As noble as the policy sounds, the total opposite can also be said for the reason behind it. In truth, America valued the Philippines mainly because of economic and strategic reasons. Located in such a vital area and blessed with many natural resources and natural harbors, the Philippines was a tempting target for any country seeking to expand its power and influence in Asia.
