Abstract: 
The Philippines and the United States maintain close ties that are grounded in a Mutual
Defense Treaty signed in 1951. Security cooperation has been a hallmark despite evolving
dynamics in the bilateral relationship, including a US colonial legacy that continues
to cast a long shadow for many Filipinos. While contentious politics and domestic
limitations present a potential constraint on the upward trajectory of the alliance relationship,
there are indications that this expanded engagement can continue beyond
the Aquino administration. The paper examines the condition of Philippine forces
under President Aquino, the International Peace and Security Plan to pursue a credible
external defense capability, the process of security sector reform, and matters pursuing
a strong Philippine-US alliance.
