    The Philippines used to have the largest U.S. Navy and Air Force bases and at least two military support bases outside the U.S. mainland. But due to changing political climate in the 1980s the U.S. was pressured to leave.  The eruption of Mt. Pinatubo, which buried the two large bases in volcanic ash, hastened the U.S. departure.  The US was never involved in the local government.

    No, the Philippines is an independent nation, it does have US influence, but the USA does not control the Philippines.

    No.  When the USA acquired the Philippines from Spain in 1898 independence for the Phils was scheduled for 1946.  Independence happened on schedule, and despite WW2.

    Note that many people in the Philippines wish it had stayed a US Territory like Puerto Rico or the US Virgin Islands.  Had that happened Filipinos today would be US citizens and the Philippines might even be a state (or probably more than one state). Had that occurred the Philippines would also have never suffered the decades-long dictatorship of corrupt Ferdinand Marcos and the Phils would be much better off overall.

    Of course not, the United States recognized the Philippines as an independent state and established diplomatic relations with it in 1946.
