TIME’S CHOICE RE “PERSON OF THE YEAR” [Dec. 23–30]: Greta Thunberg richly deserves the honor. She has mobilized global opinion and attention on a key issue of our times. She and her family should be proud. The world needs more young leaders like her who unite nations and do not splinter people on the basis of religion or race. Raju Aneja, MUMBAI IS YOUR PUBLICATION PURposely trying to put Donald Trump in a good light? He is right about your choice for Person of the Year: it is ridiculous. Choosing a child whose achievement in life is to theatrically recite whatever melodramatic script is written for her is an insult to all the hard-working scientists who have spent years researching the subject.

‘It doesn’t really matter.’DONALD TRUMP, U.S. President, in a Jan. 13 tweet on whether Iran’s General Qasem Soleimani was plotting “imminent” attacks, as the Trump Administration claimed after he was killed on Jan. 3 by an American drone strike‘I hope the Beijing authorities understand that democratic Taiwan, and our democratically elected government, will not concede to threats and intimidation.’TSAI ING-WEN, President of Taiwan, after winning a landslide re-election victory on Jan. 11‘I THOUGHT A WOMAN COULD WIN; HE DISAGREED.’ELIZABETH WARREN, Massachusetts Senator and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, in a statement released on Jan. 13 describing a private December 2018 meeting she had with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders; he denied making the remark‘This airplane is designed by clowns, who in turn are supervised by monkeys.’A BOEING COMPANY PILOT, on the now…

the candidates stuck in d.c.

THE LOOMING SENATE TRIAL OF PRESIDENT Donald Trump has claimed its first victim, and it’s not the besieged Commander in Chief, any of his closest aides or even a Republican. On Jan. 13, Senator Cory Booker ended his race for the Democrats’ White House nomination, blaming the decision partly on the fact that “the urgent business of impeachment will rightly be keeping me in Washington.” Booker’s attendance at Trump’s trial is not optional. Senators are required to be in the Capitol for it, every afternoon from Monday to Saturday, under penalty of arrest by the sergeant at arms. And Booker’s not the only one affected. Once the proceedings begin in earnest—perhaps as soon as Jan. 21, just 13 days before the Iowa caucuses—four candidates for the Democratic nomination, including top contenders…

iranian authotiries struggle to contain protests after downing of jetliner

IT TOOK THREE DAYS FOR IRAN TO ADMIT the truth. Hours after it launched missiles at bases in Iraq that house U.S. troops on Jan. 8, a Ukraine International Airlines passenger jet bound for Kyiv crashed shortly after taking off from Tehran, killing all 176 on board. Iranian officials suggested the cause was technical failure but backtracked on Jan. 11, saying “human error” had led its military to shoot down the plane and blaming “U.S. adventurism” for creating the situation. Angry and distrustful, Iranians poured onto the streets as footage circulated of protesters chanting, “Death to the dictator.” SENTIMENT SWING Days earlier, millions of Iranians had gathered in grief and rage after a U.S. airstrike killed Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani on Jan. 3. But the feeling shifted when it seemed Tehran…

Trump to divert defense funds for wall President Trump is planning to spend $7.2 billion of Pentagon funds on border-wall construction, according to unreleased figures obtained by media outlets. The money, taken from military counterdrug and construction projects, is five times the amount allocated by Congress for the wall in 2020. Russia hacked Ukrainian gas company A U.S. cybersecurity firm said Russian military hackers successfully infiltrated Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian gas firm at the center of President Trump’s impeachment. The New York Times first reported the hack on Jan. 13, noting it began in November, months after Trump urged Ukraine to investigate Hunter Biden, who had served on Burisma’s board. More women are dying from drinking Alcohol-related deaths among U.S. women rose 85% from 1999 to 2017, adjusted for population growth, according to a Jan.…
