End of Military Government[edit]

The section "End of Military Government" uses examples from before World War II. This means that the text is outdated as the rules/laws for occupation have been greatly affected by post World War II treaties (Geneva IV etc) and the formation of the United Nations and its institutions. --Philip Baird Shearer (talk) 11:19, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

I find that there are no contradictions in the analysis given in this section and the specifications of Geneva IV. One important point of note is in reference to Article 6 of Convention (IV) relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War. Geneva, (Aug. 12 1949), which contains the following wording: "In the case of occupied territory, the application of the present Convention shall cease one year after the general close of military operations; however, the Occupying Power shall be bound, for the duration of the occupation, to the extent that such Power exercises the functions of government in such territory, by the provisions of the following Articles of the present Convention: 1 to 12, 27, 29 to 34, 47, 49, 51, 52, 53, 59, 61 to 77, 143." HOWEVER, to my knowledge, the "rule" that military occupation ends one year after the general close of military operations has never been applied to TERRITORIAL CESSIONS.
