 2014经典演讲五:奥巴马西点军校致辞(双语)vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Thank you. Thank you so much. Thank you. Thankyou, General Caslen, for that introduction. General Trainor, General Clarke,faculty and staff at West Point, you have been outstanding stewards of thisproud institution and outstanding mentors for the newest officers in the UnitedStates Army。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

美国总统奥巴马:谢谢!非常感谢!谢谢!谢谢卡斯兰将军的介绍!特雷纳将军、克拉克将军、西点军校的教职工们,你们一直以来都是这所令人自豪的学府的优秀管理者,也是美国陆军新晋军官的杰出导师。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

I’d like to acknowledge the Army’s leadership -- General McHugh -- Secretary McHugh, General Odierno,as well as Senator Jack Reed who is here and a proud graduate of West Pointhimself. To the class of 2014, I congratulate you on taking your place on theLong Gray Line。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

我要向陆军领导层表示感谢,包括陆军部长麦克休将军以及参谋长奥迪耶诺将军,同时也要感谢到场的杰克-里德参议员,他是西点军校引以为荣的毕业生之一。2014级的毕业生们,祝贺你们承接了西点军魂的使命。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Among you is the first all-female command team: ErinMauldin and Austen Boroff. In Calla Glavin, you have a Rhodes Scholar, and JoshHerbeck proves that West Point accuracy extends beyond the three point line。(Laughter。)vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

在你们当中,有美国首支女子指挥团队,包括艾琳-墨登和奥斯丁-波洛夫。卡拉-格莱文展现了一位罗兹学者的风采,而乔希-赫贝克则证明了西点的精准度远在三分线之外。(笑声)vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

To the entire class, let me reassure you in these finalhours at West Point, as commander in chief, I hereby absolve all cadets who areon restriction for minor conduct offenses. (Laughter, applause。)Let me just say that nobody ever did that for me when I wasin school.vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

全体学员们,请安心度过你们在西点的最后时光,我以最高统帅的名义在此赦免所有因犯轻罪而关禁闭的学员。(笑声、掌声)容我说一句,我当学生的时候,可从未有人这么做过。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

I know you join me in extending a word of thanks to yourfamilies. Joe DeMoss, whose son James is graduating, spoke for a whole lot ofparents when he wrote me a letter about the sacrifices you’ve made. “Deep inside,” he wrote, “we want to explode with pride atwhat they are committing to do in the service of our country。” Like several graduates, James is a combat veteran, and I would askall of us here today to stand and pay tribute not only to the veterans amongus, but to the more than 2.5 million Americans who have served in Iraq andAfghanistan, as well as their families. (Applause。)It is a particularly useful time for America to reflect onthose who’ve sacrificed so much for our freedom, a fewdays after Memorial Day. You are the first class to graduate since 9/11 who maynot be sent into combat in Iraq or Afghanistan. (Cheers, applause。)vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

我知道,你们和我一样都要向自己的家人表示感谢。乔-狄摩斯是本届毕业生詹姆斯的父亲,他给我来信讲诉你们所作出的牺牲,也道出了许多父母的心声。他写道:“在我们的内心深处,我们为他们立志报效国家而感到无比自豪。”和多位毕业生一样,詹姆斯也是位战场老兵。我请今天在座的各位起立,向我们当中的老兵,也向250多万曾在伊拉克和阿富汗服役的美国人及其家属致敬。(掌声)这是继数天前阵亡将士纪念日后的又一个极有意义的时刻,让美国人民得以回想那些为我们的自由作出巨大牺牲的英雄。你们将是自911恐怖袭击以来,第一届不会被派到伊拉克或阿富汗参战的毕业生。(欢呼声、掌声)vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

When I first spoke at West Point in 2009, we still had morethan 100,000 troops in Iraq. We were preparing to surge in Afghanistan. Ourcounterterrorism efforts were focused on al-Qaida’s coreleadership -- those who had carried out the 9/11 attacks. And our nation wasjust beginning a long climb out of the worst economic crisis since the GreatDepression。Four and a half years later, as you graduate, the landscapehas changed. We have removed our troops from Iraq. We are winding down our warin Afghanistan. Al-Qaida’s leadership on the border region betweenPakistan and Afghanistan has been decimated, and Osama bin Laden is no more。(Cheers, applause。) And through it all, we’ve refocusedour investments in what has always been a key source of American strength: agrowing economy that can provide opportunity for everybody who’s willing to work hard and take responsibility here at home。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

2009年,我首次在西点发表演讲时,我们仍有10万多名士兵驻扎在伊拉克,也正准备增兵阿富汗。而我们的反恐重心则是基地组织的核心头目——正是他们发动了911恐怖袭击。此外,我们的国家正开始一段摆脱大萧条以来最严重经济危机的漫长历程。四年半以后,就在你们毕业之际,情况已发生了转变。我们已从伊拉克撤军,正逐步结束阿富汗的战争。潜伏在巴基斯坦和阿富汗边境地区的基地组织头目已被斩草除根,而奥萨马·本·拉登也早已命丧黄泉。(欢呼声、掌声)在经历了这一切之后,我们又将关注重心调整到美国实力的重要源头上来,这个源头就是不断发展的经济,为每一个愿意努力工作并愿意承担起家国责任的人提供机会。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

In fact, by most measures America has rarely been strongerrelative to the rest of the world. Those who argue otherwise -- who suggestthat America is in decline or has seen its global leadership slip away -- areeither misreading history or engaged in partisan politics。Think about it. Our military has no peer. The odds of adirect threat against us by any nation are low, and do not come close to thedangers we faced during the Cold War. Meanwhile, our economy remains the mostdynamic on Earth, our businesses the most innovative. Each year, we grow moreenergy independent. From Europe to Asia, we are the hub of alliances unrivaledin the history of nations。America continues to attract striving immigrants. Thevalues of our founding inspire leaders in parliaments and new movements inpublic squares around the globe. And when a typhoon hits the Philippines, orschoolgirls are kidnapped in Nigeria, or masked men occupy a building inUkraine, it is America that the world looks to for help. (Applause。) So theUnited States is and remains the one indispensable nation. That has been truefor the century past, and it will be true for the century to come。But the world is changing with accelerating speed. Thispresents opportunity, but also new dangers. We know all too well, after 9/11,just how technology and globalization has put power once reserved for states inthe hands of individuals, raising the capacity of terrorists to do harm。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

