WW II Flashback: 'Terrorists' Kill 1,000 Americans in Postwar Germany

The president declared victory over a year ago, but terrorists continue to pick off U.S. troops and even American civilians at the rate of three per day. The maniacal dictator may be long gone, but his hard-core followers continue to wreak havoc across the land, with the interim government seemingly powerless to stop the mayhem. Back home, the press takes an increasingly pessimistic tone, with some of the most prominent news organs pronouncing the U.S.'s postwar strategy an abject failure.

Iraq 2004? Not exactly.

Try Germany 1946, in the first year after World War II. To hear the liberals tell the story, once the Allies conquered the Nazis, they stayed conquered - with American forces treated like the liberators they were. But according to Fox News Channel war historian Oliver North, not every conquered German welcomed the American occupation with open arms.

On Monday North detailed the little-known truth about the post-World War II U.S. experience to ABC radio host Sean Hannity:

"From May 8, 1945 until June 1946, over a thousand Americans and their dependents were killed by German terrorists," he explained, while discussing his new book, "War Stories II: Heroism in the Pacific."

So, how did the U.S. eventually quell the violence?

"General Eisenhower went to [interim German leader] Konrad Adenauer, the guy we hand-picked to run the new government," said North. "And he told him, 'You either stop this or we'll get a new guy to run this country.'"

Adenauer prompty contacted the Wermacht and told them to take care of the problem at all costs, using former SS troops if necessary. "It wasn't pretty," said North. "There were no trials - nobody was brought before tribunals or anything like that.

The German army just went out and took care of it. And the killing stopped."

Added North, "I think that's probably what's going to happen in Iraq."

I read somewhere that if our men where shot at when they entered a German town, they?d send in a jeep and announce that they have one hour to give up there guns and surrender or be bombed or shelled till the town was leveled. It worked!

This war has been so clean compared to others due to precision weapons and a policy to minimize damage.

Could you imagine if a Dresden or Hamburg style bombing happened? The media would crap themselves!
