Abstract:

United States military facilities in the Philippines are at the mercy of the changing military and foreign policy relationship between a superpower and a country which was once its colonial possession. While the relationship has been classified as being special to both countries, the significance of a developing power vacuum in the Southeast Asia area has caused concern among the ASEAN nations, the United States military and sheds a light on possible expansion of the Philippine military into external defense.
