THE PRESIDENT: Good evening. To the United States Corps of Cadets, to the men and women of our Armed Services, and to my fellow Americans: I want to speak to you tonight about our effort in Afghanistan -- the nature of our commitment there, the scope of our interests, and the strategy that my administration will pursue to bring this war to a successful conclusion. It's an extraordinary honor for me to do so here at West Point -- where so many men and women have prepared to stand up for our security, and to represent what is finest about our country.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

To address these important issues, it's important to recall why America and our allies were compelled to fight a war in Afghanistan in the first place. We did not ask for this fight. On September 11, 2001, 19 men hijacked four airplanes and used them to murder nearly 3,000 people. They struck at our military and economic nerve centers. They took the lives of innocent men, women, and children without regard to their faith or race or station. Were it not for the heroic actions of passengers onboard one of those flights, they could have also struck at one of the great symbols of our democracy in Washington, and killed many more.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

As we know, these men belonged to al Qaeda -- a group of extremists who have distorted and defiled Islam, one of the world's great religions, to justify the slaughter of innocents. Al Qaeda's base of operations was in Afghanistan, where they were harbored by the Taliban -- a ruthless, repressive and radical movement that seized control of that country after it was ravaged by years of Soviet occupation and civil war, and after the attention of America and our friends had turned elsewhere.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Just days after 9/11, Congress authorized the use of force against al Qaeda and those who harbored them -- an authorization that continues to this day. The vote in the Senate was 98 to nothing. The vote in the House was 420 to 1. For the first time in its history, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization invoked Article 5 -- the commitment that says an attack on one member nation is an attack on all. And the United Nations Security Council endorsed the use of all necessary steps to respond to the 9/11 attacks. America, our allies and the world were acting as one to destroy al Qaeda's terrorist network and to protect our common security.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Under the banner of this domestic unity and international legitimacy -- and only after the Taliban refused to turn over Osama bin Laden -- we sent our troops into Afghanistan. Within a matter of months, al Qaeda was scattered and many of its operatives were killed. The Taliban was driven from power and pushed back on its heels. A place that had known decades of fear now had reason to hope. At a conference convened by the U.N., a provisional government was established under President Hamid Karzai. And an International Security Assistance Force was established to help bring a lasting peace to a war-torn country.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Then, in early 2003, the decision was made to wage a second war, in Iraq. The wrenching debate over the Iraq war is well-known and need not be repeated here. It's enough to say that for the next six years, the Iraq war drew the dominant share of our troops, our resources, our diplomacy, and our national attention -- and that the decision to go into Iraq caused substantial rifts between America and much of the world.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Today, after extraordinary costs, we are bringing the Iraq war to a responsible end. We will remove our combat brigades from Iraq by the end of next summer, and all of our troops by the end of 2011. That we are doing so is a testament to the character of the men and women in uniform. (Applause.) Thanks to their courage, grit and perseverance, we have given Iraqis a chance to shape their future, and we are successfully leaving Iraq to its people.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

But while we've achieved hard-earned milestones in Iraq, the situation in Afghanistan has deteriorated. After escaping across the border into Pakistan in 2001 and 2002, al Qaeda's leadership established a safe haven there. Although a legitimate government was elected by the Afghan people, it's been hampered by corruption, the drug trade, an under-developed economy, and insufficient security forces.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Over the last several years, the Taliban has maintained common cause with al Qaeda, as they both seek an overthrow of the Afghan government. Gradually, the Taliban has begun to control additional swaths of territory in Afghanistan, while engaging in increasingly brazen and devastating attacks of terrorism against the Pakistani people.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司


在探讨这些重要问题时,有必要回顾一下美国及其盟友最初被迫在阿富汗开战的原因。这场战争不是我们挑起的。2001年9月11 日,19名男子劫持了四架飞机,并利用这四架飞机杀害了近3000名民众。他们撞击了我们的军事和经济神经中枢。他们屠杀了无辜的男女老少,并不区分信仰、种族或社会地位。若不是其中一架飞机上的乘客采取了英勇的行动,他们还可能撞击我国民主制度在华盛顿的宏伟标志之一,并夺去更多人的生命。vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

