Occupy, Occupation

Christopher Dickey, Middle East editor at the Daily Beast, talks about occupation, occupiers, and being occupied:

“Military occupation is like an addiction–once it starts, it’s very hard to stop. [The attitude of military occupiers is] ‘Aren’t you glad we liberated you?’ But no one is going to thank occupiers.”

“Sometimes the tables can be turned and those with guns and money find themselves up against people who are determined to take back their space, peacefully but relentlessly.”
