Thank you. Thank you very much, Mike, thank you for the introduction, but – more than that – for your service to our country, and our partnership during the four years I served as Secretary of State. What happens in Vladivostok stays in Vladivostok.I am delighted to be back here at Stanford. And I will never forget the day that we first brought Chelsea here. I brought her to visit when she was thinking about schools, but I knew as soon as she saw Stanford that this is where, if she were fortunate enough to be admitted, she would certainly choose to come. And, of course, I remember when Bill and I brought her here to begin her freshman year, and then the dinner for parents that Mike was referring to. So its a great treat to be back.And now that my daughter is a mother herself – you can imagine – theres aly talk, at least among one or two members of our family, since her husband is also an alum of Stanford, about how good Charlotte would look one day in Cardinal red.I am delighted to be here with some very distinguished guests. Secretary Shultz, Secretary Perry, thank you both for being here with us. Lanny, thank you. Marcos, thank you, and others. Its really a great treat for me to be not only at the university, but at this particular institute as well. You have really made Stanford a center for national security scholarship, and that is the principal reason why I am here today.Yesterdays attack in Brussels was the latest brutal reminder that our fight against ISIS and radical jihadist terrorism is far from finished.More than 30 innocent people are dead – men and women, hurrying to catch a plane, or waiting for a train, or meeting a loved one. Hundreds more are wounded, including three Mormon missionaries from Utah; a U.S. Air Force officer, his wife and four children; and other Americans.Its understandable that Americans here at home are worried. The threat we face from terrorism is real, its urgent, and it knows no boundaries. Even as Brussels grieves, the memories of Paris and San Bernardino are painfully fresh as well. On Saturday, a bombing in Istanbul killed four people, including two U.S.-Israeli dual citizens. Many other places have been targeted by terrorists in the past year alone. Hotels in West Africa. Beaches in Tunisia. A market in Lebanon. A Russian passenger jet in the Sinai.ISIS is attempting a genocide of religious and ethnic minorities. It beheads civilians. It enslaves, tortures, and rapes women and girls.Walls will not protect us from this threat. We cannot contain ISIS – we must defeat ISIS.This will be one of the most important challenges facing the next president, who takes office on January 20. Our new commander in chief will walk into the Oval Office and find a world of hard choices and complex problems. That president will sit down at that desk and start making decisions that will affect the lives – and livelihoods – of every American, and people around the world.So, the stakes could not be higher.Today, I want to emphasize three points.First, we face an adversary that is constantly adapting and operating across multiple theaters, so our response must be just as nimble and far-reaching.Second, to defeat this transnational threat, we need to reinforce the alliances that have been core pillars of American power for decades.And third, we need to rely on what actually works – not bluster that alienates our partners and doesnt make us any safer.Lets begin by being clear about what we are facing: ISIS controls a shrinking but still sizeable territory in Iraq and Syria. It leads a far-flung network that includes affiliates across the Middle East and North Africa, and cells in Europe, Asia, and even here in North America. Its also part of a broader ideological movement that includes other terrorist groups.We need to do battle on all these fronts.Last year, in speeches in New York and Minneapolis, I laid out a three-part plan to defeat ISIS in the Middle East, around the world, and here at home. Recent events have only reinforced the urgency of this mission.First, we do have to take out ISIS stronghold in Iraq and Syria.We should intensify the coalition air campaign against its fighters, leaders, and infrastructure; step up support for local Arab and Kurdish forces on the ground and coalition efforts to protect civilians; and pursue a diplomatic strategy aimed at achieving political resolutions to Syrias civil war and Iraqs sectarian divide.Second, we must dismantle the global network of terror that supplies money, arms, propaganda, and fighters. This means targeted efforts to deal with ISIS affiliates, from Libya to Afghanistan. It means going after the key enablers who facilitate illicit financial transactions and help jihadists arrange travel, forge documents, and evade detection. And it means waging online battles with extremists to discredit their ideology, expose their lies, and counter their appeals to potential recruits in the West and around the world.Third, we must harden our defenses and build our resilience here at home. We need to counter each step in the process that can lead to an attack, deterring would-be terrorists and discovering and disrupting plots before theyre carried out.201603/433994

VOA流行美语 87: NEAT FREAK / CRASH今天Larry到Li Hua的宿舍里面去串门,Li Hua会学到两个常用语:neat freak和crash.LL: Hey, Li Hua. What are you doing?LH: 我刚收拾完房间,现在我要把所有文件分类,然后放在这些不同颜色的文件夹里。LL: Wow, you really are a neat freak.LH: 你说我是什么?Neat freak?听上去就不是什么好意思。哎,你别叫那些我听不懂的名字,好不好?LL: Calm down. Li Hua. To be neat is to be very clean and orderly. A freak is a person that is really weird or unusual. Together, a "neat freak" refers to someone who likes to keep things extremely clean and organized.LH: 嗯,neat这个词我知道,就是"干净、有条理"的意思, freak就是说一个人和一般人不一样,很古怪。所以,a neat freak就是一个特别爱干净、特别有条理的人。哎,Larry, 你真觉得我是个neat freak吗?LL: Yes, see, your room always looks perfect, you always make your bed. You never throw your clothes on the floor. And you have all your papers well organized.LH: 那你和neat freak刚好相反。你的房间总是乱糟糟的,床也不铺,衣满地乱扔,还有,你的各种学习资料也是到处乱放。LL: Well, I'm not a neat freak, so I don't care if everything is neat and perfect.LH: 我看哪,Larry, 你就是太懒了-- I think you are just too lazy。LL: Well, maybe I am a little lazy, but look at your room, books, sweaters and even newspapers are stacked in order, and you're a real neat freak.LH: 怎么啦,书呀、毛衣和报纸当然应该放整齐嘛。这有什么奇怪的? 对你来说这可能是过份"有条理",可能是有点怪。Well, I guess I am a neat freak.LL: Alright. Now that you've finished cleaning, why don't we go to a movie.LH: Sure, let's go!******LL: That movie was so long. It's almost midnight! I'm so tired that I think I'm going to go home and crash.LH: 什么?你是说你太累了,如果开车回家会出交通事故啊?LL: No, I don't mean crash as in "car-crash". I mean crash as in "go to sleep".LH: 我还是不懂。你是说crash,这个词,除了可以用作car-crash, 表示"撞车",还可以用来表示"睡觉"啊?LL: Yes, "I really want to go home and crash" means that I really want to go home and sleep.LH: 噢,我懂了。想想看,crash这个词用在这里还挺形象的,因为你太累了,所以一回家就"瘫"在床上"睡着"了。So, Larry, can I say I was so tired that I crashed on the couch -- 我实在太累了,所以倒在沙发上就睡着了?LL: Yes, you can say that. Another example is: I crashed at Jim's house the other night because it was too late to go home.LH: 这个我懂,你是说,你那天晚上在Jim家玩得太晚了,所以干脆不回家,就在他家里过了一夜。 那要是我家里在粉刷墙壁,没法住,我可不可以说,I'd like to crash at my friend's house?LL: Of course you can, but right now Li Hua, what I really want is to crash in my own bed. I can't wait to get home.LH: 有那么着急吗? 刚才看电影的时候我看你眼睛还张的大大的呢。不过,我也挺累的了。我想我一到家也会倒头就睡着的 -- I will also crash when I get home.LL: Let's go!今天李华学到了两个常用语。一个是neat freak, 表示"特别爱干净、有条理的人"。另一个是crash, 在口语里可以表示"睡觉"。 /200602/3162
