      The ultimate and real purpose of the new US bases within Philippine bases remains unclear. The primer explaining the EDCA distributed at the time of the signing of the agreement goes to great lengths to stress that the facilities are to enhance the ability of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) to defend the county from external threats.   The pact allows U.S. forces and contractors to operate at agreed locations in the Philippines. It stipulates that the U.S. can’t set up permanent bases — .

      The only active U.S. military operation in the Philippines has been a U.S. special-operations task force supporting Filipino forces in their ongoing campaign against Abu Sayyaf and other Muslim.   The U.S. retained its "unhampered military operations" on the bases, qualified by the requirement that Manila be informed of the level of U.S. forces permanently stationed in the Philippines .

        A U.S. Ally Is Turning to China to ‘Build, Build, Build’ Chinese military assistance to the Philippines at Clark Air Base in June time to be working on the U.S.-Philippines.   Why the New US-Philippines Military Pact’s First Project Launch Matters The launch of the first EDCA project this week deserves attention amid a challenging context for the U.S.-Philippine Author: Prashanth Parameswaran.
