The comparison betweeen post-war Germany and post-war Iraq should be considered fallacious as long as those who make it refuse to answer a simple question which can prove the case one way or the other: how many American troops died in post-war guerrilla action in Germany?
To be sure, some Germans, Wolverines, etc. took potshots.....but I have seen no evidence to indicate it was on a scale even close to the current bloodletting of Americans in Iraq.
I have called the Center for Military History (the main federal military history agency) and they too think it is fallacious.