我们知道,这些人是"基地"组织(al Qaeda)成员--这个由极端主义分子组成的组织歪曲并玷污了全世界最伟大的宗教之一--伊斯兰教,以便为滥杀无辜寻找借口。"基地"组织的行动基地设在阿富汗,受到塔利班(Taliban)的庇护。塔利班是一个残酷无情、压制成性、极端激进的组织,在阿富汗多年遭受苏联占领和内战蹂躏后夺取政权,而当时美国和我国盟友的注意力已转向其他地区。vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

在"9.11"事件发生短短数日后,国会授权对"基地"组织以及那些庇护该组织的人使用武力--这项授权至今依然有效。当时参议院的表决结果是98票对0票,众议院的表决结果是420票对1票。北大西洋公约组织(North Atlantic Treaty Organization)有史以来首次实施第五条--该条规定对一个成员国的攻击应被视为对所有成员国的攻击。联合国安理会(United Nations Security Council)也支持采取一切必要行动,应对"9.11"袭击事件。美国、我国盟友及全世界采取一致行动,旨在摧毁"基地"恐怖主义组织网络,保卫我们的共同安全。vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

在这种国内团结和国际授权的形势下--而且是在塔利班拒绝交出乌萨马.本.拉登(Osama bin Laden)之后--我们派兵进入阿富汗。在短短几个月内,"基地"组织溃不成军,很多成员被击毙。塔利班被赶下台,狼狈逃窜。这个几十年来被恐怖所笼罩的地方看到了希望之光。在一次由联合国召集的会议上,组建了一个以哈米德.卡尔扎伊(Hamid Karzai)为总统的临时政府。同时建立了一支国际安全援助部队(International Security Assistance Force),以帮助这个遭受战争蹂躏的国家实现持久和平。vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司




在这个时期,我国在阿富汗的驻军规模仅相当于在伊拉克的一小部分。在我就任总统时,驻扎在阿富汗的美军人数刚刚超过32,000人,而伊拉克的美国驻军人数最多曾达到160,000人。阿富汗驻军的指挥官多次请求增援,以反击卷土重来的塔利班,但始终未能如愿。因此,我在就职不久后便批准已提出多时的增兵请求。在同我国盟友进行磋商之后,我宣布了一项战略,阐明了我们在阿富汗的作战行动与极端主义分子在巴基斯坦的藏身地之间的重要联系。我制定了一个目标,具体而言便是"挫败、瓦解并战胜‘基地'组织及其极端主义同伙 ",并承诺更好地协调我们的军事及非军事行动。vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司
Now, throughout this period, our troop levels in Afghanistan remained a fraction of what they were in Iraq. When I took office, we had just over 32,000 Americans serving in Afghanistan, compared to 160,000 in Iraq at the peak of the war. Commanders in Afghanistan repeatedly asked for support to deal with the reemergence of the Taliban, but these reinforcements did not arrive. And that's why, shortly after taking office, I approved a longstanding request for more troops. After consultations with our allies, I then announced a strategy recognizing the fundamental connection between our war effort in Afghanistan and the extremist safe havens in Pakistan. I set a goal that was narrowly defined as disrupting, dismantling, and defeating al Qaeda and its extremist allies, and pledged to better coordinate our military and civilian efforts.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司


Since then, we've made progress on some important objectives. High-ranking al Qaeda and Taliban leaders have been killed, and we've stepped up the pressure on al Qaeda worldwide. In Pakistan, that nation's army has gone on its largest offensive in years. In Afghanistan, we and our allies prevented the Taliban from stopping a presidential election, and -- although it was marred by fraud -- that election produced a government that is consistent with Afghanistan's laws and constitution.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Yet huge challenges remain. Afghanistan is not lost, but for several years it has moved backwards. There's no imminent threat of the government being overthrown, but the Taliban has gained momentum. Al Qaeda has not reemerged in Afghanistan in the same numbers as before 9/11, but they retain their safe havens along the border. And our forces lack the full support they need to effectively train and partner with Afghan security forces and better secure the population. Our new commander in Afghanistan -- General McChrystal -- has reported that the security situation is more serious than he anticipated. In short: The status quo is not sustainable.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

