🔴Thursday April 15th 2021 🔵2021年4月15日星期四 🔱Espresso - Today’s agenda 每日濃縮 - 今日頭條 🏃‍♂️🇺🇸🏃‍♂️The final withdrawal: America leaves Afghanistan 最終局:美軍撤離阿富汗 President Joe Biden has officially announced that almost all of the remaining 2,500 American troops in Afghanistan will leave by September 11th, the 20th anniversary of the attacks that led to their deployment. Mr Biden, no fan of what he calls America’s “forever wars”, advocated withdrawing most of the country’s troops back in 2009 while still Barack Obama’s vice-president. Instead Mr Obama sent 17,000 more in. Yet the end to America’s presence does not mean an end to conflict for Afghans. Kabul and several other large cities are already under siege by militants, who are unopposed in the countryside. The country risks civil war, and perhaps a Taliban takeover of Kabul. That would be catastrophic. It might yet be resisted, if Mr Biden continues to fund the Afghan state and nudges its government and the Taliban towards a peace deal. But it is a miserable gamble, and even the best outcome is bleak. 美國總統拜登正式宣佈駐紮在阿富汗 (Afghanistan,位在南亞、長期處於戰亂的國家) 剩餘的 2,500名美軍將在今年 9月11日 (即觸發其部署軍事行動的 911 恐攻發生之二十週年時刻) 以前幾乎全數撤離。拜登一直以來不屑於美國所謂的「永恆戰爭 (forever wars)」,而其對撤軍的主張更可以回溯到他擔任歐巴馬時期之副總統的 2009 年,然而歐巴馬卻還是多派了 17,000人進駐 (阿富汗)。不過呢,結束美國在阿國的身影並不意謂著終結了阿富汗人之間的衝突。在目前,(阿富汗) 首都喀布爾 (Kabul) 和其他幾個大城市已經遭到在鄉村沒有反對勢力的武裝份子給圍城。阿國仍有陷入內戰的風險,而塔利班 (Taliban,該地區一伊斯蘭教遜尼派武裝組織) 也或許有可能拿下喀布爾,這 (對全世界來說) 可能是場災難。惟有拜登政府持續資助阿富汗政府,並推動 (阿國) 政府與塔利班雙方的和平協議,那麼事態才有轉圜的餘地。但這將是場痛苦的博弈,最後的結果甚至可能徒勞無功。 ⚜️Daily takeaway⚜️ 每日單字精選 ✅Remaining (adj.): 剩餘的 (形) ✅Deployment (n.): 部署、配置 (名) ✅Advocate (v.): 提倡、主張 (動) ✅Under siege (adj.): 被圍困的、兵臨城下的 (形) ✅Civil war (n.): 內戰 (名) ✅Catastrophic (adj.): 災難性的 (形) ✅Nudge (v.): 輕推、導引 (動) ✅Miserable (adj.): 悲慘的、淒慘的 (形) — ✔︎ 按讚【每日一經濟學人】Facebook 粉專:https://reurl.cc/Lddode ✔︎ 追蹤【每日一經濟學人】Instagram 帳號:https://reurl.cc/Oqqoq3 ✔︎ 訂閱【每日一經濟學人】YouTube 頻道:https://reurl.cc/Y665dX ✔︎ 閱讀【每日一經濟學人】Medium 平台:https://reurl.cc/k00WZr — 🔶如有商業合作或業務需求,請洽:leontheeconomist@gmail.com 🔴如影音內容有誤,歡迎來信勘誤:leontheeconomist@gmail.com