事实上,与世界上其他国家相比,美国在很多方面都处于强势地位。有些人持不同观点,他们认为美国正在衰弱或正失去世界的领导地位,这些人不是对历史存在误读,就是陷入了党派政治的泥潭。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

你们想一想,我们的军队天下无敌,任何国家对我们构成直接威胁的几率极小,而且与我们在冷战时期所面临的危险相差甚远。同时,我们的经济活力仍居世界第一,企业的创新性也名列前茅。我们的能源独立性都在逐年增强。从欧洲到亚洲,我们是各国有史以来无人能敌的联盟轴心。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

美国将继续吸纳奋发图强的外国移民[微博]。我们的建国理念激励着各国议会的领导人,也激励着世界各地在公共广场上发起的新运动。当台风袭击菲律宾的时候,当尼日利亚女学生遭到绑架的时候,当蒙面歹徒攻占乌克兰政府大楼的时候,全世界都翘首以待美国的援助之手。(掌声)因此,美国始终是一个无可取代的国家,上个世纪如此,下个世纪亦是如此。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

但是,如今的世界瞬息万变。这为我们带来了机遇,也带来了新的危险。911恐怖袭击事件让我们清楚地认识到,科技和全球化发展是如何让原本由国家掌控的权力落入个人之手,令恐怖分子为非作歹的。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Russia’s aggression towards former Soviet statesunnerves capitals in Europe while China’s economic riseand military reach worries its neighbors。From Brazil to India, rising middle classes compete withus, and governments seek a greater say in global forums. And even as developingnations embrace democracy and market economies, 24-hour news and social mediamakes it impossible to ignore the continuation of sectarian conflicts, failingstates and popular uprisings that might have received only passing notice ageneration ago。It will be your generation’s task torespond to this new world. The question we face, the question each of you willface, is not whether America will lead but how we will lead, not just to secureour peace and prosperity but also extend peace and prosperity around the globe。Now, this question isn’t new. At leastsince George Washington served as commander in chief, there have been those whowarned against foreign entanglements that do not touch directly on our securityor economic well-being。Today, according to self-described realists, conflicts inSyria or Ukraine or the Central African Republic are not ours to solve. And notsurprisingly, after costly wars and continuing challenges here at home, thatview is shared by many Americans。A different view, from interventionists from the left andright, says that we ignore these conflicts at our own peril, that America’s willingness to apply force around the world is the ultimatesafeguard against chaos, and America’s failure to actin the face of Syrian brutality or Russian provocations not only violates ourconscience, but invites escalating aggression in the future。And each side can point to history to support its claims,but I believe neither view fully speaks to the demands of this moment. It isabsolutely true that in the 21st century, American isolationism is not anoption. We don’t have a choice to ignore what happens beyondour borders. If nuclear materials are not secure, that poses a danger toAmerican citizens。As the Syrian civil war spills across borders, the capacityof battle-hardened extremist groups to come after us only increases. Regionalaggression that goes unchecked, whether in southern Ukraine or the South ChinaSea or anywhere else in the world, will ultimately impact our allies, and coulddraw in our military. We can’t ignore what happens beyond ourboundaries。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

不久前,俄罗斯派兵入侵前苏联加盟共和国——乌克兰,这一军事动作牵动欧洲各国神经,与此同时,中国经济崛起及其军事走向则引发邻国担忧。从巴西到印度,新兴中产阶级在与我们展开竞争,此外,各国谋求在国际事务中争取更多话语权。尽管发展中国家拥护民主、认同市场经济,但全天候新闻以及社交媒体报道使得人们无法对接连发生在这些国家的派系冲突、国家衰败与民众暴动等事件视而不见。然而,这些对于上一代人而言,只能引来他们的“侧目”罢了。如何能在新形势下有所作为的重担就要落在你们这一代的肩上了。摆在我们面前的问题,不是美国是否处在领导地位,而是她将如何引领各国;不只是美国能否实现繁荣发展,而是她如何能在全球范围内“播撒”和平与繁荣的“种子”,而这也是你们将来要面对的问题。这个问题并非新鲜。至少,自乔治-华盛顿就任总司令——即美国爆发独立战争以来,就存在一些警告的声音,表示反对美国卷入与本国国家安全或经济福祉无直接关联的外部纷争之中。现在,那些自诩为现实主义者的人认为,美国无需理会发生在叙利亚、乌克兰,以及中非共和国的冲突。的确,在经受了战争以及来自国内的多重挑战之后,这种观点为许多美国人所认同,这并不意外。然而,干涉主义者对此持不同观点。他们认为,无视这些冲突最终会危及我们自身,美国在全球充当“世界警察”角色的意愿能 够最彻底地保卫世界安全,使其免于陷入混乱。而若美国对叙利亚的暴乱或俄罗斯的挑衅撒手不管、无所作为的话,那么这不仅违背我们的良心,也会使得这些行径在未来愈演愈烈。尽管双方的观点从历史角度看都成立,但我认为他们并没有充分反映当前形势下的需求。显然,对21世纪的美国而言,孤 立主义行不通。我们无法对发生在世界其他地区的事情漠然视之。例如,如果核燃料不安全,那么它就会威及美国人民的生命。随着叙利亚内战战火跨越边境,受战争洗礼的极端组织攻击美国的能力也在增强。地区冲突接踵而至,无论是在乌克兰南部地区、南海亦或是世界其他地方,如果我们对此坐视不管,最终这将危及美国盟友的利益,美军也会卷入其中。因此,我们必须时刻关注外界事态。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

And beyond these narrow rationales, I believe we have areal stake -- abiding self-interest -- in making sure our children and ourgrandchildren grow up in a world where schoolgirls are not kidnapped; whereindividuals aren’t slaughtered because of tribeor faith or political belief。I believe that a world of greater freedom and tolerance isnot only a moral imperative; it also helps keep us safe。But to say that we have an interest in pursuing peace andfreedom beyond our borders is not to say that every problem has a militarysolution. Since World War II, some of our most costly mistakes came not fromour restraint but from our willingness to rush into military adventures withoutthinking through the consequences, without building international support andlegitimacy for our action, without leveling with the American people about thesacrifices required. Tough talk often draws headlines, but war rarely conformsto slogans. As General Eisenhower, someone with hard-earned knowledge on thissubject, said at this ceremony in 1947, “War is mankind’s most tragic and stupid folly; to seek or advise its deliberateprovocation is a black crime against all men。”Like Eisenhower, this generation of men and women inuniform know all too well the wages of war, and that includes those of you hereat West Point. Four of the service members who stood in the audience when Iannounced the surge of our forces in Afghanistan gave their lives in thateffort. A lot more were wounded。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