As cadets, you volunteered for service during this time of danger. Some of you fought in Afghanistan. Some of you will deploy there. As your Commander-in-Chief, I owe you a mission that is clearly defined, and worthy of your service. And that's why, after the Afghan voting was completed, I insisted on a thorough review of our strategy. Now, let me be clear: There has never been an option before me that called for troop deployments before 2010, so there has been no delay or denial of resources necessary for the conduct of the war during this review period. Instead, the review has allowed me to ask the hard questions, and to explore all the different options, along with my national security team, our military and civilian leadership in Afghanistan, and our key partners. And given the stakes involved, I owed the American people -- and our troops -- no less.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

This review is now complete. And as Commander-in-Chief, I have determined that it is in our vital national interest to send an additional 30,000 U.S. troops to Afghanistan. After 18 months, our troops will begin to come home. These are the resources that we need to seize the initiative, while building the Afghan capacity that can allow for a responsible transition of our forces out of Afghanistan.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

I do not make this decision lightly. I opposed the war in Iraq precisely because I believe that we must exercise restraint in the use of military force, and always consider the long-term consequences of our actions. We have been at war now for eight years, at enormous cost in lives and resources. Years of debate over Iraq and terrorism have left our unity on national security issues in tatters, and created a highly polarized and partisan backdrop for this effort. And having just experienced the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, the American people are understandably focused on rebuilding our economy and putting people to work here at home.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Most of all, I know that this decision asks even more of you -- a military that, along with your families, has already borne the heaviest of all burdens. As President, I have signed a letter of condolence to the family of each American who gives their life in these wars. I have read the letters from the parents and spouses of those who deployed. I visited our courageous wounded warriors at Walter Reed. I've traveled to Dover to meet the flag-draped caskets of 18 Americans returning home to their final resting place. I see firsthand the terrible wages of war. If I did not think that the security of the United States and the safety of the American people were at stake in Afghanistan, I would gladly order every single one of our troops home tomorrow.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

So, no, I do not make this decision lightly. I make this decision because I am convinced that our security is at stake in Afghanistan and Pakistan. This is the epicenter of violent extremism practiced by al Qaeda. It is from here that we were attacked on 9/11, and it is from here that new attacks are being plotted as I speak. This is no idle danger; no hypothetical threat. In the last few months alone, we have apprehended extremists within our borders who were sent here from the border region of Afghanistan and Pakistan to commit new acts of terror. And this danger will only grow if the region slides backwards, and al Qaeda can operate with impunity. We must keep the pressure on al Qaeda, and to do that, we must increase the stability and capacity of our partners in the region.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Of course, this burden is not ours alone to bear. This is not just America's war. Since 9/11, al Qaeda's safe havens have been the source of attacks against London and Amman and Bali. The people and governments of both Afghanistan and Pakistan are endangered. And the stakes are even higher within a nuclear-armed Pakistan, because we know that al Qaeda and other extremists seek nuclear weapons, and we have every reason to believe that they would use them.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

These facts compel us to act along with our friends and allies. Our overarching goal remains the same: to disrupt, dismantle, and defeat al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and to prevent its capacity to threaten America and our allies in the future.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司


然而,巨大的挑战依然存在。阿富汗没有崩溃,但在数年里出现了倒退。政府没有面临被推翻的紧迫威胁,但塔利班的势力增大。"基地"组织在阿富汗并没有恢复到"9.11"之前的规模,但保持了他们在边境地区的藏身之地。我们的军队没有获得他们所需要的足够的支持,因此未能有效地训练阿富汗安全部队并与他们合作以更好地保护人民的安全。我们的新任阿富汗指挥官麦克里斯托尔(Stanley McChrystal)上将报告说,安全局势比他预期的情况更加严重。要言之:目前的状况无法维持。vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司




