Senior Bush administration officials warned Wednesday that the already dire situation in Sudan's western Darfur region could get worse without a larger presence by African Union monitors.
美国政府高级官员星期三警告说,假如非洲联盟不派遣更多的观察员到苏丹西部达尔富尔地区,当地本来就已经非常严峻的形势可能会进一步恶化。

United Nations officials say some 50,000 people have died and a million and a half have been left homeless by the conflict in Darfur, which began last year when the Khartoum government sent Arab militiamen to put down a revolt by local rebel groups. But senior Bush administration officials are warning that the crisis may not have peaked yet, and that the looming prospect of tribal warfare, a regional drought and locust plague may make humanitarian conditions even worse.
联合国官员说,达尔富尔地区的冲突已经造成大约五万人死亡,一百五十万人无家可归。那里的冲突是去年开始的。当时,苏丹政府派遣阿拉伯民兵前去镇压那里的反政府组织的暴动。但是,布什政府高级官员警告说,那里的危机可能还没有达到高峰,部落战争,地区旱灾以及蝗灾有可能使那里的人们的基本生存条件进一步恶化。

Mr. Natsios, who met in Khartoum with senior officials including First Vice President Ali Osman Taha, said the response to the resolution remains inadequate and that the United States is putting heavy pressure on Sudan to, among other things, allow a major increase in the African Union observer presence: "They think we are going after them, and we are. The question of course is not whether we go after them, but how we resolve the crisis. We have 1.5 million people in those camps," he said. "We have a pending locust plague, a potential drought, and a war still going on. Our first priority right now is to end the conflict, get the people back to their villages before this turns into a much worse tragedy that it is now."
美国国际开发署署长纳齐奥斯在访问苏丹期间会晤了苏丹政府高级官员,包括苏丹第一副总统阿里-奥斯曼-塔哈。纳齐奥斯说,苏丹政府对安理会决议做出的回应仍然不能令人满意,美国正在对苏丹施加强大的压力,要求苏丹允许非洲联盟向达尔富尔地区大量增派观察员。他说:“他们以为我们是故意找他们的毛病。我们确实是在找他们的毛病。现在的问题当然不是我们是否在找他们的毛病,而是我们如何解决这一危机。有一百五十万人在难民营里。蝗灾迫在眉睫,还可能发生旱灾,而且那里的战争还在进行。我们目前的当务之急就是结束冲突,让人们返回他们的村庄,避免目前的危机演变成更大的悲剧。”

F42
Obsessive-compulsive disorder
The essential feature is recurrent obsessional thoughts or compulsive acts. Obsessional
thoughts are ideas, images, or impulses that enter the patient's mind again and again in a
stereotyped form. They are almost invariably distressing and the patient often tries,
unsuccessfully, to resist them. They are, however, recognized as his or her own thoughts,
even though they are involuntary and often repugnant. Compulsive acts or rituals are
stereotyped behaviours that are repeated again and again. They are not inherently
enjoyable, nor do they result in the completion of inherently useful tasks. Their function
is to prevent some objectively unlikely event, often involving harm to or caused by the
patient, which he or she fears might otherwise occur. Usually, this behaviour is
recognized by the patient as pointless or ineffectual and repeated attempts are made to
resist. Anxiety is almost invariably present. If compulsive acts are resisted the anxiety
gets worse.
Includes: anankastic neurosis
obsessive-compulsive neurosis
Excludes: obsessive-compulsive personality (disorder) (F60.5)
