How to use encircled in a sentence?

  1. Mehmet Murat ildan:

    Fame is like a castle. Castles are beautiful to dream and wonderful to watch, but too encircled to live in!

  2. Noel Lenski:

    Thanks to this new geomagnetic survey, we have learned that the space encircled by the citys walls was fully developed and that its population was large enough even to spill beyond the citys walls, just as importantly, this was happening in a period long thought to be characterized by urban decline and demographic collapse.

  3. Andrew Schneider:

    Even Netanyahu's main rivals believe that any Palestinian entity that is established in the West Bank should be completely encircled by Israel, having no border with Jordan, the annexation plan shouldn't be dismissed as election bluster. If reelected, Netanyahu will be under tremendous pressure to implement it.

  5. John McCain:

    There is recent progress in Iraq. Three-thousand U.S.-trained and equipped Iraqi forces are among those who have encircled Ramadi and are poised for an operation to retake the city from ISIS. Shipments of U.S. weapons are finally arriving to fighters in a timely fashion. But while Defense Ash Carter has not ruled out the use of forward air controllers, Defense Ash Carter said : I talked about that with our commanders … here. They have not recommended us taking that step at this time. Critics in Washington, like Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., have excoriated commanders for not recommending them. Obviously ISIS is winning in Iraq and for you not to be in favor of us having forward air controllers on the ground in some scholastic answer, you know full well as I do -- forward air controllers make the difference.
