I think that if they had stayed as part of America, they would have been conquered by another country (possibly during the World Wars or the Cold War conflicts in Asia). Spain proved that keeping the Philippines from far away would be difficult, and they were not the weakest military in the world. That's just my viewpoint though.

@lucy... the Philippines WAS conquered during WW2 by the Japanese. Then the Americans came and kicked out the Japanese and granted the Philippines independence. Who the heck do you think would have taken them over during the Cold War?

It's hard to say of course how things would be different. I just think their economy would be better with greater trade with and investment from the US coming in, and probably they would suffer from less corruption, if they were still a US territory. There are already millions of Filipinos living in the States and they've done nothing but enrich the country with their presence: friendly, hard-working, family-oriented people eager to assimilate. So I don't know what he was implying with his comment earlier.

A really sad chapter in American history. Lots and lots of Filipinos died fighting for independence after the Philippines was granted to the US by Spain (along with Guam and Puerto Rico). The war went on until the Japanese came in and took over the islands. At that time General MacArthur famously promised upon leaving Leyte that he would return. He did, along with the full force of the US military, and liberated the Philippines after years of brutal oppression under the Japanese. At this point, the United States decided finally to grant the Philippines its independence, about 50 years after it had been declared. I would have missed this war, too, except that the hints gave it away since it started right after the Spanish-American War concluded.

Wrong war there Awesomeness. The Alamo was a decade earlier, when Texas was fighting against Mexico and Santa Ana without the US. The Mexican-American War was the conflict that made the careers of Zachary Taylor and Winfield Scott. Young men like Lee and Grant, Stonewall Jackson and George McClellan learned their trade at places like Chapultepec and the US Marine Corps added the phrase "The Halls of Montezuma" to their lexicon. Then we "bought" the American Southwest from Mexico including California, Nevada, Utah, etc.

@Erik: the USA has only lost one war in its history. The only way the British would fare better with percentages is if the sheer volume of wars they've engaged in diluted the number of losses. As you yourself pointed out most of these wars the British have engaged in barely count as skirmishes.
+1

Nov 23, 2014
I'm not going to go through the whole list, but, just sampling 1700-1800 it doesn't look good for the Brits. Their record appears to be 15 wins 6 losses and 3 stalemates. That's only a 62.5% win percentage. The Americans have a 91.7% win percentage just going by these 12 wars on the quiz.

@Kalbahamut, genuine question, which war do you consider the only one the US lost? Are you basing it on a military point of view or in terms of achieving your objectives? I guess what I mean is quite a few people would consider Vietnam to be a "loss" albeit the US. definitely wasn't beat militarily. More it was dragged into an attritional war and its will to fight was sapped. Given Vietnam ended up a communist country, is it then considered a defeat? If so, are Afghanistan and Iraq 'victories'? Granted the US certainly won militarily, but I think most people would look at those wars and say the end result was, being diplomatic, a bit of a mess. Again, not trolling or looking to start an argument, just genuinely intrigued on what war you consider the 'loss' and, I guess, on how you view the three wars I mentioned.
+2
level 76
Sep 26, 2016
The goal in Vietnam was to defeat the Communists in the North and unite the country under the government of Saigon. The US never even came close to achieving that goal. They were forced to abandon their objectives completely and withdraw. It was a total defeat.
The goal in Afghanistan was to topple the Taleban government in Kabul. A peripheral goal was to capture or kill Osama bin Laden. Both of those goals were achieved. The war ended. The allied occupation of the country hasn't gone as well as the war. I consider the war over and the goals were achieved long ago.
The goal in Iraq was to topple Saddam Hussein and set up a democratic government instead. The country has gone to shit since then... but that has nothing to do with the war. All of the war-time objectives were met.
When else in history has a war been declared a failure if, afterwards, there were some other problems caused by it? That seems odd.
+1
level 67
Sep 27, 2016
Cheers for the reply, as I said, I wasn't trolling. I was just interested in what war you considered a deafeat. I guess the key criteria is what exactly you define as the objectives of the war, and where you draw the line. I take your point on Iraq and Afghanistan.

There's good news for you, Kalbahamut: hegemonic discourse will always receive a ready audience. Don't worry about how endless cheering for the winning side will sound in posterity - you won't personally have to deal with that, right? In the meantime, I'll just have to just have to be satisfied with the slim rewards of a more critical historiography and look forward to your justification of use of napalm, the Chilean coup, or perhaps the brave thwarting of an international airport in Grenada as key moments in the progressive march of Pax Americana. Maybe I'll reread Voltaire's Candide while waiting.

The soviets carried WW2 pretty heavily. If you go look at total casualties you can see the US, UK and France combines had about 1.500.000 casualties while Soviet had over 25 million. Also, while US/England/France were effective at freeing the occupied territories, Soviet was the one putting in all the final blows to Nazi Germany; for example being the ones to take over Berlin.

