The Filipino-American War resulted from the betrayed hope of the Filipino people for independence following the Treaty of Paris. After a brutal war to put down rebellion, with overt racist tones, America established a colonial government in the Philippines. America's involvement in the Philippines reflected its interest in China, but European nations and Japan claimed spheres of influence in China, limiting America's ability to develop trade through the "Open Door." Involvement in China brought the United States into conflict with Japan and Russia, and Japan's emergence as a great power resulted in growing discord between the two countries.
