U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) issued the following statement in response to the ISIS attacks in Brussels: 

"Today’s attacks in Brussels are yet another reminder of the evil that exists in this world and seeks to do us harm. The U.S. stands with Belgium, but we all can and should do more to defeat ISIS. That does not mean that the U.S. must solve all the problems of the world, but it does mean that America is a unique force for good. Without our leadership, the world is a more dangerous place.

"Thankfully, we have the greatest military in the world standing ready for our defense. I will continue to do everything I can to support our military and see that it has the resources it needs to carry out its mission. I hope you all will continue to pray for our nation, for our men and women in uniform and their families, and for the many innocent people around the world who continue to suffer at the hands of such evil."
