    Postwar comparisons are many and inevitable - and sometimes they're accurate WASHINGTON – "History is more or less bunk," Henry Ford once famously declared – and that's more or less how some historians and critics view Bush administration efforts to equate today's Iraq with Germany after World War II. As concern over continuing U.S. troop casualties and unexpectedly high costs to rebuild Iraq has risen recently weeks, administration officials have sought to reassure the public by describing the situation as similar to postwar Germany. National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Iraq administrator L. Paul Bremer and other...

    This is the note sent to Rush from an officer in Iraq, read on his radio show today:***"If you compare the progress in Iraq to what happened in Germany after World War II, I'm told that in Germany it took three years to get an independent central bank. In Iraq it took two months. To get German police established, it took 14 months. In Iraq, two months. To get a new German currency, three years. In Iraq, two and a half months. To have a German cabinet, 14 months. In Iraq, four months. So some things are being achieved...

    July 20, 2003The Werewolf Principle Lessons of History, Continued: From a review of "Werewolf! The History of the National Socialist Guerrilla Movement, 1944-1946" What did the Werwolf do? They sniped. They mined roads. They poured sand into the gas tanks of jeeps. (Sugar was in short supply, no doubt.) They were especially feared for the "decapitation wires" they strung across roads. They poisoned food stocks and liquor. (The Russians had the biggest problem with this.) They committed arson, though perhaps less than they are credited with: every unexplained fire or explosion associated with a military installation tended to be blamed...

    The unlamented deaths of Saddam Hussein's two sons at the hands of soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division last week put me in mind of an old Texas saying. A sheriff investigating a homicide asks the perpetrator "why'd you kill him?" The perpetrator answers, "'cause he needed killin'." So it is with Uday and Qusay, Saddam's loyalist guerrillas, whether Iraqi or foreign-born, as well as Saddam himself. As Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz observed recently on Meet the Press, Saddam's Baathist loyalists constitute "a criminal gang of many thousands of rapists, murderers, and torturers." The 101st just bagged two...

    Washington DC, August 12, 1945 (Routers) President Truman is coming under increasing fire from some Congressional Republicans for what appears to be a deteriorating security situation in occupied Germany, with some calling for his removal from office. Over three months after a formal declaration of an end to hostilities, the occupation is bogged down. Fanatical elements of the former Nazi regime who, in their zeal to liberate their nation from the foreign occupiers, call themselves members of the Werwolf (werewolves) continue to commit almost-daily acts of sabotage against Germany's already-ravaged infrastructure, and attack American troops. They have been laying road...

A case in point is the Nazi Werewolf guerrilla movement founded by Heinrich Himmler in 1944, which fought the occupying forces of Britain, America and Russia until at least 1947. The Werewolves were originally organised by the SS and the Hitler Youth as a diversionary operation on the fringes of the Third Reich,...
