"Many" may have died before the end of the war, but then that does not address the point. How many "many" died after the German surrender? I would think that the folks who love to make the comparison would at least be mildly interested in answering this question
Here's a thought, try doing some math. From the article:
Buildings housing Allied and Soviet staffs were favourite targets for Werewolf bombings; an explosion in the Bremen police headquarters, also in June 1945, killed five Americans and thirty-nine Germans.
Fourty-four folks is a lot of folks, almost as many as we've lost since 1 May in Iraq. That was in one Werewolf attack. You're right, the comparison may not be valid; seems Hussein's deadenders are pretty ineffective compared to Goebbel's dipsticks.

Math? Boy...folks are getting desperate to prove this analogy. Five Americans died in the raid! BTW, since yo are sexing up the numbers by including non-Americans you should also include the many Iraqi police who have died since May 1. BTW, my standard is strict. I only include Americans who are, after all, my main concern.
