      RUMSFELD FAMILY TIE IS FIRST VICTIM OF WAR

      The Rumsfelds of Weyhe-Sudweyhe, an unremarkable red-brick suburb of
      Bremen, were once proud of their long-lost cousin, America's
      secretary of state for defence - but no longer.

      Like many Germans, they are appalled by Donald Rumsfeld's hawkish
      attitude to military action against Saddam Hussein. About 18,000 anti-
      war demonstrators marched through Munich yesterday to protest at his
      presence at an international security conference - chanting slogans
      such as "No room for Rumsfeld!"

      "We think it is dreadful that Donald Rumsfeld is out there pushing
      for a war against Iraq," Karin Cecere (nee Rumsfeld), 59, said from
      her two-up, two-down home last week. "We are embarrassed to be
      related to him," she told The Telegraph.

      Margarete Rumsfeld, her 85-year-old mother, was equally
      dismissive: "We don't have much to do with him anymore. Nowadays he's
      just the American defence secretary to us, but for God's sake, he'd
      better not start a war," she added...

      GERMANS BELIEVE U.S. A NATION OF WARMONGERS-POLL
      Reuters, 2/10/03

      BERLIN - A majority of Germans believe the United States is a nation
      of warmongers and only six percent think President George W. Bush is
      interested in keeping the peace, according to a survey published on
      Monday.

      The poll by the respected Forsa institute, published in the Financial
      Times Deutschland newspaper, also found 97 percent of those
      questioned believed Iraqi President Saddam Hussein was ready to go to
      war.

      The survey found 57 percent agreed with the statement: "The United
      States is a nation of warmongers."

      German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder has angered the Bush
      administration with his outspoken opposition to a war in Iraq, a
      position that has widespread backing in Germany where six million
      people were killed during World War Two.

      Tens of thousands of Germans have taken part in anti-war rallies in
      recent weeks.

      The survey of 1,843 Germans found 93 percent believed Bush was ready
      to go to war in pursuit of his interests, while 80 percent said the
      United States wanted war to boost its power...
