Abstract:

I address the issue of alliances cooperation: the specific puzzle is what determines the level of alliance cooperation. I argue that allies honor their alliance when their alliance relationship is institutionalized to generate military interdependence. In contrast with realist theories, I suggest that the alliance institutionalization, not offense-defense balance or threat, determines alliance cooperation.
To test my argument, I will control the level of threat by generating a selection bias intentionally in a following way. The value of the dependent variable, the level of alliance cooperation, is observed in times of non-peaceful and dangerous contingencies whose level of threat is high. In addition to control the level of threat, the relationship between the level of threat and the level of alliance institutionalization is also explored in order to measure the true effect of it.

Instead I expect them to pursue independent nuclear and ballistic missile program for extra security as South Korea did in the 1970s when the United States actually disengage itself from this region. And in Europe the American withdrawal from the Atlantic Alliance would not end with peaceful isolationism but with dangerous nuclear proliferation in the Continent. Since the United States is the imperial power on this planet Washington should maintain its current position and try to make its junior
