    Precipitate(動詞)加速;促進

    On April 14, U.S President Biden declared that all American troops would leave Afghanistan by Sept. 11, the 20th anniversary of the 911 attack, which is also the seismic event that precipitated the initial military invasion in this country. During nearly two decades of war, American forces had launched attacks against the terrorist group and Taliban targets in Afghanistan.

    4月14日,美國總統拜登宣布所有美國軍隊將在今年9月11日之前從阿富汗撤離。這也是九一一恐怖攻擊事件的二十周年,同時也是促使美國對阿富汗進行軍事入侵的重要事件。在將近二十年的戰爭之中,美國軍隊發動攻擊打擊恐怖組織,以及在阿富汗的塔利班目標。

    topple(動詞)推翻

    As 2001 drew to a close, the Taliban government was quickly toppled and its fighting forces were crushed. In May 2003, the U.S. Secretary of Defense announced an end to major combat operations in the country. After routing the Taliban, the United States and NATO pivoted to establishing a Western-style democracy, spending billions trying to reconstruct a desperately poor country already ravaged by wars.

    在2001年底時,塔利班政府很快被推翻,他的作戰勢力也被徹底摧毀。在2003年5月時,美國國防部長宣布,在阿富汗境內的主要作戰行動結束。在擊退塔利班之後,美國及北約將重點放在重建一個崩潰的國家,將之改造成西方式的民主政體,在此任務上花費數十億美金,試圖重建這飽受戰爭蹂躪的貧窮國家。

    misappropriate(動詞)挪用

    However, except some early successes, corruption had been rampant, with hundreds of millions of dollars in reconstruction and investment money stolen or misappropriated. While the Biden administration conceded that it was clear the U.S. military could not transform this country into a modern, stable democracy, he still pledges to continue support for Afghanistan and ensures that it will never again be used to plan and launch terrorist attacks.

    然而,除了初期一些成功的案例外,阿富汗政府內腐敗猖獗,數億美元的重建和投資基金不是被竊取就是被挪用。當拜登政府承認,經過這麼多年的努力,美國顯然無法將阿富汗改造成一個現代、穩定的民主國家,他也誓言將繼續支持阿富汗的發展,確保阿富汗不再被用來策劃和發動恐怖攻擊。
