How many times during this past fall, and even on 4th of February, has the term "blitz" been called out over the airwaves? "He picked up the blitz!", "Here comes the blitz!", "They're showing blitz!" Isn't this reminiscent of WWII since it is a shortening of "blitzkrieg" or "lightning war", a term coined in WWII. There isn't any outcry against that, is there?

As for the term on the license plate, which photo below represents the Luftwaffe? The middle photo (Me109) probably is chosen when, in fact, all three represent the "Luftwaffe" in their era; in 1914-1918, 1939-1945, and 1964.