最重要的是,我知道这项决定要求你们作出更大奉献--你们这些军人以及你们的家人已经承受着最沉重的负担。身为总统,我签署了发给在这两场战争中失去亲人的每一个家庭的唁函。我阅读了那些奔赴疆场的官兵的父母妻子发来的信件,在沃尔特里德医院(Walter Reed)看望了勇敢的伤员,并前往多佛(Dover)迎接18名美国军人的覆盖着国旗的灵柩,迎接他们回到永久安息之地。我亲眼目睹战争恐怖的代价。如果我不认为阿富汗关系到美国国家和人民的安全,我会乐意地命令我们的每一名军人明天就回国。vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司



To meet that goal, we will pursue the following objectives within Afghanistan. We must deny al Qaeda a safe haven. We must reverse the Taliban's momentum and deny it the ability to overthrow the government. And we must strengthen the capacity of Afghanistan's security forces and government so that they can take lead responsibility for Afghanistan's future.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司


We will meet these objectives in three ways. First, we will pursue a military strategy that will break the Taliban's momentum and increase Afghanistan's capacity over the next 18 months.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

The 30,000 additional troops that I'm announcing tonight will deploy in the first part of 2010 -- the fastest possible pace -- so that they can target the insurgency and secure key population centers. They'll increase our ability to train competent Afghan security forces, and to partner with them so that more Afghans can get into the fight. And they will help create the conditions for the United States to transfer responsibility to the Afghans.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Because this is an international effort, I've asked that our commitment be joined by contributions from our allies. Some have already provided additional troops, and we're confident that there will be further contributions in the days and weeks ahead. Our friends have fought and bled and died alongside us in Afghanistan. And now, we must come together to end this war successfully. For what's at stake is not simply a test of NATO's credibility -- what's at stake is the security of our allies, and the common security of the world.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

But taken together, these additional American and international troops will allow us to accelerate handing over responsibility to Afghan forces, and allow us to begin the transfer of our forces out of Afghanistan in July of 2011. Just as we have done in Iraq, we will execute this transition responsibly, taking into account conditions on the ground. We'll continue to advise and assist Afghanistan's security forces to ensure that they can succeed over the long haul. But it will be clear to the Afghan government -- and, more importantly, to the Afghan people -- that they will ultimately be responsible for their own country.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Second, we will work with our partners, the United Nations, and the Afghan people to pursue a more effective civilian strategy, so that the government can take advantage of improved security.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

This effort must be based on performance. The days of providing a blank check are over. President Karzai's inauguration speech sent the right message about moving in a new direction. And going forward, we will be clear about what we expect from those who receive our assistance. We'll support Afghan ministries, governors, and local leaders that combat corruption and deliver for the people. We expect those who are ineffective or corrupt to be held accountable. And we will also focus our assistance in areas -- such as agriculture -- that can make an immediate impact in the lives of the Afghan people.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

The people of Afghanistan have endured violence for decades. They've been confronted with occupation -- by the Soviet Union, and then by foreign al Qaeda fighters who used Afghan land for their own purposes. So tonight, I want the Afghan people to understand -- America seeks an end to this era of war and suffering. We have no interest in occupying your country. We will support efforts by the Afghan government to open the door to those Taliban who abandon violence and respect the human rights of their fellow citizens. And we will seek a partnership with Afghanistan grounded in mutual respect -- to isolate those who destroy; to strengthen those who build; to hasten the day when our troops will leave; and to forge a lasting friendship in which America is your partner, and never your patron.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Third, we will act with the full recognition that our success in Afghanistan is inextricably linked to our partnership with Pakistan.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

We're in Afghanistan to prevent a cancer from once again spreading through that country. But this same cancer has also taken root in the border region of Pakistan. That's why we need a strategy that works on both sides of the border.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司