此外,跳出这些狭隘的理论框架来看,我认为大家还存在着一个真正的共同关切——持久的个人利益,那就是要始终确保我们的子孙后代成长在这样一个世界当中,在那里,人们不会因为种族、信仰或政治理念的迥异而劫持女学生或滥杀无辜。我认为,建设一个更加自由及包容的世界不仅在道德上势在必行,而且有助于维护我们自身安全。尽管我们有意向在全球倡导和平与自由,但这并不意味着我们要借助军事手段来解决每个问题。二战结束以来,我们所犯的那些严重的错误,皆源自我们倾向于以诉诸武力的方式来解决问题,而对后果考虑不周、缺乏国际支持及法律支持,也没有向美国人民交代他们需要作出的牺牲,以使他们心中有数。虽然强硬的表态时常占据报纸头条,但战争却很少与口号“步调一致”。正如对这个问题深有体会的艾森豪威尔将军(General Eisenhower),于1947年在西点军校毕业典礼上所说的那样:“战争是人类最悲惨、最愚笨的蠢行,无论是蓄意挑起战争,还是为其献计献策,这都是对全人类犯下的滔天罪行。”与他一样,这一代的军人——无论男女,都对战争理解深刻。这其中也包括了你们西点毕业生。在我宣布增兵阿富汗时,听众当中的4名服役人员后来就在那里壮烈牺牲。此外,还有许多西点士兵受伤。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

I believe America’s security demandedthose deployments. But I am haunted by those deaths. I am haunted by thosewounds. And I would betray my duty to you, and to the country we love, if Isent you into harm’s way simply becauseI saw a problem somewhere in the world that needed to be fixed, or because Iwas worried about critics who think military intervention is the only way forAmerica to avoid looking weak。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

我认为,出于维护美国国家安全的考虑,这些军事部署是很有必要的。但是,这些伤亡者的英魂和伤痛一直萦绕在我的脑海、令我难安。如果我将你们派上战场,仅仅是因为世界某地出现问题需要处理,或是担心批评家会将军事不作为视作是美国软弱的表现,那么,我就违背了自己对你们、对这个我们所爱国家的职责了。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Here’s my bottom line: America must alwayslead on the world stage. If we don’t, no one else will.The military that you have joined is, and always will be, the backbone of thatleadership. But U.S. military action cannot be the only -- or even primary --component of our leadership in every instance. Just because we have the best hammerdoes not mean that every problem is a nail。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

我的底线是:美国必须在世界范围保持领导力。如果我们不能,没人能。你们所加入的美军,永远都是美国领导世界的中坚力量。但是美国的军事行动不是我们展现领导力的唯一方式,更不是主要部分。因为虽然我们有最好的锤子(美军),但并不意味着每个问题都是钉子。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

And because the costsassociated with military action are so high, you should expect every civilianleader -- and especially your commander in chief -- to be clear about how thatawesome power should be used. So let me spend the rest of mytime describing my vision for how the United States of America, and ourmilitary, should lead in the years to come, for you will be part of thatleadership。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

因为军事行动代价极大,所以你们应该期望每个平民领袖——尤其是你们的总司令——清楚如何使用这一令人生畏的力量。所以,让我用剩下的时间来描述一下我的想法:关于美国和美军在未来几年应怎样领导世界,而你们将会成为领导世界力量的一部分。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

First, let me repeat a principle I put forward at theoutset of my presidency: The United States will use military force,unilaterally if necessary, when our core interests demand it -- when our peopleare threatened; when our livelihoods are at stake; when the security of ourallies is in danger。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

首先,让我重申一下我在就任总统时提出的原则:当我们的核心利益需要的时候——我们的人民受到威胁、生计受到威胁、盟友的安全处于危险之中——如果有必要,美国将单方面使用军事力量。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

In these circumstances, we still need to ask toughquestions about whether our actions are proportional and effective and just.International opinion matters, but America should never ask permission toprotect our people, our homeland or our way of life. (Applause。)vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

当然在这些情况下,我们仍然需要扪心自问,我们的行动是否合适有效公正。虽然国际舆论很重要,但是在保护我们的人民、祖国和生活方式这些问题上,美国不需要得到别人的许可。(掌声)vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

On the other hand, when issues of global concern do notpose a direct threat to the United States, when such issues are at stake, whencrises arise that stir our conscience or push the world in a more dangerousdirection but do not directly threaten us, then the threshold for militaryaction must be higher. In such circumstances, we should not go it alone.Instead, we must mobilize allies and partners to take collective action. Wehave to broaden our tools to include diplomacy and development, sanctions and isolation, appeals to international law, and, if just,necessary and effective, multilateral military action. In such circumstances,we have to work with others because collective action in thesecircumstances is more likely to succeed, more likely to be sustained,less likely to lead to costly mistakes。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

另一方面,当引起世界关注但没有直接威胁到美国利益的危机产生时,当这些问题亟待解决时,当能触动我们的良心或推动世界向更危险的方向发展但不对美国构成直接威胁的危机出现时,我们更不能轻易采取军事行动。在这种情况下,我们不应该单打独斗。相反,我们必须动员盟友和合作伙伴采取集体行动。我们应该广泛使用各种手段,包括外交和发展、制裁和孤立、诉诸于国际法,甚至在必要情况下采取多边军事行动。在这些情况下,我们必须与其他国家合作,因为集体行动更容易成功,持续性强,还可以减少代价惨痛的错误。”vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

This leads to my second point. For the foreseeable future,the most direct threat to America, at home and abroad, remains terrorism, but astrategy that involves invading every country that harbors terrorist networksis naive and unsustainable. I believe we must shift our counterterrorismstrategy, drawing on the successes and shortcomings of our experience in Iraqand Afghanistan, to more effectively partner with countries where terroristnetworks seek a foothold。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

