Letter: Trump willing to ignore Putin’s evils

Make no mistake, Vladimir Putin and his Russia are dangerous adversaries and are a threat to our national security. He has invaded and swallowed the Crimea and destabilized the Ukraine, and has entered a war, supporting Iran and Syria in their bloody civil war. He has no qualms about the indiscriminate killing of women and children and dropping bombs on hospitals and schools. A half-million people have been murdered. He has done nothing to signal his willingness to reform his ways.

No further upgrades required for aging track work that is known in this case to be the cause.
