Carroll County Times Opinion
Let's begin with an assertion: Vladimir Putin does not have the United States' best interests at heart. It's fair to say that Putin believes what's bad for the U.S. is good for Russia. His actions in Ukraine, with Syrian despot Assad, and toward NATO all provide ample evidence that he is not our nation's friend. Putin is all for the breakup of the European Union; he sees weakening of economic, political and social stability of European democracies as a very good thing for Russia.
