  Regime - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Political scientist Fred Judson, defines a regime as the "relationship between the state, society, (the) market, and global insertion".
In science, a regime can mean a particular state of affairs where a particular physical phenomenon or boundary condition is significant, such as "the superfluid regime" or "the steady state regime".

 Regime change - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Regime change is the overthrow of a government (or regime) considered illegitimate by an external force (usually military), and its replacement with a new government according to the ideas and/or interests promoted by that force.
Regime change in Iraq became a stated goal of United States foreign policy when Public Law 105-338 (the "Iraq Liberation Act") was signed into law by US President Bill Clinton.
The term 'regime change' can also be used in a more general sense, particularly in academic work, to refer to a change in political institutions or laws that affect the nature of the system as a whole.

 Geoffrey Nunberg - on "regime change"   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
That was the mother of all regime changes, and it gave us the phrase "ancien régime," or "old regime," as a name for the form of government that was about to come to a decisive end.
But when we call a government a regime, there's usually a sense that its hold on power is insecure or unsteady, as if you could hear the tumbrils rolling in the distance.
That's the sense that regime has when it's paired with the name of a ruler or a political party, like "the Castro regime" or "the Sandinista regime." Or people sometimes talk about "the Havana regime" or "the Beijing regime," with the implication that the rulers just happen to be squatting in the seat of government.

 Rage, Hubris, and Regime Change by Ken Jowitt - Policy Review, No. 118   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
According to the administration, the essential element of our era is the threat emanating from a combination of tyrannical states and what I have called “movements of rage,” a malignant political coalition that relentlessly pursues and may succeed in possessing and using weapons of mass destruction (wmd) against the United States and its allies.
Second, a hostile regime with wmd would be more willing to harbor and sponsor stateless “movements of rage” and add to the latter’s global reach insidious types of violent and traumatizing weapons.
In this irony of ironies, the Bush administration’s identification of regime change as critical to its anti-terrorist policy and integral to its desire for a democratic capitalist world has led to an active “Leninist” foreign policy in place of Fukuyama’s passive “Marxist” social teleology.

 Regime Libertarians by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.
This is the view that the one and only job of government is to withdraw, wholly and completely, not just from one sector but all of them, and not at some point in the future but right now.
In neither case does this position hold that the regime is capable of doing good for anyone or anything.
And here is the tragic result of Regime Libertarianism: insofar as it permits itself to be used in a state propaganda effort, it unwittingly becomes an adjunct of state power itself.

 Regime Change: Is This a New Policy? - by Carl K. Savich
Regime change seeks to impose a regime/government/ruler from outside of the country so attacked, substituting the will of the US government for that of the people of the attacked state.
The regime change in Iraq in 2003 is part of this long-standing policy of overthrowing regimes that are hostile to US interests.
What is perhaps new and novel about the Iraqi regime change is that it is no longer covert or shrouded in propaganda and justified or rationalized by invoking the UN or humanitarianism, i.e., "humanitarian intervention" to prevent a genocide.

 regime
In any case of dissolution of a regime, the court may, upon the application of either spouse or of the latter's successors, decide that, in the mutual relations of the spouses, the effects of the dissolution are retroactive to the date when they ceased to live together.
No spouse who has interfered in the management of the acquests of the other spouse after the regime is dissolved may receive the share of the acquests of the other spouse to which he or she is entitled unless the other spouse has accepted the partition of the acquests of the spouse who interfered.
The enrichment is valued as on the day the regime is dissolved; however, when the property acquired or improved was alienated during the regime, the enrichment is valued as on the day of the alienation.

 The Nuclear Case of Iran and the Survival of the Islamic Regime
The regime has proved that it has not the capacity to get reformed from the inside and the reformisms that support the Valyate Faghih are wasting the time and energy.
It is about the security of a regime that is convinced it is going to get into serious conflict with the West, as the symbol of a certain way of life and thinking that stands in contrast to the ideology of the regime of Iran.
Yet the West is treating the regime of the North Korea with much respect and caution, while the miserable Saddam who did not have those weapons is sitting in prison and crying for the death of his terrible sons.

 Will the Syrian Regime Take on the World?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
At the beginning of the American invasion of Iraq, and thanks to the bellicose posture the Syrian regime adopted during the early stages of the conflict, a similar showdown with the US was averted only at the last minute.
The policies adopted by the Syrian regime in the last few months raise an important existential question about the decision-making process in Syria, and more specifically the way the process is managed and who are the people involved in it.
The reformist elements within the Syrian regime, Assad included, should realize that the challenge ahead is not about regime survival, but about the survival and viability of Syria as a state (and ours is not the only Middle Eastern country facing such a challenge).

 Charles E. Miller on Regime Change on National Review Online
As it turns out, "regime change" is a very tough set of military tasks — especially given the Coalition's concern for minimizing collateral damage and civilian deaths.
For a regime credited with being a sophisticated manipulator of global public opinion, this attempt at spin is pathetic.
The broad military effort in support of regime change is to cause surrender by political and military leaders.

 World Can't Wait | Drive Out the Bush Regime
But its exactly because this regime is so willing to lie, to spy, to let die, to ignore and change rules, and driving relentlessly forward even in the face of widespread opposition that it is going to take a tremendous and unprecedented fight to force them out.
The opposition to Bush's regime must become so widespread, massive and intense that he has no choice but to leave office - as both Johnson and then Nixon had to when they were faced with uncompromising political opposition.
In the first place, the regime is doing tremendous damage now and in the second it would be criminal to allow Bush 3 more years to actually make the outrages that he has committed "new social norms".

 Al Martin Raw: Political, Economic & Financial Intelligence
Yet it is this very same Bush-Cheney Regime, which now wants to hide behind the skirts of the IEA, as it were, in order to prevent having to be the power, as a member of the Security Council, which refers Iran to the United Nations for potential sanctions regarding the Iranian nuclear program.
Yet, in fact, the regime is quite concerned because, without the ability to finance Bushonian triple deficits (current account, budgetary and trade deficits) ultimately this has an effect on the regime’s political policies.
The intent of the Regime’s policies is to deny citizens the ability to hold assets discreetly -- or to even move assets outside of the United States and hold them with any sovereign immunity.

 Bush planned Iraq 'regime change' before becoming President - [Sunday Herald]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
A SECRET blueprint for US global domination reveals that President Bush and his cabinet were planning a premeditated attack on Iraq to secure 'regime change' even before he took power in January 2001.
The blueprint, uncovered by the Sunday Herald, for the creation of a 'global Pax Americana' was drawn up for Dick Cheney (now vice- president), Donald Rumsfeld (defence secretary), Paul Wolfowitz (Rumsfeld's deputy), George W Bush's younger brother Jeb and Lewis Libby (Cheney's chief of staff).
Tam Dalyell, the Labour MP, father of the House of Commons and one of the leading rebel voices against war with Iraq, said: 'This is garbage from right-wing think-tanks stuffed with chicken-hawks -- men who have never seen the horror of war but are in love with the idea of war.