这引出了我的第二个观点。在可预见的未来,不管国内还是国外,对美国最直接的威胁仍是恐怖主义。但是,那种对每个包庇恐怖主义组织的国家都采取进攻手段的战略未免过于天真,也不可能长期进行。我认为,我们必须从伊拉克和阿富汗问题上汲取经验和教训,将美国打击恐怖主义的战略转变为与那些国内有恐怖组织基地的国家进行有效的伙伴合作。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

And the need for a new strategy reflects the fact thattoday’s principal threat no longer comes from acentralized al-Qaida leadership. Instead it comes from decentralized al-Qaidaaffiliates and extremists, many with agendas focused in the countries wherethey operate. And this lessens the possibility of large-scale 9/11-styleattacks against the homeland, but it heightens the danger of U.S. personneloverseas being attacked, as we saw in Benghazi. It heightens the danger to lessdefensible targets, as we saw in a shopping mall in Nairobi. So we have todevelop a strategy that matches this diffuse threat, one that expands our reachwithout sending forces that stretch our military too thin or stir up localresentments。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

并且,对新战略的需求反映出一个事实:今天我们主要的威胁不再是来自于基地组织的集中领导,而是来自分散的 “基地”组织分支机构和极端分子,其中很多都在他们从事活动的国家内进行活动。虽然这种情况降低了美国本土遭受大规模911式袭击的可能性,但是就像我们 在班加西(Benghazi)看到的那样,这会增加美国海外人员遇险的可能性。就像我们在内罗毕(Nairobi)购物商场看到的那样,这还会增加防备薄 弱目标遇险的可能性。因此,我们需要制定战略应对这种传播式的威胁,这一战略必须能够在不派遣军队、避免战线过长、避免引发当地不满情绪的前提下扩大我们的影响力。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

We need partners to fight terrorists alongside us. Andempowering partners is a large part of what we have done and what we arecurrently doing in Afghanistan. Together with our allies, America struck hugeblows against al-Qaida core and pushed back against an insurgency thatthreatened to overrun the country。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

我们需要合作伙伴一起打击恐怖分子。我们在阿富汗已经完成和正在进行的工作,很大一部份是为了增进伙伴的自治能力。在 与盟友的共同努力下,美国给基地组织核心造成了沉重的打击,挫败了其试图颠覆国家的叛乱活动。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

But sustaining this progress depends on the ability ofAfghans to do the job. And that’s why we trained hundreds of thousands ofAfghan soldiers and police. Earlier this spring, those forces -- those Afghanforces -- secured an election in which Afghans voted for the first democratictransfer of power in their history. And at the end of this year, a new Afghanpresident will be in office, and America’s combatmission will be over。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

但是,决定这个进程能否持续下去的是阿富汗人民在处理这一问题上的能力。这就是我们训练成千上万的阿富汗士兵和警察的原因。今年春天早些时候,这些部队,这些阿富汗部队保障了选举的进行,阿富汗人为该国史上第一次政权的民主移交进行了投票。今年年底,阿富汗新总统将上任,届时美国作战部队的使命也将完成。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Now -- (applause) -- that was anenormous achievement made because of America’s armedforces. But as we move to a train and advise mission in Afghanistan, ourreduced presence there allows us to more effectively address emerging threatsin the Middle East and North Africa. So earlier this year I asked my nationalsecurity team to develop a plan for a network of partnerships from South Asiato the Sahel。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

现在——(掌声)——这就是美军取得的巨大成就。但是当我们在阿富汗的使命转向训练和顾问时,我们减少驻军以后可以更有效地应对中东和北非新出现的威胁。因此在今年早些时候,我让国家安全事务部门就南亚和萨赫勒地区的合作伙伴关系网制定了一个计划。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Today, as part of this effort, I am calling on Congress tosupport a new counterterrorism partnerships fund of up to $5 billion, whichwill allow us to train, build capacity and facilitate partner countries on thefront lines. And these resources will give us flexibility to fulfill differentmissions, including training security forces in Yemen who’ve gone on the offensive against al-Qaida, supporting amultinational force to keep the peace in Somalia, working with European alliesto train a functioning security force and border patrol in Libya andfacilitating French operations in Mali。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

今天,作为我们行动的一部分,我呼吁国会支持通过数额为50亿美元的新反恐合作基金,以帮助我们的同盟伙伴训练军队、提升能力、支援他们的前线。这些资金也让我们又更大的自由度完成各项任务。这些任务包括:为打击基地组织的也门政府训练安全部队以支持多国部队维护索马里地区和平,同欧洲盟友一起在利比亚训练出合格的安全部队和边防军,以及协助法国在马里的行动。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

A critical focus of this effort will be the ongoing crisisin Syria. As frustrating as it is, there are no easy answers there, no militarysolution that can eliminate the terrible suffering anytime soon. As president,I made a decision that we should not put American troops into the middle ofthis increasingly sectarian civil war, and I believe that is the rightdecision. But that does not mean we shouldn’t help theSyrian people stand up against a dictator who bombs and starves his own people.And in helping those who fight for the right of all Syrians to choose their ownfuture, we are also pushing back against the growing number of extremists whofind safe haven in the chaos。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

我们努力的重中之重是叙利亚危机。令人沮丧的是,解决这一危机没有捷径。军事行动不能立马消除当地人民的深重灾难。作为总统,我决定不派遣军队卷入这场愈演愈烈的宗派内战。我相信这是一个正确的决定。但是这并不意味着我们不去帮助叙利亚人民奋起反抗,反对杀害自己人民、让人民挨饿的独裁者。我们协助那些为了叙利亚人民能选择自己未来而奋斗的人,同时也积极打击在越来越多混乱之中找到避风港的极端分子。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

So with the additional resources I’m announcing today, we will step up our efforts to support Syria’s neighbors -- Jordan and Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq -- as theycontend with refugees and confront terrorists working across Syria’s borders. I will work with Congress to ramp up support for those inthe Syrian opposition who offer the best alternative to terrorists and brutaldictators. And we will continue to coordinate with our friends and allies inEurope and the Arab World to push for a political resolution of this crisis andto make sure that those countries and not just the United States arecontributing their fair share of support to the Syrian people。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

