The U.S. must prioritize competition with China

Clifford May is right to suggest that the competition between the United States and China will be determined by will. But it will also be determined by the ability of the U.S. to focus and prioritize, including with respect to its defense posture ("Beijing's strategy for Cold War," Web, Dec. 1)

The Democrats' destructive road

The liberal left is out of control and is destroying America. The Democrats realize their time in power is short. America today is in total chaos. From our open southern border to the unplanned Afghanistan debacle, the party has taken us down a destructive road.

Maxwell treatment shameful

Human rights lawyers Francois Zimeray and Jessica Finelle have filed a complaint with the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention alleging "serious violations of Ghislaine Maxwell's defence rights and presumption of innocence."

When prosecutors get it wrong

Recently we have seen three high-profile cases in which prosecutor decisions have been proven badly wrong. In Wisconsin, Kyle Rittenhouse, seriously overcharged in the opinion of many legal experts, was found not guilty of every single charge. In Georgia, prosecutors initially decided not to bring a single charge in the Ahmaud Arbery killing, but a jury found the defendants guilty of felony murder. Again in Wisconsin, trivial bail for a multiple violent offender led to the deaths of six people and the injury of 61 in the parade rampage. Should prosecutors have so much discretion that they can get it so wrong?
