    There is no "occupation" under international law. What sarah stated is reality as it is on the ground. However, the concept of occupation under international law is based on the Hague Convention of 1907 and that definition has never been changed, not by the Geneva conventions which deal with the treatment of populations under occupation and not with a definition of what occupation is, and not by the UN which does not make international law. The UN only passes resolutions and if it can tries to inforce them, but international law ? That is created by agreements and treaties signed between sovereign nations. And if you look at the U.S., no treaty, no international law binding on the U.S. can be accepted without the agreement of the senate. And I haven't seen the senate ratify anything passed by the U.N.