有了今天我所宣布的资金,我们将会加大力度,支持约旦、黎巴嫩、土耳其、伊拉克这些叙利亚的邻国。因为他们得处理叙利亚边境的难民、并打击叙边境的恐怖活动。我将与国会一起,加大对叙利亚反对派的支持。他们是替代恐怖分子和残忍的独裁者管理叙利亚最好的选择。我们会继续与我们的朋友、欧洲盟友和阿拉伯世界一起合作,推进叙利亚危机的政治解决途径,以保证在支持叙利亚人民的努力中,并非仅有美国在做出努力,其他这些国家也都参与其中。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Let me make one final point about our efforts againstterrorism. The partnerships I’ve described do not eliminate the need totake direct action when necessary to protect ourselves. When we have actionableintelligence, that’s what we do, through captureoperations, like the one that brought a terrorist involved in the plot to bombour embassies in 1998 to face justice, or drone strikes, like those we’ve carried out in Yemen and Somalia。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

让我就我们在反恐上的努力最后说一点。我所描述的伙伴关系并不排除为了保护美国而采取直接行动的可能。只要我们有可靠的情报,我们就会采取行动,比如1998年在我们大使馆抓捕策划安放炸弹的恐怖分子的行动,又如我们在也门和索马里采取的无人机袭击。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

There are times when those actions are necessary and wecannot hesitate to protect our people. But as I said last year, in taking directaction, we must uphold standards that reflect our values. That means takingstrikes only when we face a continuing, imminent threat, and only where thereis no certainty -- there is near certainty of no civilian casualties, for ouractions should meet a simple test: We must not create more enemies than we takeoff the battlefield。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

有时我们必须马上采取行动,因为我们在保护国民方面决不能有半点犹豫。但就像我去年说的,采取直接行动时,我们也要坚守我们的价值观。这就意味着只有我们面临持续的或是眼前的威胁才会进行打击。在没有把握的时候,即便我们几乎能避免平民伤亡,我们的行动也必须达到一个简单的标准,那就是我们不能为了在战场上击毙敌人而树立更多的敌人。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

I also believe we must be more transparent about both thebasis of our counterterrorism actions and the manner in which they are carriedout. We have to be able to explain them publicly, whether it is drone strikesor training partners. I will increasingly turn to our military to take the leadand provide information to the public about our efforts. Our intelligencecommunity has done outstanding work and we have to continue to protect sourcesand methods, but when we cannot explain our efforts clearly and publicly, we faceterrorist propaganda and international suspicion, we erode legitimacy with ourpartners and our people, and we reduce accountability in our own government。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

我也相信我们必须在反恐行动的出发点和具体行动方式方面更为公开。不管是无人机打击或是训练盟友的军队,我们必 须向公众解释我们的行动。我将会要求美军带头,向公众提供与我们行动相关的信息。我们的情报机构工作出色,我们必须继续保护我们的信息来源和获取途径。但如果我们不能清楚、公开地解释我们的行动,我们就会面对恐怖分子的大肆宣传和国际社会的质疑,就会在我们伙伴国和人民面前失去合法性,就会失去我们政府的 信誉。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

And this issue of transparency is directly relevant to athird aspect of American leadership, and that is our effort to strengthen andenforce international order。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

公开透明直接与美国领导地位的第三个方面相关,也就是我们强化国际秩序的努力。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

After World War II, America had the wisdom to shapeinstitutions to keep the peace and support human progress -- from NATO and theUnited Nations, to the World Bank and IMF. These institutions are not perfect,but they have been a force multiplier. They reduce the need for unilateralAmerican action and increase restraint among other nations。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

二战之后,美国高瞻远瞩,设立了从北约、联合国到世界银行、国际货币组织一系列机构来维护人类和平、支持人类进步。这 些机构并不完美,但是他们将我们的力量放大了数倍。他们减少美国进行单边行动的需要,同时也增强了其他国家之间的制约能力。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Now, just as the world has changed, this architecture mustchange as well. At the height of the Cold War, President Kennedy spoke aboutthe need for a peace based upon a gradual evolution in human institutions. Andevolving these international institutions to meet the demands of today must bea critical part of American leadership。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

现在,世界已经历巨变,这一框架也需改变。冷战时,肯尼迪总统曾谈到对于以人类机构逐渐改善为基础的和平的需要。对这些机构进行改进以达到今天的需求,是美国领导地位的重要一环。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Now, there are a lot of folks, a lot of skeptics who oftendownplay the effectiveness of multilateral action. For them, working throughinternational institutions, like the U.N. or respecting international law, is asign of weakness. I think they’re wrong. Let me offer just two exampleswhy。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

现在有许多人,也有许多质疑者经常贬低多边行动的有效性。对于他们而言,通过联合国这类的多边机构进行合作或者是尊重多边规则,是一种懦弱的表现。我认为他们错了。让我举两个例子来加以说明吧。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

In Ukraine, Russia’s recent actionsrecall the days when Soviet tanks rolled into Eastern Europe. But this isn’t the Cold War. Our ability to shape world opinion helpedisolate Russia right away. Because of Americanleadership, the world immediately condemned Russian actions, Europe and the G-7joined with us to impose sanctions, NATO reinforced our commitment to EasternEuropean allies, the IMF is helping to stabilize Ukraine’s economy, OSCE monitors brought the eyes of the world to unstableparts of Ukraine。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

俄罗斯最近在乌克兰的举动令我想起了苏联大批坦克开进东欧的情形。但是现在不是冷战时期。我们制造的国际舆论让俄罗斯在短时间内就被孤立。在美国的领导下,国际社会马上谴责俄罗斯的举动,欧洲和七国集团同我们一样对其实施制裁,北大西洋公约组织恪守我们对东盟的承诺,国际货币基金组织正在帮助稳定乌克兰的经济,欧洲安全和合作组织也在关注乌克兰不稳定地区的发展。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

And this mobilization of world opinion and internationalinstitutions served as a counterweight to Russian propaganda and Russian troopson the border and armed militias in ski masks。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

世界观点和国际机构立场的转变,可与俄罗斯的宣传、其边境的军队以及全副武装的士兵相抗衡。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

