美国总统受奖演说-双语阅读

浏览量: 发布时间:2019-01-02 19:18 点击在线免费咨询

我怀着深深的感激之情接受了这个奖项。我感谢我的妻子罗莎琳,我在卡特中心的同事们,以及许多继续寻求在全世界结束暴力和苦难的人。
 
 
 
大多数诺贝尔奖获得者都是在安全的情况下完成我们的工作的,但也有一些人是以极大的个人勇气行动的。我的两个朋友,安瓦尔·萨达特和伊扎克·拉宾,为中东和平事业献出了自己的生命,没有人比他们更生动地提醒了和平的危险。
 
 
 
像这两位英雄一样,我第一次选择的职业是在军队,作为一名潜艇军官。我和我的同船人意识到,如果战争迫于我们,我们必须做好战斗准备,我们准备献出我们的生命来保卫我们的国家和它的原则。同时,我们总是热切地祈祷,我们的准备将确保没有战争。
 
 
 
后来,作为我们军队的总统和总司令,我是其中一个在冷战高潮期间承担着保持全球稳定这一令人清醒的责任的人,因为世界上的两个超级大国相互对峙。
 
 
 
自从我离开白宫以来,世界发生了巨大的变化。现在只有一个超级大国,拥有空前的军事和经济实力。美国即将出台的军备预算将超过未来15个国家的总和,世界上许多国家都有来自美国的军队。
 
 
 
但是,世界现在不是进入和平的千年,而是在许多方面更危险的地方。旅行和交流的便利性并没有得到平等的理解和相互尊重。有过多的内战,其中绝大多数的伤亡者是手无寸铁的平民,他们没有能力自卫。最近可怕的恐怖主义行为提醒我们,没有任何国家,即使是超级大国,是无懈可击的。
 
 
 
很明显,应对全球挑战必须强调和平,与他人和谐相处,建立强有力的联盟和国际共识。尽管这可能不完美,但毫无疑问,这最好通过联合国来实现。
 
 
 
我们必须记住,今天地球上至少有八个核大国,其中三个在国际紧张局势下威胁着邻国。对于强权国家来说,采取预防性战争的原则很可能是一个可能产生灾难性后果的例子。
 
 
 
如果我们接受联合国是维持和平的最佳途径这一前提,那么必须执行联合国安理会经过慎重考虑的决定。通常情况下,另一种选择是无法控制的暴力和不断扩大的敌对范围。

 

It is with a deep sense of gratitude that I accept this prize. I am grateful to my wife Rosalynn, to my colleagues at the Carter Center, and to many others who continue to seek an end to violence and suffering throughout the world.
 
Most Nobel laureates have carried out our work in safety, but there are others who have acted with great personal courage. None has provided more vivid reminders of the dangers of peacemaking than two of my friends, Anwar Sadat and Yitzak Rabin, who gave their lives for the cause of peace in the Middle East.
 
Like these two heroes, my first chosen career was in the military, as a submarine officer. My shipmates and I realized that we had to be ready to fight if combat was forced upon us, and we were prepared to give our lives to defend our nation and its principles. At the same time, we always prayed fervently that our readiness would ensure that there would be no war.
 
Later, as President and as CommanderinChief of our armed forces, I was one of those who bore the sobering responsibility of maintaining global stability during the height of the Cold War, as the world's two superpowers confronted each other.
 
The world has changed greatly since I left the White House. Now there is only one superpower, with unprecedented military and economic strength. The coming budget for American armaments will be greater than those of the next fifteen nations combined, and there are troops from the United States in many countries throughout the world.
 
But instead of entering a millennium of peace, the world is now, in many ways, a more dangerous place. The greater ease of travel and communication has not been matched by equal understanding and mutual respect. There is a plethora of civil wars, within which an overwhelming portion of the casualties are unarmed civilians who have no ability to defend themselves. And recent appalling acts of terrorism have reminded us that no nations, even superpowers, are invulnerable.
 
It is clear that global challenges must be met with an emphasis on peace, in harmony with others, with strong alliances and international consensus. Imperfect as it may be, there is no doubt that this can best be done through the United Nations.
 
We must remember that today there are at least eight nuclear powers on earth, and three of them are threatening to their neighbors in areas of great international tension. For powerful countries to adopt a principle of preventive war may well set an example that can have catastrophic consequences.
 
If we accept the premise that the United Nations is the best avenue for the maintenance of peace, then the carefully considered decisions of the United Nations Security Council must be enforced. All too often, the alternative has proven to be uncontrollable violence and expanding spheres of hostility.(To be continued)
