WASHINGTON - Today, Chairman Thornberry (R-TX) discussed Russian INF treaty violations that stem back to the Obama Administration as well as recent Russian aggression with Fox News. To watch the interview click below:
"Any time you don't stand up to aggression it will get worse. We started warning the Obama administration about this missile since 2012... They didn't ever do very much...If you don't do very much it's going to get worse and that's what we're seeing."
"We've been coasting for too long and as we've been coasting, the Russians have become more aggressive, the Chinese have become more aggressive, the North Koreans are assasinating people and launching missiles, ISIS spreads etc. So U.S. strength is the key to a safer world."
"Don't underestimate that if we pass a defense budget in the few next weeks it will be heard in the Kremlin."
