Fall of the Philippines and Japanese Blitzkrieg

Why did the Japanese invade the Philippines in the first place?

Why after so much warning, especially after the attack on Pearl Harbor, were the American forces so unprepared to meet a Japanese attack?

Why were the aircraft not dispersed? Why was there so little American air defense?

I'll definitely check out this video today. While I know the basics and overall big picture of the campaign I am not familiar with many of the specifics as mentioned in your post.

Some questions can only be answered by MacArthur....