You're probably right but it's hard to figure out how to count these as the many different battles skirmishes, campaigns, raids and so on are usually not counted as a single war but rather hundreds of different unrelated conflicts. Over 21,000 Americans (including indigenous people) were killed in the Indian Wars west of the Mississippi from 1850-1890. Some estimates put the total number of dead for all similar conflicts over 75,000. If you count the smallpox epidemics that were in part a result of germ warfare then casualty figures jump much much higher.

But this is talking about US wars and from the American perspective the War of 1812 was more contained than the Napoleonic Wars. The United States was not fighting against or with Napoleon.

I don't think anyone really sees it that way, though. The Philippines declared their independence from Spain. The Americans didn't recognize it and were granted the Philippines by Spain by treaty at the end of the Spanish-American War. At that point, the independent state of the Philippines was fighting against the American occupiers who came after the Spanish had left. and then if you agree that the war ended on the date given, after that point the Americans had officially won and made the Philippines a U.S. territory... though resistance continued, mostly by Muslim groups in the South, all the way through the Japanese occupation in the 40s.

It is now believed - the death toll revised by the professor I was lucky enough to study under, J. David Hacker - that almost 750,000 Americans died in the Civil War, and it has become the new accepted statistic. 2 Unrelated Points: The Revolutionary War and the War of 1812 are NOT really linked. There was over 20-years in between, and part of that time - during Washington's 2nd Term and during the Adams Administration - the US nearly went to war with France. The War of 1812 was based on a dumb decision by James Madison. And World War I and World War II are not the same war, as while there WAS fighting in many places around the world during WWI, the fighting was mostly limited to Europe. WWII had an entire Pacific Theater that WWI did not have. Hitler and the Nazis came to power playing off the anger over losing WWI, but Japan did not invade China or attack us in Pearl Harbor and the Philippines because of WWI. Germany's actions can be looked at through a WWI lens, but Japan's can't.

Mar 16, 2016
Correction on my previous post: there were nearly 30-years between the end of the Revolutionary War in 1783 and the start of the War of 1812. Americans in 1812 felt residual anger towards the British that was intensified by Britain's contempt for Americans, but the British were still battling Napoleon and didn't care about events in North America, and there was no real reason to fight them. In fact, Madison's war was so unpopular in New England that the states there considered secession. The fight was between Americans and Canadians in the North, and against Native American tribes allied with Britain and Spain in the south and west. Americans naively expected the Canadians to join the American union, and were shocked when they faced resistance...the American troops captured and burned the Canadian capital of York (today Toronto), and the Red Coats later burned DC; the war wound up a stalemate and its main importance historically is that it launched the career of Andrew Jackson.

@tswalla You're username suggests you're Muslim which would explain your slanted view. I'm not denying the US government may have been involved in some unethical things but Muslims love to blame their problems on others instead of taking responsibility constantly playing the victim card. This despite the fact that long before the US and Israel existed tribal hostilities existed in Arab and Muslim culture and today is no exception. The Muslim invasion of India where you sold off their women and enslaved those who didn't convert, the Arab slave trade in Africa spanning at least 800 years where you castrated the men and used the women as sex slaves, the Barbary pirates, the Taliban who turned on the US who formed from the US aided Mujahideen in their fight against communism, all the dictatorships in Muslim countries, and many more. I could go on but you get the idea, you don't exactly have a great track record or reputation and you're a hypocrite for talking about wars and violence.

I wouldn't put Iraq or Afghanistan on this list.

I know this isn't the popular conception. But the popular conception frankly makes no sense and is unprecedented in history.
The Iraq War lasted from March 2003 to April 2003. That's how long it took for the Americans to conquer Baghdad and the government of Saddam Hussein to fall. The Iraqi military was disbanded shortly thereafter. After this point, the war was finished and the occupation of Iraq began. Total casualties during the war were about 200.
The war in Afghanistan lasted from October through December 2001, when the Taleban lost control of Kandahar their final stronghold. During this period, there were 7 US casualties. After December the war was over and the occupation of Afghanistan began.

Good idea, but the War on Terror hasn't ended. And probably won't end in any ideal situation.

It doesn't say that the war has to have ended, also the war in afghanistan fits the death requirement of 1800, with 2,271 dead.

America's costliest war, in terms of human lives, was against itself. But I'm sure someone has already mentioned this fact.

Strange fact: Invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan with the ancillary objective of capturing Osama Bin Laden, but finally getting him in Pakistan without so much as a skirmish. Who says that the CIA doesn't eventually get its man! - Perseverance, perseverance, perseverance!!!

Would have gotten the Philippine-American war, but wrote "Filipino-American" instead.
