"Policy of neo-colonialism": why the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico did not become the state of the USA and did not find independence
On October 18, 1898 over the island of Puerto Rico the American colors which marked introduction of military authorities of the USA were hoisted. The former colony of Spain passed under control of Washington. In spite of the fact that since then passed 120 years, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico did not become either the American state, or the independent country, keeping the intermediate status of the so-called associated state. Experts connect it with the fact that official Washington does not want to lose complete control over the island because of its geostrategic situation, but at the same time does not wish to take the responsibility for its future.
