and with what for example Sunnis fought after the Iraqi army was completely crushed ? you don't need tanks to fight - small arms, bullets and explosives were in more than sufficient supply :-)... it is just they (Germans/Japanese) did not have any will & determination whatsoever even to try, even probably just once... I mean - do u recall or can find a single incident say in 1946 of attacks against occupying forces in Germany or Japan ? try to google.

May I suggest -

https://www.theguardian.com/books/2011/apr/24/exorcising-hitler-germany-frederick-taylor

It's a good read and lays bare the POW camps that German soldiers were kept in for the first winter of defeat and explains how the country was slowly returned to civilian government and so on. I certainly had a better understanding of the aftermath of the war in Europe after reading it, you might to.

Shouldn't be a problem, Slobodan. Jesus is in the Koran in several places. He's held in high regard.

Bomber pledged allegiance to IS

Then again, who's bright idea was to place Muslim refugees in a building with THAT on top!?

One could say that the root cause was really the Americans meddling in Syria and not finishing the job. And then supporting a conflict with three armed parties fighting against each other isn't exactly the best recipe for success. 

... I prefer to focus on things that can be done (even if they are hard to do), instead of focusing on the things that cannot be done...

Things that can be done: not letting refugees in (your own decision)

Things that cannot be done (by you): Changing American policies

What "seasoned pro" means beats me...

Theodorus, I guess the meaning is easily lost in translation.

A 'seasoned professional' is simply a professional with many years experience.

... if the guns in Germany could be obtained as easily as in USA, with 1.1 million refugees... 

Or they can drive a truck. No machine gun produced as many fatalities in a single attack.

Then again, why not go for the root cause and not have 1.1 million refugees in the first place?
