Examples of overthrowing in a Sentence

  1. Zimbabwe Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe:

    The enemy has his eye on overthrowing ZANU-PF.

  2. Tom Cole:

  3. Army Lt. Col. Michael Waltz:

    Taliban is not a monolithic entity -- there are elements focused on Afghanistan, and there are very much elements focused on destabilizing or even overthrowing the regime in Pakistan … in the seams, there you have Al Qaeda and increasingly ISIS.

  4. Max Boot:

    We did a great job of overthrowing Gaddafi, but they had nothing to secure the country afterward, and there was, I might add, a similar lack of planning for our pullout in the case of Iraq, where there was very little sense of what would happen after U.S. troops left in 2010. We cant think about these as being kind of quick in and out engagements. We send some troops, kill some people and then come back home to a victory parade. Sadly, it doesnt work that way.

  5. Ryan Mauro:

    Supporting them against Iran is akin to supporting Hamas against Al Qaeda, as someone who has been supportive of overthrowing Assad for years before the civil war, it pains me to say that overthrowing him today would only lead to much more bloodshed. The best scenario is the division of the country between the Assad regime, the Syrian Democratic Forces and Arab forces that are as close to secular-democratic as possible. And from there, we can hope that a safe alternative to Assad’s rule can eventually rise and support liberal elements to make it happen.
