    that were sought after but also their locations offered strategic points for harbors that the country can port their ships for resupply or stock up supplies for wartime. In Senator 's Alfred Beveridge speech at Congress, the Philippines would grant us a base of operations where we can easily trade with China. These places offered income and a convenient place that would secure future operations. In return for this great deal we suffered at the expense of the trust of the Filipino people and the humiliating rebuttals against annexation. The cons came in the form of insurrection in the Philippines and dissension in the US.