阿富汗人民饱受暴力蹂躏已有数十年之久。他们曾有国土被占领的经历--苏联的入侵,然后是外来"基地"组织武装人员,这些人试图利用阿富汗的领土达到自己的目的。为此,今晚我希望阿富汗人民能够明白- 美国是要结束这些战争和苦难的岁月。我们无意占领你们的国家。我们支持阿富汗政府向放弃暴力和尊重本国同胞人权的塔利班人员敞开大门。我们还希望在相互尊重的基础上与阿富汗建立伙伴关系 - 孤立那些采取破坏行为的人;支援那些从事建设的人;让我军撤出的日子早日到来;同时相互建立永恒的友谊,让美国成为你们的伙伴,永远不以庇护者的身份出现。vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司



In the past, there have been those in Pakistan who've argued that the struggle against extremism is not their fight, and that Pakistan is better off doing little or seeking accommodation with those who use violence. But in recent years, as innocents have been killed from Karachi to Islamabad, it has become clear that it is the Pakistani people who are the most endangered by extremism. Public opinion has turned. The Pakistani army has waged an offensive in Swat and South Waziristan. And there is no doubt that the United States and Pakistan share a common enemy.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

In the past, we too often defined our relationship with Pakistan narrowly. Those days are over. Moving forward, we are committed to a partnership with Pakistan that is built on a foundation of mutual interest, mutual respect, and mutual trust. We will strengthen Pakistan's capacity to target those groups that threaten our countries, and have made it clear that we cannot tolerate a safe haven for terrorists whose location is known and whose intentions are clear. America is also providing substantial resources to support Pakistan's democracy and development. We are the largest international supporter for those Pakistanis displaced by the fighting. And going forward, the Pakistan people must know America will remain a strong supporter of Pakistan's security and prosperity long after the guns have fallen silent, so that the great potential of its people can be unleashed.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

These are the three core elements of our strategy: a military effort to create the conditions for a transition; a civilian surge that reinforces positive action; and an effective partnership with Pakistan.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

I recognize there are a range of concerns about our approach. So let me briefly address a few of the more prominent arguments that I've heard, and which I take very seriously.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

First, there are those who suggest that Afghanistan is another Vietnam. They argue that it cannot be stabilized, and we're better off cutting our losses and rapidly withdrawing. I believe this argument depends on a false reading of history. Unlike Vietnam, we are joined by a broad coalition of 43 nations that recognizes the legitimacy of our action. Unlike Vietnam, we are not facing a broad-based popular insurgency. And most importantly, unlike Vietnam, the American people were viciously attacked from Afghanistan, and remain a target for those same extremists who are plotting along its border. To abandon this area now -- and to rely only on efforts against al Qaeda from a distance -- would significantly hamper our ability to keep the pressure on al Qaeda, and create an unacceptable risk of additional attacks on our homeland and our allies.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Second, there are those who acknowledge that we can't leave Afghanistan in its current state, but suggest that we go forward with the troops that we already have. But this would simply maintain a status quo in which we muddle through, and permit a slow deterioration of conditions there. It would ultimately prove more costly and prolong our stay in Afghanistan, because we would never be able to generate the conditions needed to train Afghan security forces and give them the space to take over.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Finally, there are those who oppose identifying a time frame for our transition to Afghan responsibility. Indeed, some call for a more dramatic and open-ended escalation of our war effort -- one that would commit us to a nation-building project of up to a decade. I reject this course because it sets goals that are beyond what can be achieved at a reasonable cost, and what we need to achieve to secure our interests. Furthermore, the absence of a time frame for transition would deny us any sense of urgency in working with the Afghan government. It must be clear that Afghans will have to take responsibility for their security, and that America has no interest in fighting an endless war in Afghanistan.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司







As President, I refuse to set goals that go beyond our responsibility, our means, or our interests. And I must weigh all of the challenges that our nation faces. I don't have the luxury of committing to just one. Indeed, I'm mindful of the words of President Eisenhower, who -- in discussing our national security -- said, "Each proposal must be weighed in the light of a broader consideration: the need to maintain balance in and among national programs."vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司


Over the past several years, we have lost that balance. We've failed to appreciate the connection between our national security and our economy. In the wake of an economic crisis, too many of our neighbors and friends are out of work and struggle to pay the bills. Too many Americans are worried about the future facing our children. Meanwhile, competition within the global economy has grown more fierce. So we can't simply afford to ignore the price of these wars.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

