He leaves a bleak situation at home. America has propped up Afghanistan with money and troops for 20 years. Those forces are now leaving. Their departure has buoyed an already resurgent Taliban, and the militants have captured many rural districts in recent weeks. The despondent Afghan forces that America spent years and billions building appear powerless to stop the advance. Assessments of the government’s chances are getting gloomier. America insists the withdrawal does not signal the end of support. In public, the two leaders will talk up an enduring friendship. America will still fund the government and perhaps provide more arm’s-length military help, such as fixing Afghan aircraft. In private, they are likely to discuss how to revitalise moribund talks with the Taliban. But while the insurgents are on the front foot, they have little desire to parley. 身陷危機之中的阿富汗 (Afghanistan,位於中東) 總統 Ashraf Ghani 今天將於美國首都華府特區 (Washington, DC) 與美國總統拜登碰面。而在他身後的,是一個局面慘澹的阿富汗家園。美國已在軍事與經濟上支持阿富汗 (政府) 長達二十年之久。如今美軍開始撤離,卻也同時壯大了早就蠢蠢欲動的塔利班 (Taliban),而目前這個武裝組織已經控制了許多郊區數週。但美軍花了好幾年和數百萬美元所協助成立的阿富汗國防軍卻士氣低靡到無力阻擋叛軍的攻勢。政府的勝算越來越了然無望。美國堅稱撤軍並不表示結束對阿富汗的支持。在公開場合,兩國領導人將讚揚彼此亙久的友誼,而美國亦持續資助阿國政府並提供更多例如維修阿國戰鬥機的常態性軍售。在私底下,他們很可能會談論如何與塔利班重啟形同垂死的對話。不過隨著塔利班叛軍正佔上風的情勢,他們對談判並不感興趣。 ⚜️Daily takeaway⚜️ 每日單字精選 ✅Counterpart (n.): 對手、相對應之人 (名) ✅Departure (n.): 離開、出發 (名) ✅Resurgent (adj.): 復甦的、復活的 (形) ✅Rural (adj.): 鄉村的、郊外的 (形) ✅Assessment (n.): 評估 (名) ✅Insist (v.): 堅持 (動) ✅Friendship (n.): 友誼、交情 (名) ✅Revitalise (v.): 振興、再活化 (動) ✅Parley (v./n.): 談判 (動/名) — ✔︎ 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
