The U.S. is scheduled to withdraw from the Philippines by 31 December 1992. Although military planners have long considered the loss of the Philippines as a plausible contingency, most planning assumed sufficient time would be available for orderly withdrawal and subsequent build up of alternate locations. This paper looks at the immediate problems facing the warfighting commander on 1 January 1993 and, where possible, provides recommendations to reduce his risk in supporting contingencies in the Western Pacific and Persian Gulf regions.
