Iraq was liberated but there is still a guerilla war going on. Germany is not a model for Iraq expectations.

Except that in the months after the end of the war with Germany there were guerilla operations going on against the Allies and against Germans working with them. Besides, no one said that Germany is a model for Iraq expectations. The point is that people are bitching about things in Iraq that have been taken care of in less time than in Germany after WWII. The only thing one can do is to compare a current conflict and its aftermath with previous ones. There is nothing untoward with doing so.

I would like to see the source reference for Germany guerilla operations. I was there and there was none in Bavaria or Austria. The months after the end of the German war we were ready for possible deployment to the Pacific and the Germans were not screwing around with us. (maybe in the Russia area but not the US). This is urban legend without specific sources.
