    Why didn't Clinton do this? It was long overdue.

    Clinton did make regime change U.S. policy...I just don't think he ever had high enough popularity ratings to ever really pull it off. I don't think congress would ever have supported him on Iraq like they supported Bush (and only Bush because of the temporary wake up call that 911 gave them).

    It's funny how the popular catch-phrase "regime change" has become the common way of saying "invade, conquer, and change things around to suit our own desires".

    //And implied unilateralism with the suggestion of popular appeal.

    'wake up call' for regime change? The US gov had been doing before 9/11.
