  Military occupation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Belligerent military occupation occurs when one nation's military garrisons occupy all or part of the territory of another nation or recognized belligerent during an invasion (during or after a war).
There have long been customary laws of belligerent occupation as part of the laws of war which gave some protection to the population under the military occupation of a belligerent power.
Some presences are often referred to as military occupations, but their status as an military occupation are often disputed when not every party in the situation agrees that it is even a military occupation at all.

 Occupation
Belligerent occupation in a foreign war, being based upon the possession of enemy territory, necessarily implies that the sovereignty of the occupied territory is not vested in the occupying power.

 U.S. Could Become Mired in Iraq Occupation
Though Washington hopes for a quick and decisive occupation of Iraq to provide it with a psychological victory and a base of operations for further military action in the region, it might find itself consumed instead with problems of occupation within a year of unseating Saddam Hussein.
However, reasonably unopposed occupations have occurred only under one or both of two conditions -- either the country was utterly devastated by war prior to occupation, or a strong and hostile neighboring power existed to render an occupying U.S. defender welcome.
The 1915-34 occupation of Haiti faced an early challenge in 1918, when the Marines had to put down a 40,000-person uprising at a cost of some 2,000 Haitian lives.

 Informed Comment
The intimate connection between foreign military occupation and terrorism can be seen in Palestine in the 1940s, where the Zionist movement threw up a number of terrorist organizations that engaged in bombings and assassinations on a fair scale.
The Soviet invasion and occupation of Afghanistan in the 1980s was among the biggest generators of radical Muslim terrorism in modern history.
It is why the US military occupation of Iraq is actually a negative for any "war on terror." Nor do I believe that democratization, even if it is possible, is going to end terrorism in and of itself.

 Foundations On Sand: An Analysis Of The First United States Occupation Of
Thesis:  The first United States Occupation of Haiti, after a slow start, made a great variety of capital improvements for Haiti, made changes in the Haitian political system, and refinanced the Haitian economy, none of which had much lasting impact on the Haiti people once the occupation was terminated.
  After a slow start, marred by a brutal revolt in 1918-20, the United States Occupation of Haiti was reorganized and began to address many of the perceived shortcomings of Haitian society.
Recommendation:   Before the United States intervenes in foreign countries, particularly in those where nation-building improvements are to be attempted, the political and social cultures of those countries must be taken into consideration.