This weekend, Ukrainians voted by the millions. Yesterday,I spoke to their next president. We don’t know how thesituation will play out, and there will remain grave challenges ahead, butstanding with our allies on behalf of international order, working withinternational institutions, has given a chance for the Ukrainian people tochoose their future -- without us firing a shot。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

这周末,数百万的乌克兰公民会进行民主投票。昨天,我同他们下一届的总统进行了会谈。我们不知道情况会如何演变,前方也仍存在巨大的挑战,但是为了维护国际秩序,同我们的盟友一起,与国际组织进行合作,这给了乌克兰人民一个选择他们未来的机会一一这并不需要费一枪一弹。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Similarly, despite frequent warnings from the United Statesand Israel and others, the Iranian nuclear program steadily advanced for years.But at the beginning of my presidency, we built a coalition that imposedsanctions on the Iranian economy, while extending the hand of diplomacy to theIranian government. And now we have an opportunity to resolve our differencespeacefully. The odds of success are still long, and we reserve all options toprevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. But for the first time in adecade, we have a very real chance of achieving a breakthrough agreement, onethat is more effective and durable than what we could have achieved through theuse of force. And throughout these negotiations, it has been our willingness towork through multilateral channels that kept the world on our side。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

类似的是,尽管美国、以色列及其他国家不断地对伊朗发出警告,伊朗核计划仍持续进行了好几年。在我担任总统职务初期,我们联合对伊朗的经济实行了制裁,但同时也帮助伊朗政府进行民主建设。现在我们有机会和平地解决我们的分歧。成功之路还十分漫长,我们要保留阻止伊朗获得核武器的各种手段。十年来我们第一次真正有机会达成一项突破性的协定,这比我们用武力达成协定来得更有效,效果也更持久。通过这些磋商,我们愿意通过多边途径让世界各国站在我们这一边。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

The point is, this is American leadership. This is Americanstrength。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

重点是,这是在美国的领导下进行的。这是美国力量所在。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

In each case, we built coalitions to respond to a specificchallenge. Now we need to do more to strengthen the institutions that cananticipate and prevent problems from spreading。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

对于不同的事件,我们会建立不同的联盟以应对不同的挑战。现在我们需要做更多来加强这些机构预测和预防问题扩散的能力。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

For example, NATO is the strongest alliance the world hasever known but we’re now working with NATO allies to meetnew missions both within Europe, where our eastern allies must be reassured,but also beyond Europe’s borders, where our NATO alliesmust pull their weight to counterterrorism and respond to failed states andtrain a network of partners。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

比如,众所周知,北大西洋公约组织是世界上最强大的联盟之一,但是我们现在同它进行合作,以应对其在欧洲内部和其他 地区的新任务。在欧洲内部,我们的东部盟国必须获得保护。而在其他地区,我们北大西洋公约组织的盟国也必须有效地进行反恐活动,帮助失利的国家并培养我们的伙伴国。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Likewise, the U.N. provides a platform to keep the peace instates torn apart by conflict. Now, we need to make sure that those nations whoprovide peacekeepers have the training and equipment to actually keep the peaceso that we can prevent the type of killing we’ve seen in Congo and Sudan. We are going to deepen ourinvestment in countries that support these peacekeeping missions becausehaving other nations maintain order in their own neighborhoods lessens the needfor us to put our own troops in harm’s way. It’s a smart investment. It’s the right way tolead. (Applause。)vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

同样地,联合国提供了一个平台,以维护那些因冲突而分裂的国家的和平。现在,我们需要确保那些提供了维和人员的 国家已接受了训练,配齐了装备,能够真正维护和平,这样我们就能防止我们在刚果和苏丹看到的那种杀戮。我们会加大对这些支持维和行动国家的投资。因为令其他国家用自己的力量维持自己地盘的秩序,可以减少我们使用武力造成伤害的必要性。这是智慧的投资。这也是我们正确的领导之路。(掌声雷动)vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Keep in mind, not all international norms relate directlyto armed conflict. We have a serious problem with cyberattacks, which is why we’re working to shape and enforce rules of the road to secure ournetworks and our citizens. In the Asia Pacific, we’resupporting Southeast Asian nations as they negotiate a code of conduct withChina on maritime disputes in the South China Sea, and we’re working to resolve these disputes through international law。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

但是要记住,不是所有的国际准则都与军事冲突直接相关。我们面临着网络黑客攻击问题,这也是我们致力于实施和加强在网络中的行为准则,以保护我们的互联网和我们的公民的原因。在亚太地区,我们支持东南亚国家同中国协商在中国南海海事纠纷中的行为准则,同时我们也支持通过国际法解 决这些纠纷。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

That spirit of cooperation needs to energize the globaleffort to combat climate change, a creeping national security crisis that willhelp shape your time in uniform, as we are called on to respond to refugeeflows and natural disasters, and conflicts over water and food, which is why,next year, I intend to make sure America is out front in putting together aglobal framework to preserve our planet。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

我们需要用合作的精神激励全球努力应对气候变化,这是一个日益严重的国家安全危机,决定你们从军期间的整体形势。我们要 应对难民流动、自然灾害,水资源和食物的问题。这也是我下一年计划确保美国能够带头建立一个保护我们星球的全球框架的原因。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

You see, American influence is always stronger when we leadby example. We cannot exempt ourselves from the rules that apply to everyone else.We can’t call on others to make commitments to combatclimate change if a whole lot of our political leaders deny that it is takingplace. We can’t try to resolve problems in the SouthChina Sea when we have refused to make sure that the Law of the Sea Conventionis ratified by the United States Senate, despite the fact that our top militaryleaders say the treaty advances our national security. That’s not leadership. That’s retreat. That’s not strength; that’s weakness. It would beutterly foreign to leaders like Roosevelt and Truman, Eisenhower and Kennedy。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

大家知道,但凡美国以身说法,实现领导,美国的影响力就会加大。大家都普遍遵循的规则,我们不能不遵守;如果我们多数 领导人否认气候变化这一事实,我们也就无法号召大家齐心协力,共对气候变化。虽然我国军方高层领导人都认为《海洋法公约》的通过会提高我国的国家安全,但如果我们无法确保美国参议院通过该公约,我们也就无法解决中国南海问题。这都不是领导,是退缩;不是强大,是软弱。这与罗斯福,杜鲁门,艾森豪威尔,肯尼 迪等领导人的风格截然相反。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

