Rollback is the strategy to win a war by destroying the enemy country or replacing it with a favorable regime.

The U.S. practiced rollback against the Confederacy (1865) and Germany and Japan in World War II.

The U.S. tried and failed rollback against North Korea in 1950 during the Korean War, and against Cuba in the Bay of Pigs in 1961.

It succeeded with Noriega in Panama (1989), Grenada (1983), the Taliban in Afghanistan (2001), Saddam Hussein in Iraq (2003)--and most important, against the Soviet Union in the 1980s.
