feb 4, 1899 - The conflict with Philippine republic
The conflict arose when the First Philippine Republic objected to the terms of the Treaty of Paris under which the United States took possession of the Philippines from Spain, ending the Spanish–American War. Fighting erupted between forces of the United States and those of the Philippine Republic on February 4, 1899, in what became known as the Second Battle of Manila.
This is an example of HARD POWER where the United Sates put force (army) to take possession on of the Philippines from Spain. This is also an example of ISOLATIONISM because of the fact of empowering that the US is doing. Also an act of NATIONALISM
