    SDHD: "Territories have borders, you utter numbskull." SDHD does not understand the fundamental difference between: Withdrawal *FROM* occupied territory and Withdrawal *TO* a border. A hint for my dim friend: only the latter requires "a border", while the former certainly doesn't. Indeed, the very definition of "occupation" requires no "borders" of any kind, because it is measured entirely by the authority of the army of occupation. Article 42, Hague Regulations IV, 1907, if you want to look it up. "The occupation extends only to the territory where such authority has been established and can be exercised." You point of order is therefore pointless i.e. it is perfectly possible to unwind an occupation without the (ex)occupier having to withdraw *to* a border. All that is required is that you define the territorial extent of the occupation, and then you tell that occupier to get the f**k outta there.
