Why did Americans support the Cuban revolution?
They did not support it at all, mostly because it was a Communist revolution. The USA however did support an attempt at counter-revolution through the infamous 'invasion of the Bay of Pigs'. The attempt however failed miserably. The USA only now is beginning to lift some of the embargo measures it took against Cuba in the 1960's.
Why did Americans support Cuban independence from Spain?
How did yellow journalism and jingoism inluence americans' wiewa of the Cuban rebillion?
Yellow journalism and jingoism influenced AmericansÕ views of the Cuban rebellion against the Spanish Empire by portraying the Spanish as a backward empire amongst other very negative things. Public opinion regarding American intervention grew to such a fervor as to compare to the Cuban rebellion to the American Revolution and forced Congress and President William McKinley to take action.
