West German Chancellor Helmut Kohl sought Sunday to reassure Europe and Western allies that a reunified Germany will not be a threat to peace, but he made clear that the pace of reunification will be decided by the Germans themselves, not by outsiders. "This is not 1945; this is 1990," Kohl said at one point during a joint press conference with President Bush after two days of meetings between the two men at Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland north of Washington.

NEW YORK -- Deputy Defense Secretary Paul D. Wolfowitz on Thursday gave the clearest picture yet of why the White House believes that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein is committed to concealment -- not disarmament -- and that he won't be disarmed without force. Wolfowitz asserted that the U.S. has evidence that Baghdad is hiding weapons and documents from inspectors and threatening scientists and their families with death for cooperating with U.N.