I believe in American exceptionalism with every fiber of mybeing. But what makes us exceptional is not our ability to flout internationalnorms and the rule of law; it is our willingness to affirm them through ouractions。(Applause。)vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

我对美国例外主义深信不疑。但让我们例外的并不是美国通过实际行动重申国际准则与国际法,而是我们愿意通过实际行动彰显这些国际准则。(掌声)vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

And that’s why I will continue to push toclose Gitmo, because American values and legal traditions do not permitthe indefinite detention of people beyond our borders. (Applause。) That’s why we’re putting in place newrestrictions on how America collects and uses intelligence -- because we willhave fewer partners and be less effective if a perception takes hold that we’re conducting surveillance against ordinary citizens. (Applause。)America does not simply stand for stability or the absence of conflict, nomatter what the cost; we stand for the more lasting peace that can only comethrough opportunity and freedom for people everywhere -- which brings me to thefourth and final element of American leadership: our willingness to act onbehalf of human dignity。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

这是我坚持推进关闭关塔那摩监狱的原因,美国价值观与法律传统不容许在美国境外无限期关押人员。(掌声)这是我们近来限制美国情报收集与使用方式的原因,如果美国一意孤行,继续监控普通民众的话,美国的合作伙伴势必会减少,效率势必会更为低下。(掌声)美国并不支持不惜任何代价维护稳定或消除冲突;我们支持拥护唯有机遇与自由可以为世界各国人民带来的更为持久的和平。这是我要谈的美国领导力量的第四个、也是最后一个要素,那就是我们愿为人类尊严而努力奋斗。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

America’s support for democracy and human rightsgoes beyond idealism; it is a matter of national security. Democracies are ourclosest friends and are far less likely to go to war. Economies based on freeand open markets perform better and becomemarkets for our goods. Respect for human rights is an antidote to instabilityand the grievances that fuel violence and terror。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

美国对民主与人权的主张胜过对理想主义的追求;这是关乎国家安全的大计。民主国家是美国最亲密的盟友,民主国家绝不可能走向战争。基于自由开放的经济体发挥着更加积极的作用,也逐渐成为我国产品的目的市场。尊重人权有利于改善动荡局势,缓和不满情绪,遏制暴力及恐怖的滋生。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

A new century has brought no end to tyranny. In capitalsaround the globe -- including, unfortunately, some of America’s partners -- there has been a crackdown on civil society. Thecancer of corruption has enriched too many governments and their cronies andenraged citizens from remote villages to iconic squares。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

新世纪早已到来,暴政却还未终结。不幸地,在一些国家,包括美国的伙伴国家在内,镇压依然存在于公民社会中。腐败的毒瘤养富了政府官员及其裙带密友,但也激怒了全国各地的普通民众。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

And watching these trends, or the violent upheavals inparts of the Arab world, it’s easy to be cynical. But rememberthat because of America’s efforts -- because of Americandiplomacy and foreign assistance, as well as the sacrifices of our military --more people live under elected governments today than at any time in humanhistory. Technology is empowering civil society in ways that no iron fist cancontrol. New breakthroughs are lifting hundreds of millions of people out ofpoverty. And even the upheaval of the Arab world reflects the rejection of anauthoritarian order that was anything but stable, and now offers the long-termprospect of more responsive and effective governance。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

想想这些现实潮流,想想阿拉伯世界的暴力动乱,我们很容易变得愤世嫉俗。但要记住,是美国的努力奋斗,美国的外交政策,美国的对外援助,还有美国军人的无私奉献,使得更多人在民选政府的管理之下安居乐业,这在历史上无可比拟。科技赋予公民社会更多权利,这也是铁臂金刚所控制不了的。得益于科技新突破,千百万人摆脱贫困。甚至是阿拉伯世界的动乱也反映了人们对动荡独裁秩序的摒弃,也产生了对一个更为有求必应的更有效率政府管理的长期愿景。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

In countries like Egypt, we acknowledge that ourrelationship is anchored in security interests, from peace treaties to Israelto shared efforts against violent extremism. So we have not cut off cooperationwith the new government, but we can and will persistently press for reformsthat the Egyptian people have demanded。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

在埃及这样的国家,我们承认从和平条约到与以色列共同对抗暴力极端主义等安全利益方面,我们的关系停滞不前。我们没有切断与埃及新政府的往来合作,但我们有能力,也会坚持推进埃及人民要求的各项改革措施。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

And meanwhile, look at a country like Myanmar, which only a few years ago was an intractabledictatorship and hostile to the United States. Forty million people. Thanks tothe enormous courage of the people in that country, and because we tookthe diplomatic initiative, American leadership, we haveseen political reforms opening a once- closed society; a movement by Myanmarleadership away from partnership with North Korea in favor of engagement withAmerica and our allies。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

同时,再看看缅甸,仅仅几年前还是顽固独裁之地,还对美国持敌对态度。多亏四千万缅甸人的巨大勇气,多亏美国主动开启的外交之旅,多亏美国领导力量的共同作用,我们看到了可喜的政治变革,看到了一个曾经闭关的社会重新开放;缅甸领导人避与朝鲜合作,为的是实现与美国及美国同盟更好的交流往来。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

We’re now supporting reform and badly needednational reconciliation through assistance and investment, through coaxing and,at times, public criticism. And progress there could be reversed, but ifMyanmar succeeds we will have gained a new partner without having fired a shot-- American leadership。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

现在,通过投资援助、公开批评与感召劝服,我们支持缅甸改革、支持缅甸人民渴望的民族和解。发展进程可能会倒退逆转,如果不费一兵一卒,如果缅甸取得成功,我们也就多了个合作伙伴,这就是美国的领导力量。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

In each of these cases, we should not expect change tohappen overnight. That’s why we form alliances -- not only withgovernments, but also with ordinary people. For unlike other nations, Americais not afraid of individual empowerment. We are strengthened by it. We’re strengthened by civil society. We’restrengthened by a free press. We’re strengthened bystriving entrepreneurs and small businesses. We’restrengthened by educational exchange and opportunity for all people and womenand girls. That’s who we are. That’s what we represent. (Applause。)vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

