Last night I watched the History Channel's rebroadcast of the German Guerillas during WWII and it was astounding how similar to today's Iraq the situation was. Down to the disbanding of the army, a heavily armed population, and even 50% unemployment!
The terrorists known as "Werewolves" were SS members and Nazi Party members with numbers of 5000 or more who started their attacks before the war ended - infiltrating enemy lines, placing mines, murdering and terrorizing communities who cooperated with the occupying army.
The lessons learned may be in place today. One of the decisive moments was when the people of post war Germany rose up to demonstrate against the bombings - but this was nearly 2 years after the war was over and there was no going back!
A Bush victory would be a repudiation of the party that calls their traitorous cut and run'ner a hero - a Bush blowout would be a COMPLETE repudiation of the Lie-N-Hype Moore-on's and should cause a refocusing of the left as to how out of the mainstream they are. I thought that would happen after 2002, but they just ran farther left with the likes of Nancy Blows-me (Pelosi) and Tom (It's WRONG) Daschle.
Now the amazing part is that I had to keep flipping back and forth so I didn't miss any of the top 27 episodes of South Park!
