The Issue: Chinese President Xi Jinping’s summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow.
While the Biden administration frets over pronouns, China is building up relationships with Middle East countries Iran and Saudi Arabia and also with Russia, all oil-producing nations (“Putin-Xi summit: 21st-Century Axis,” John Bolton, PostOpinion, March 22).
Why, you might ask? Well, it could be that they intend to cut off our oil supply if and when they invade Taiwan. It would limit our ability to offer much aid to that country and would weaken our nation against any further aggression by China against us.
When will the Biden administration wake up to the real dangers facing this country, instead of kow-towing to the left?
We are witnessing the largest geopolitical shift in our lifetime.
Since President Biden took office, China has enhanced its position in Africa, other parts of Asia and in our own hemisphere in South America.
The American people do not stay up at night worried about climate change, gender or equity. But the formation of an axis of evil that includes Russia, China, North Korea and Iran does cause insomnia.
This president should be sending a strong message to China that sending arms to Russia would result in an immediate response.
Chinese President Xi Jinping’s state visit to Russia needs to be looked at very seriously because China could very well begin giving arms to help Russia in its war with Ukraine.
The United States must make it clear in the most blunt terms that China will have economic sanctions imposed upon it should it decide to supply Russia with military hardware.
China is continuing to become more formidable on the world stage, and its actions need to be very carefully watched.
At the conclusion of the summit between Xi and Russian President Vladimir Putin, wolf warrior Xi turned to his plutocratic puppy and said that they will drive change “not seen in 100 years.”
But both fail to recognize that this prophecy spells their own doom. Their actions have produced global democratic unity. The newfound strength of NATO and the seductive power of freedom have captivated my generation.
The enlightenment of billions will energize us to embrace independence from China. There is no doubt in my mind that our answer to this alarm bell of attack upon liberty will garner one response: We shall fight.

The Issue: Upper East Side residents’ complaints about dog feces being left on the sidewalks.
The dog-doo problem is not only a problem on the Upper East Side; it’s a problem all over the city (“Sidewalks of ’Doo York City,” March 22).
What is wrong with these dog owners? Do they not care about their neighborhood?
Dog feces on our sidewalks is a big-time health problem, and the city is not enforcing the rules that would stop this disgusting conduct by some (but not all) dog owners.
Let’s up the Sanitation Department fine to $1,000, plus a Health Department fine of $1,000 for good measure.
New York is a funny place. People are complaining about dogs defecating on the sidewalk.
However, there are people defecating on the sidewalks, and nobody seems to care. To me, the bigger problem is stepping over people and used needles and the public urination in the street. Fix that, and then we can deal with the dogs.
