    insurgent(名詞)叛亂份子

    Last Sunday amid scenes of panic and chaos, Taliban insurgents poured into Kabul, the Afghan capital and took over the Afghan government, putting a swift and shocking end to the 20-year American era in the country. It was only eight days ago that a remote provincial capital, Zaranj, became the first to surrender to the Taliban. Since then one provincial capital after another has collapsed as American-trained Afghan security forces surrendered and deserted their posts. President Ashraf Ghani of Afghanistan fled the country to Uzbekistan as well, saying that he made the “hard choice” to leave his country in order to prevent bloodshed. He also called on the Taliban to “protect the name and honor of Afghanistan.”

    上週日,在一片驚恐和混亂當中,塔利班叛亂份子湧入阿富汗首都喀布爾,接收阿富汗政權,以迅速而且令人震驚的方式結束了美國在阿富汗二十年的時光。八天以前,一個遙遠省會城市Zaranj成為第一個向塔利班投降的淪陷區。自此之後,一個又一個的省會城市相繼淪陷,由美國訓練的阿富汗安全部隊擅離職守,投降塔利班。總統Ashraf Ghani也逃離阿富汗前往烏茲別克,他表示離開阿富汗是一個「艱難的選擇」,為的是防止流血事件發生,他也呼籲塔利班要「保護阿富汗的名聲和榮譽」。

    confiscate(動詞)沒收

    As American and NATO troops began withdrawing in May, Afghan security forces swiftly collapsed. They accepted Taliban bribes, offers of safe passage and abandoned their weapons and equipment confiscated by the Taliban. “The inability of Afghan security forces to defend their country has played a very powerful role in what we’ve seen over the last few weeks,” Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken told NBC on Sunday.

    隨著美國及北約部隊在五月撤軍,阿富汗的維安部隊即迅速瓦解。他們接受塔利班賄賂、提供安全通道並放棄那些被沒收的武器及裝備。「阿富汗維安部隊無法捍衛自己的國家這件事,在過去這幾個星期所發生的事,扮演了重要的角色。」國務卿布林肯在接受NBC訪問時說。

    withdrawal(名詞)撤軍

    In Washington, Mr. Biden acknowedged that the Taliban victory had come much faster than the United States had expected and that the withdrawal was “hard and messy.” “I stand squarely behind my decision,” he said. “How many more generations of America’s daughters and sons would you have me send to fight Afghans — Afghanistan’s civil war, when Afghan troops will not?” he added when asked about the critics about the withdrawal.  

    在美國方面,拜登總統承認塔利班的勝利比美國預期得來得快,並說自阿富汗撤軍是「困難且混亂的」。「我非常堅持我撤軍的決定。」「如果阿富汗自己的軍隊都不願守住自己的國家,為何我還要派我們的子弟兵繼續在阿富汗戰鬥?」拜登總統在面對撤軍的批評時這麼回答。
