I watched this video on Sunday, while I was busy putting off homework about the Spanish American War. The parallels between the two situations are striking.

In both cases we have the United States helping people gain their "independence" and then moving in to take over the country. In the Philippines, this resulted in a bloody massacre of Filipino citizens during their fight for independence from the United States shortly after they were "liberated" from Spain. Like the Libyan people spoken of in this news clip, they, too, were probably suspicious of any American "help" offered.
