The compatibility of the strong interaction theory called Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) with relevant experimental data is critically examined. The clear advantage of the Regular ChargeMonopole Theory over QCD is explained. An analysis of new data provides further support for this claim. The paper points out several specific effects that illustrate this conclusion: the hard photon-nucleon interaction, the striking difference between the high energy electron-proton and proton-proton cross section, the peripheral location of the proton’s antiquark, the strong CP problem, the quite large amount of the ss ¯ pair in the proton, the excess of the proton’s d¯antiquarks over its u¯ antiquarks, and the spin-dependence of high energy polarized proton-proton scattering. These problematic issues are in accordance with M. Gell-Mann’s recently published qualms about the QCD merits.
