  Invasion - Uncyclopedia
Invasion is the codename for the awesome parties that the military put on...
Invasion parties keep out the uninvited by fabricating large amounts of propaganda portraying places like Iraq and Afghanistan as dangerous hellholes, instead of the fun and exotic party venues that they really are.

 Invasion (TV series) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Invasion was an American science fiction television series that aired on ABC for one season beginning in September 2005.
Somewhat similar to Invasion of the Body Snatchers, the show told the story of the aftermath of a hurricane in which water-based extraterrestrials infiltrate a small Florida town and begin to take over the bodies of the town's inhabitants through a cloning process (first by merging with and then unknowingly replacing them).
Some fans of Invasion have attributed poor handling on the part of ABC as one reason for the show's continued problems, citing two hiatuses and a three-week break all within one season—periods in which no repeats were aired.

With a prescient premise (a possible alien invasion occurs during one hell of a hurricane) and a cast whose minimal star power makes for maximum believability, we are instantly sucked into the situation unfolding in Homestead, Florida.
Invasion is about trust, suspicion, and the dread inherent in both concepts.
But Invasion supposes that outside forces, metaphorical or literal, are responsible for the alteration (an opening attack on a military plane is one of the show's F/X highlights).

limited to the 2003 invasion and the engagement fought between various military forces (such as the old Iraqi army and the multinational forces) or also including the occupation up to the establishment of the sovereign Iraqi state — or the term may refer to the invasion and occupation as well as the continuing conflict.
Allegedly perceived goals of the invasion and occupation as stated by the United States in 2002 before the Iraq invasion are likewise controversial factors.
By no means did the occupation invasion force see the entire Iraqi military thrown against it, and it is assumed that most units disintegrated to either join the growing Iraqi anti-occupation fighters or return to their homes.
