You keep wanting a number of American soldiers killed in post-war Germany. I've sent you many links that don't give numbers but rather tell how many ways they killed us. We weren't quite so into statistics in the post-war phase as people are now; same with poll numbers.
Would a high number of American soldiers killed in post-war Germany change your mind? I think not. It's a false argument you are making.

(The Clintons have pardoned more terrorists than they ever captured or killed.)
Yes, it *would* change my mind. I would think since you are advancing this argument, you would be the first to want hard numbers to indicate that the situations are comparable. Otherwise, nobody, not even people who agree with you on the war, will take you seriously. BTW, I have been willing to find the numbers....myself. I called up the Center for Military History in Washington D.C. (an arm of the federal government). I talked to an expert on the occuation and he dismissed the comparision as total nonsense. Unfortunately, he did not have numbers either.
Gee whiz, you're a nice guy! This is the thanks I get for answering your question directly.
