Well, Mr. Wright, if you read the post, you saw this, "...an explosion in the Bremen police headquarters, also in June 1945, killed five Americans and thirty-nine Germans."
That was just one instance. The fact is that the 'wrapping up' is just beginning in Iraq. Why don't we wait awhile before trying to characterize or judge its success?

I agree that some Americans died in Germany (and I have said so in posts until I am blue in the face) but asked for *some* evidence that the death rate was the scale of the current bloodletting of Americans. My basic question was simple: how many Americans [that's total!] died in postwar guerrilla action in Germany?
BTW, five Americans died in Iraq in one twenty-four hour period this week and many more have died besides that. If folks want to make a comparison, they have an obligation to back it up with evidence.