All told, by the time I took office the cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan approached a trillion dollars. Going forward, I am committed to addressing these costs openly and honestly. Our new approach in Afghanistan is likely to cost us roughly $30 billion for the military this year, and I'll work closely with Congress to address these costs as we work to bring down our deficit.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

But as we end the war in Iraq and transition to Afghan responsibility, we must rebuild our strength here at home. Our prosperity provides a foundation for our power. It pays for our military. It underwrites our diplomacy. It taps the potential of our people, and allows investment in new industry. And it will allow us to compete in this century as successfully as we did in the last. That's why our troop commitment in Afghanistan cannot be open-ended -- because the nation that I'm most interested in building is our own.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Now, let me be clear: None of this will be easy. The struggle against violent extremism will not be finished quickly, and it extends well beyond Afghanistan and Pakistan. It will be an enduring test of our free society, and our leadership in the world. And unlike the great power conflicts and clear lines of division that defined the 20th century, our effort will involve disorderly regions, failed states, diffuse enemies.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

So as a result, America will have to show our strength in the way that we end wars and prevent conflict -- not just how we wage wars. We'll have to be nimble and precise in our use of military power. Where al Qaeda and its allies attempt to establish a foothold -- whether in Somalia or Yemen or elsewhere -- they must be confronted by growing pressure and strong partnerships.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

<iframe allowfullscreen="true" allowtransparency="true" data-google-container-id="a!7" data-google-query-id="CIPkpsrXn-0CFRkmlgodl_QKew" data-load-complete="true" frameborder="0" height="280" hspace="0" id="aswift_7" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" name="aswift_7" scrolling="no" src="!7&btvi=4&xpc=Em9kY8H4rb&p=https%3A//" vspace="0" width="626"></iframe>

And we can't count on military might alone. We have to invest in our homeland security, because we can't capture or kill every violent extremist abroad. We have to improve and better coordinate our intelligence, so that we stay one step ahead of shadowy networks.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

We will have to take away the tools of mass destruction. And that's why I've made it a central pillar of my foreign policy to secure loose nuclear materials from terrorists, to stop the spread of nuclear weapons, and to pursue the goal of a world without them -- because every nation must understand that true security will never come from an endless race for ever more destructive weapons; true security will come for those who reject them.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

We'll have to use diplomacy, because no one nation can meet the challenges of an interconnected world acting alone. I've spent this year renewing our alliances and forging new partnerships. And we have forged a new beginning between America and the Muslim world -- one that recognizes our mutual interest in breaking a cycle of conflict, and that promises a future in which those who kill innocents are isolated by those who stand up for peace and prosperity and human dignity.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

And finally, we must draw on the strength of our values -- for the challenges that we face may have changed, but the things that we believe in must not. That's why we must promote our values by living them at home -- which is why I have prohibited torture and will close the prison at Guantanamo Bay. And we must make it clear to every man, woman and child around the world who lives under the dark cloud of tyranny that America will speak out on behalf of their human rights, and tend to the light of freedom and justice and opportunity and respect for the dignity of all peoples. That is who we are. That is the source, the moral source, of America's authority.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司
Since the days of Franklin Roosevelt, and the service and sacrifice of our grandparents and great-grandparents, our country has borne a special burden in global affairs. We have spilled American blood in many countries on multiple continents. We have spent our revenue to help others rebuild from rubble and develop their own economies. We have joined with others to develop an architecture of institutions -- from the United Nations to NATO to the World Bank -- that provide for the common security and prosperity of human beings.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

We have not always been thanked for these efforts, and we have at times made mistakes. But more than any other nation, the United States of America has underwritten global security for over six decades -- a time that, for all its problems, has seen walls come down, and markets open, and billions lifted from poverty, unparalleled scientific progress and advancing frontiers of human liberty.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

