This article focuses on how a look at U.S. history may provide clues to China's future actions. There are numerous parallels between the United States' international position in 1898 and China's in 2005 and an examination of U.S. actions during and soon after the Spanish-American War could help to predict the course that China's government will choose. In 1898 the United States had both regional and imperial ambitions: to clear the Caribbean of any last vestiges of European colonialism and to extend U.S. influence across the Pacific, beyond Hawaii to the Philippines and even to China.
