Today, Chairman Mac Thornberry (R-TX) joined America's Newsroom on Fox News to talk about reports that Iran launched a satellite into space, as well as sanctions bills moving through the Congress. Read some of the highlights below:

"We saw this pattern with North Korea...what they were really doing is improving their missile program."

"While we have all been focused on North Korea's improvements on missiles that can reach the United States, the Iranians have been doing the same thing."

"We've increasingly got to worry about the Iranian missile program which, by the way, is not constrained at all under the treaty...that the Obama administration signed."

"We have to be clear eyed, sanctions will only do so much. There is no substitute for strong military power."