任何时候我们不能指望改变一蹴而就。所以我们必须结盟,不仅与政府结盟,也与普通民众结成盟友。与其他国家不同,美国从不畏惧个人力量,而是从中汲取能量。公民社会,自由舆论,创业人才,小型企业,教育交流以及针对全社会面向妇女儿童敞开的机会之门无一不是我们的力量之源。这就是美国人,这才是美国梦。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

I saw that through a trip to Africa last year, whereAmerican assistance has made possible the prospect of an AIDS-free generation,while helping Africans care themselves for their sick. We’re helping farmers get their products to market to feed populationsonce endangered by famine. We aim to double access to electricity in sub-Saharan Africa so people are connected to the promise of the global economy.And all this creates new partners and shrinks the space for terrorism andconflict。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

去年的非洲之行让我看到美国向非洲伸出援手,治病救人,使得一代非洲人远离艾滋的愿景成为可能。我们帮助当地农民销售农产品,令倍受饥荒折磨的人们不再挨饿。我们为撒哈拉以南的非洲地区带去光明,让全球经济的累累硕果惠及当地百姓。如此一来,既催生了新的合作伙伴,也捣毁了恐怖主义与暴力冲突的温床。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Now, tragically, no American security operation caneradicate the threat posed by an extremist group like Boko Haram -- the groupthat kidnapped those girls。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

遗憾的是,目前美国安全行动还未能根除由极端组织带来的威胁,例如绑架女童的博科圣地(BokoHaram)。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

And that’s we have to focus not just on rescuing those girls right away, but also onsupporting Nigerian efforts to educate its youth. This should be one of thehard-earned lessons of Iraq and Afghanistan, where our military became thestrongest advocate for diplomacy and development. Theyunderstood that foreign assistance is not an afterthought -- something nice todo apart from our national defense, apart from our national security. It ispart of what makes us strong。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

我们要做的不仅是解救被困女童,还应支持尼日利亚发展青年教育事业。我们在伊拉克与阿富汗的宝贵经验表明美军已成为外交与发展最强劲的倡导者。战士们都明白对外援助并非事后诸葛亮,而是和国防及国土安全一样不可偏废的崇高事业。我们也因此变得强大。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Now, ultimately, global leadership requires us to see theworld as it is, with all its danger and uncertainty. We have to be prepared forthe worst, prepared for every contingency, but American leadership alsorequires us to see the world as it should be -- a place where the aspirationsof individual human beings really matters, where hopes and not just fearsgovern; where the truths written into our founding documents can steer thecurrents of history in the direction of justice. And we cannot do that withoutyou。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

现在,最后我要说引领全球的使命要求我们直视这个充满危险与动荡的世界。除了未雨绸缪,防患于未然,我们别无选择,但这并不妨碍我们勾画未来世界的蓝图——人人心怀希望,凡事不再畏惧,让写入宪章的真理引领我们在通往正义的大道上勇往直前。这一切就看你们的了。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Class of 2014, you have taken this time to prepare on thequiet banks of the Hudson. You leave this place to carry forward a legacy thatno other military in human history can claim. You do so as part of a team thatextends beyond your units or even our Armed Forces, for in the course of yourservice, you will work as a team with diplomats and development experts。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

各位2014届毕业生,过去的你们是哈德逊河畔(西点军校所在地)的学子,而今后离开象牙塔的你们将承载这份荣耀延续美国军队的辉煌。作为部队的一员,每一位履行职责的你们终将汇聚成美国武装部队,因为在这一过程中,你们实际上是在同外交官与发展专家并肩作战。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

You’ll get to know allies and train partners.And you will embody what it means for America to lead the world。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Next week I will go to Normandy to honor the men whostormed the beaches there. And while it’s hard for manyAmericans to comprehend the courage and sense of duty that guided those whoboarded small ships, it’s familiar to you. At WestPoint, you define what it means to be a patriot。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

下周,我将参加诺曼底登陆70周年纪念活动。尽管许多美国人难以对诺曼底号船员的魄力与责任感感同身受,但是你们可以。在西点军校,爱国者的形象由你们来塑造。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Three years ago Gavin White graduated from this academy. Hethen served in Afghanistan. Like the soldiers who came before him, Gavin was ina foreign land, helping people he’d never met,putting himself in harm’s way for the sake of hiscommunity and his family and the folks back home. Gavin lost one of his legs inan attack. I met him last year at Walter Reed. He was wounded but just asdetermined as the day that he arrived here at West Point. And he developed asimple goal. Today his sister Morgan will graduate. And true to his promise,Gavin will be there to stand and exchange salutes with her. (Cheers, applause。)vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

3年前,加文-怀特(GavinWhite)从西点毕业,前往阿富汗服役。和每一位投身阿富汗前线的士兵一样,加文背井离乡,帮助素未谋面的当地人,为了军队,家人和美国人民的利益不辞劳苦。加文在一次战斗中不幸失去一条腿。去年我在沃尔特-里德(Walter Reed)陆军医疗中心见过他。尽管负了伤,他仍然像刚进西点时一样,不忘初心,并且立下另一个志愿。今天,他的妹妹摩根(Morgan)也将从这里毕业。加文终于能够兑现当初的承诺,和妹妹互敬军礼。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

We have been through a long season of war. We have facedtrials that were not foreseen and we’ve seen divisionsabout how to move forward. But there is something in Gavin’s character, there is something in the American character, that willalways triumph。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

我们经历了战争的洗礼,经受过突如其来的考验,开辟出前进的道路。但是有一样东西烙在加文的骨子里,镌刻在美国人与生俱来的品质中,使得我们所向披靡。vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

 vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

Leaving here, you carry with you the respect of your fellowcitizens. You will represent a nation with history and hope on our side. Yourcharge now is not only to protect our country, but to do what is right andjust. As your commander in chief, I know you will. May God bless you. May Godbless our men and women in uniform. And may God bless the United States ofAmerica. (Cheers, applause。)vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司

你们心系祖国人民,离开西点。你们代表的是一个历经风雨,踌躇满志的美国。你们的使命不仅是保家卫国,更是伸张正义。身为最高统帅,我对你们充满信心。愿上帝保佑你们,保佑美国公民,保佑美利坚合众国。(欢呼,掌声)vBs江门翻译公司-忠信乐译翻译有限公司
