The USA appears to have a particular dislike of Muslims.

"Some estimates for total civilian dead reach up to a million."

It is arguable that the Philippine war was also a war against catholicism.

Why did the USA want to rule people who did not want to be ruled by the USA? The USA turned many Phillipinos into English-speaking protestant clones of evangelical Americans.

The Philippine–American War,[11] also referred to as the Filipino–American War, the Philippine War, and previously referred to as the Philippine Insurrection or the Tagalog Insurgency,[12][13][14][15] (Filipino: Digmaang Pilipino–Amerikano; Spanish: Guerra filipino–estadounidense) was an armed conflict between the First Philippine Republic and the United States that lasted from February 4, 1899 to July 2, 1902.[1] While Filipino nationalists viewed the conflict as a continuation of the struggle for independence that began in 1896 with the Philippine Revolution, the U.S. government regarded it as an insurrection.[16] 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.[17]

Fighting erupted between forces of the United States and those of the Philippine Republic on February 4, 1899, in what became known as the 1899 Battle of Manila. On June 2, 1899, the First Philippine Republic officially declared war against the United States.[18][19] The war officially ended on July 2, 1902, with a victory for the United States. However, some Philippine groups—led by veterans of the Katipunan, a Philippine revolutionary society—continued to battle the American forces for several more years. Among those leaders was General Macario Sakay, a veteran Katipunan member who assumed the presidency of the proclaimed Tagalog Republic, formed in 1902 after the capture of President Emilio Aguinaldo. Other groups, including the Moro, Bicol and Pulahan peoples, continued hostilities in remote areas and islands, until their final defeat at the Battle of Bud Bagsak on June 15, 1913.[20]

The war resulted in at least 200,000 Filipino civilian deaths, mostly due to famine and disease.[21][22][23][24][25][26][27][28] Some estimates for total civilian dead reach up to a million.[29][8] The war and especially the following occupation by the U.S., changed the culture of the islands, leading to the rise of Protestantism and disestablishment of the Catholic Church and the introduction of English to the islands as the primary language of government, education, business, industry and, in future decades, among upper-class families and educated individuals.[citation needed]
