This Day in the History of Hard Fought, Successful Wars Against Muslims
UPDATE: Missed the date of the Manila Bay battle by a hundred years, but all corrected now, thanks to Eric's sharp eyes

Anyway, I wonder what our military and government leaders thought of the Moro pirates 105 years ago. Did the fact that they were Muslims factor into anyone's thinking at the time? I'm guessing not.
Incidentally, if you've never been to the Philippines, it's a beautiful place. Well, it is once you get outside the cities, at least. I managed to spend a few days there on business earlier this year. Quite an experience.
