WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today Congressman Poe (TX-02), Chairman of the Subcommittee on Terrorism, sponsored H. Res. 658 , condemning in the strongest terms the terrorist attacks in Brussels on March 22, 2016, which murdered more than 30 innocent people, and severely wounded many more. The House passed the resolution unanimously.
“ISIS is responsible for at least 75 attacks in 20 countries, killing over 1,280 people. Thousands more have been slaughtered by this terror army inside the borders of Iraq and Syria. This indiscriminate and barbaric killing will come to our shores once again if we do not go on the offense to defeat our enemy, radical Islamic terrorists. Today the House of Representatives sends a message to our friends in Belgium that we stand with them in the face of this unspeakable evil as they care for the wounded, mourn the dead and bring these killers to justice. We also send a message to the terrorists—the United States will not stand by and watch this become the new normal. Together with our allies we will defeat and destroy you.”
