The word “occupy” has received plenty of use over the last few years, and viewers of the president’s state of the union address had different reactions to Obama’s characterization of the war on terror as an American “occupation” of foreign countries.
Others had different words for what the United States has been doing in Afghanistan and elsewhere.
Does the US occupy Afghanistan, or are we trying to save it? Calling it an occupation is insulting to our military.—

I can't believe POTUS actually said we "occupy other nations". During the SOTU. Remarkable, absolutely remarkable.—

Critics of the administration’s drone program weren’t about to let the president off the hook either.
we don't need to occupy other nations, just send flying killbots to bomb their weddings—
