On December 19th, Donald Trump ordered the troops from Syria to come home. This decision has been criticized by many. This decision even lead Secretary Of Defense Jim Mattis to resign from his position. But there are reasons that this was a good decision. When Trump claimed that ISIS had already been defeated, he wasn’t entirely wrong. While there are still some ISIS members in the area, ISIS has no territory. The territory of ISIS has been declining since late 2014 and started rapidly declining in 2017. So ISIS, in terms of territory, has actually been defeated. So why shouldn’t we return our soldiers home once the job is done? The soldiers are in a hazardous area of the world. We shouldn’t continue to risk their lives. The US has done its job already. It’s time to bring the soldiers home.
