My question here is pretty straightforward--when and where exactly did the U.S. conduct or help conduct regime change?

As of right now, I can think of:

-Hawaii (in 1893)
-Nicaragua (in 1909)
-Germany (in 1945)
-Japan (in 1945)
-Iran (in 1953)
-Guatemala (in 1954)
-Chile (in 1973)
-Grenada (in 1983)
-Panama (in 1989)
-Afghanistan (in 2001)
-Iraq (in 2003)
-Libya (in 2011)

That said, though, exactly which cases of U.S.-conducted regime change am I forgetting to list here?

Any thoughts on this?

Also, for the record, I myself don't always consider regime change to be a bad thing to do.

Just now when i read the title "When and where exactly did the US conduct regime change?" I interpreted it as talking about when the US changed its "conduct regime" and I wondered what a "conduct regime" was - some type of bureaucratic term, I guess.

English can be wonderfully ambiguous sometimes.

I was talking about the U.S. conducting "regime change" here. Sorry if my thread title here was unclear.

Several nations in western hemisphere have see, U.S. troops but for example U.S. vs Mexico War led to regime change but not as a direct U.S. orders or control but still due to U.S. intervention.

Philipines is the largest not on above list.

The U.S. overthrew another colonial power (Spain) in the Philippines, though; however, the U.S. did not overthrow a native Filipino government. In turn, this is why I didn't include the Philippines on this list of mine.

Republic of the Philippines accepted surrender of some Spanish forces and fought U.S. occupation for 3 years... it wasn't just a trade between Spain and U.S. colonial powers.
