gold, and Glory. God: Spanish colonizers actually went to the Philippines to fulfillthe deathwish of Isabel I, who said that "she would donate all herwealth for the conversion of the Indies". This was fulfilled byKing Philip II. During the early 1600's, Spain con…sideredabandoning the Philippines, but was prolong because a Spanishfriar(Fray Fernando Moraga) - so instead of abandoning it, Spainsent notices to all provinces of Spain and Mexico for stevedoresand workmen to enlist as priest and undergo training. After theyfinished training, they were all sent to the Philippines underdifferent orders to serve as religious priests. So now, 85% of thePhilippine population is Roman Catholic (......and 35% are partlyof Spanish descent). Gold: It was the dream of then king of Spain, King Charles I(Emperor Charles V), to obtain the Philippines in order to increasehis personal fortunes and treasury. In fact, after ordering thesoldiers to ransack several Latin American territories for gold,they were sent to the Philippines to discover such too, althoughefforts were futile - gold was never found by the Spanish in thePhilippines because of the hostile mountain tribes. Gold was laterdiscovered by Americans during their occupation of the Philippines.Actually, the Philippines was thought of a colony to be abandoned(as mentioned above) because it was "a drain to Spain's treasury". Glory: Ultimately, it was not just Isabel's wish which helped thePhilippines to be retained by Spain. It was the glory - they wouldnot abandon the Philippines to either British or Portuguese becausethis would bring shame to Spain. Instead, King Philip II boastedthat the sun never sets on his realm (because of the Philippines).When Spain acquired the Philippines, it astonished Europeannations, such as Sicily and Netherlands, who then surrenderedwithout a fight because of what they thought was the superiorforces of Spain. Eventually though, the Spanish were ousted out ofthe islands by Americans on 1898. This caused the Spanish civil wareventually because of shame for its loss of colonies and paved theway for the eventual downfall of Spanish economy during the 1900's. (MORE)

Japan had long been the major force in the pacific region, had fought wars with russia and china over it and by the 1920s occupied large parts of china and manchuria. By now the usa was an emerging industrial giant and with the opening of the Panama had grown very fast with rapid transit from east t…o west coasts.The usa began to flex its small but growing military muscle and began to build naval bases in Honolulu and the philipines. It was obvious that both Japan and the US had designs on control of the pacific. Japan was very worried at the speed of US naval growth. When this industrial colossus turned its resources to building weapons of war it was staggering. Japan could wait no longer,every day the US military was growing. Japan occupied the Philipines and forced the US [ GEN. D. McArthur ] to withdraw with the intent to reduce US expansion in the Pacific. Japanese envoys were in the US trying to work out a plan to find some common ground to settle the pacific matter when Japan struck again, without warning or prior declaration of war. This time with devastating results. The US Pacific Fleet was destroyed in Pearl Harbour. (MORE)
