Just as official governments are not eternal, military bases in Asia have a history. So, too, every foreign military base elsewhere are inextricably intertwined in histories of colonialism, national liberation struggles, international wars and Big Power politics. For example, U.S. military bases in the Philippines were a result of the Asian phase of the Spanish-American War (1898) in which the U.S. defeated the Philippine Revolution of 1896 in the Philippine American War (1899- 1902).
