'''Invasion''' is a military action consisting of troops entering a foreign land (a nation or territory, or part of that), often resulting in the invading power belligerent occupation the area, whether briefly or for a long period.
Invasions may be conducted to change or restore the leadership of a nation of territory.
Other historical reasons for invasion have included restoration of territory lost in the past, expansion of territory, pursuit of enemies, protection of allies, pre-emption of an attack, protection or acquisition of transportation routes and water or oil supplies, quelling destabilizing or unconscionable conflict within or between neighbours, and punishment for a perceived slight.

 Harare military chief 'directing land invasions'
They say the invasions were ordered by President Robert Mugabe after he lost the referendum on a new constitution in February, and have been meticulously planned by the military.
Gen Shiri is one of 28 close allies of President Mugabe named on a list obtained by The Telegraph as having received farms, compulsorily purchased from white owners in the land redistribution programme, which were supposed to go to landless peasants.
Francis Maude, Mr Cook's Tory shadow, said: "This list is evidence of Mr Mugabe's bad faith and proof that he has abused his land-reform programme to enrich himself and a small circle of kleptocrats around him." He called for Mr Mugabe's assets to be seized and for Zimbabwe to be suspended from the Commonwealth.

 Wikinfo | Invasion
Invasion is a military action that directly threatens the autonomy of a nation or territory.
This sort of invasion may be perceived by one side as an act of usurpation, while the other may perceive it as an act of liberation.
Other reasons for invasion have included the restoration or expansion of territory, the pursuit of enemies or the protection of allies, to pre-empt an attack, to retain or gain access to transportation routes or water supplies, to quell destabilizing or unconscionable conflict within or between neighbours, and to punish a perceived sleight.

Director Andrei Tarkovsky visualizes brilliantly the story of a devout man seeking through his art to find the transcendent in the savagery of the Tartar invasions and the unfeeling brutality of Russian nobles.
The Leopard (1963) Historical drama set against the background of Garibaldi's 1860 invasion of Sicily where the prince (Burt Lancaster) of an old aristocratic family refuses to adapt to revolutionary times despite the marriage of his more egalitarian nephew (Alain Delon) to the daughter of a wealthy ex-peasant.

 The Invader of the Month: The Brown Anole, Anolis sagrei   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Despite declines, green anole populations often remain viable in the face of dense brown anole populations when understory vegetation is present, suggesting that suitable cover for hatchlings is important for long-term green anole survival.
That so many similar Caribbean island species have invaded the mainland seems contrary to the notion that mainland areas are resistant to invasion by island species, but is probably explained by increased invasibility of severely altered habitats in especially south Florida.
On a priority list of species to eradicate or control, the brown anole should lie far below the many biologically, economically, and culturally important pests and weeds.

 The Barbarian Invasions
Denys Arcand's THE BARBARIAN INVASIONS is a story about the humor, hope and unspoken bonds that hold family and friends together against the onslaughts of life in our contemporary times.
For a writer as acerbic as Arcand, The Barbarian Invasions is surprisingly sentimental.
What makes The Barbarian Invasions much more than a facile exercise in generational conflict is that Denys Arcand, who wrote and directed it, has a sense of history that is as acute as it is playful.

The Norwegian decision to resist the Nazi invasion was taken with the certain knowledge that Norway would fall.
The Norwegians did not know whether the German domination would be permanent and also felt that noble resistance would win them favour with the Allies and a position at the peace settlement in the event of an Allied victory.
If in 1940 it had been known with certainty the Germans would dominate central Europe for many decades, it is unlikely the Norwegians would have resisted.

  Indeed, shipping is the primary vector for aquatic invasions, because of the tremendous number of vessels involved; the abundance and diversity of species that are moved; and the fact that these stowaways are released directly into coastal waters.
But, shipping is clearly not the only pathway for marine invasions.

The northern snakehead's arrival in Maryland is only the latest in a long list of invasions by alien species around the world [see sidebar].
The northern snakehead invasion in Maryland highlights one of the most frustrating problems wildlife specialists face—the ignorance of the general public about the catastrophic consequences that can occur when non-native species are released into the wild.
According to the Maryland Department of Natural Resources police, the Crofton invasion was born sometime in 2000 when a man purchased two live snakeheads in New York City's Chinatown district intending to make soup for his sick sister; the soup was postponed, the fish put in a tank.
