    Is any nation ever justified of such? In the 1890s and early 1900s the US could pass off it’s empire by claiming it as the results of war. Cuba, the Philippines, Guam, Puerto Rico all came under US control under the Treaty of Paris of 1898 which ended the Spanish-American War. Cuba gained independence from the US in 1902 with a constitution that granted the US the right to intervene in Cuban affairs. The Philippines ended up fighting the Philippine-American War, which can be seen as a Spanish-American War, to throw off their new colonial rulers which they lost and became an unincorporated territory of the US as a result. It was not until 1946 that the US recgonized the Philippines as an independent nation. Guam and Puerto Rico are still US territories. And we can bring up other locations that support the fact that a US ran an empire. How About Hawaii. It was foriegn buisness leaders, both from the US and Europe, that led to the overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii and the eventual annexation of Hawaii by the US.

    We do NOT have an empire. If we were imperialistic, then we would have stayed in all of the places that we invaded, conquered, or freed, yet the only places where are troops are stationed are places in which the country has asked for us to stay.Do we control Japan? Do we control South Korea? Do we control German? No, we don’t.whale

    That is like asking the question, “How often do you beat your wife?” First, you need to be specific when you say “imperialistic policies?” Where is the empire? Perhaps you mean something else when you use the term “imperialistic.” Usually, if you are imperialistic you have an empire, such as the UK when they controlled India and some of China. That was their empire. So, in the 1800′s and 1900′s where is the empire of the US beyond our border. That is the first place to begin. You need to define in very careful terms what you mean by imperialism. Perhaps you just mean intervention in the affairs of other nations, that is not imperialism.
