ABSTRACT
The article presents information related to the regime change in Iraq in 2003. As reported, even the United Nations Security Council's Resolution 1441, which was adopted by 15-0 vote in November 2002, had differings as was revealed by a separate statement by members China, France, and Russia. It is also reported that the most obvious change in the U.S.' position between 1990 and 2002 is its openly declared willingness to act unilaterally. It is further reported that even after a successful military campaign, the prospects for successful completion of regime change are no better than in 1991 because Iraq's social devastation as a result of the sanctions has increased its fragmentation.