For unlike the great powers of old, we have not sought world domination. Our union was founded in resistance to oppression. We do not seek to occupy other nations. We will not claim another nation's resources or target other peoples because their faith or ethnicity is different from ours. What we have fought for -- what we continue to fight for -- is a better future for our children and grandchildren. And we believe that their lives will be better if other peoples' children and grandchildren can live in freedom and access opportunity. (Applause.)vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

As a country, we're not as young -- and perhaps not as innocent -- as we were when Roosevelt was President. Yet we are still heirs to a noble struggle for freedom. And now we must summon all of our might and moral suasion to meet the challenges of a new age.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

In the end, our security and leadership does not come solely from the strength of our arms. It derives from our people -- from the workers and businesses who will rebuild our economy; from the entrepreneurs and researchers who will pioneer new industries; from the teachers that will educate our children, and the service of those who work in our communities at home; from the diplomats and Peace Corps volunteers who spread hope abroad; and from the men and women in uniform who are part of an unbroken line of sacrifice that has made government of the people, by the people, and for the people a reality on this Earth. (Applause.) vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司
This vast and diverse citizenry will not always agree on every issue -- nor should we. But I also know that we, as a country, cannot sustain our leadership, nor navigate the momentous challenges of our time, if we allow ourselves to be split asunder by the same rancor and cynicism and partisanship that has in recent times poisoned our national discourse.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

It's easy to forget that when this war began, we were united -- bound together by the fresh memory of a horrific attack, and by the determination to defend our homeland and the values we hold dear. I refuse to accept the notion that we cannot summon that unity again. (Applause.) I believe with every fiber of my being that we -- as Americans -- can still come together behind a common purpose. For our values are not simply words written into parchment -- they are a creed that calls us together, and that has carried us through the darkest of storms as one nation, as one people.vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

America -- we are passing through a time of great trial. And the message that we send in the midst of these storms must be clear: that our cause is just, our resolve unwavering. We will go forward with the confidence that right makes might, and with the commitment to forge an America that is safer, a world that is more secure, and a future that represents not the deepest of fears but the highest of hopes. (Applause.)vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Thank you. God bless you. May God bless the United States of America. (Applause.) Thank you very much. Thank you. (Applause.)vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司








因此,美国必须以我们结束战争和防范冲突的方式--而不是以我们进行战争的方式--来表现我们的力量。我们在使用军事力量时必须灵活机动、精确无误。不管" 基地"组织及其同伙企图在何处建立据点--无论是在索马里、也门还是其他地方--都必须以不断增强的压力和牢固的伙伴关系予以应对。vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司






从富兰克林.罗斯福(Franklin Roosevelt)时期开始,通过我们的祖父辈及其父辈的奉献与牺牲,我们的国家在全球事务中承担了特殊的重负。美国人在横跨几个大洲的许多国家里洒下了鲜血。我们把我们的收入用于帮助别人在废墟上重建他们的国家和发展他们的经济。我们与其他国家一道建立起一整套机构--包括联合国、北约和世界银行-- 保障了人类的共同安全与繁荣。vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司




归根结底,我们的安全和主导作用不单单来自我们的武力,还来自我们的人民 - 来自将重建我国经济的工人和工商企业;来自将创办新型工业的企业家和研究人员;来自对我们的子女进行教育的教师以及国内为各社区工作的人们提供的服务;来自在国外传播希望的外交人员及和平队(Peace Corps)志愿者;也来自我国的男女军人,他们体现了世世代代勇于牺牲的精神,使民有、民治、民享的政府在我们这个星球上实现。vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司


人们很容易忘记,当这场战争开始时,我们戮力同心--当时人们对恐怖袭击尚记忆犹新,决心保卫我国国土和我们弥足珍贵的价值观的意志使我们同仇敌忾。我不接受我们无法再次弘扬团结精神的说法。我完全相信,我们--作为美国人--仍然能够为一个共同的目标同心协力。因为我们的价值观不仅仅是书写在羊皮纸上的文字 - 而且是召唤我们团结一致,带领我们作为一个国家、一国之民接受最猛烈的暴风雨洗礼的一种信念。vjo长沙翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司
