BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 P.M.) – The U.K. Defense Minister Tobias Ellwood rejected the recent comments by U.S. President Donald Trump on defeating the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) in Syria.

After Trump tweeted that “we have defeated ISIS (Islamic State) in Syria,” Tobias Ellwood replied “I strongly disagree.”

“(Islamic State) has morphed into other forms of extremism and the threat is very much alive,” the junior minister said in a tweet.

The U.S. military has already begun withdrawing their forces from Syria; however, no timetable has been set for their troops to completely leave the country.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
