今日英语词汇 Words & Phrases of the Day

raspberry
noun (SOUND)
a sound made with the tongue and lips in order to express derision or contempt.
(伸出舌头并吹气而发出的无礼的)呸声,嘘声 

During an interview published on Thursday in the Economist, Macron blew a loud raspberry at the military alliance, declaring that Donald Trump’s presidency has inflicted “brain death” upon it.

ouroboros
The ouroboros is an ancient symbol of a snake or serpent eating its own tail, variously signifying infinity and the cycle of birth and death;represent the eternal cycle of destruction and rebirth

The result was a kind of geopolitical ouroboros: NATO helped provoke the very standoff that allowed it to justify its continued existence.

ride roughshod over sb/sth
to do what you want without giving any attention to other people or their wishes
不管…而一意孤行

But Trump’s own actions and rhetoric suggest that he wants to wave auf wiedersehen to the alliance. His willingness to allow Turkey to run roughshod over the Kurds, his attempt to muscle over Ukraine, his ostentatious praise of Russia and his unremitting condemnations of Germany offer ample evidence of his disdain for the Western allies.

revanchist
a policy of seeking to retaliate, especially to recover lost territory.
寻求报复的政策,特别是收复失地的政策。

It’s always possible that France and Germany would adopt the path of least resistance and seek to placate a revanchist Russia by ceding it a de facto sphere of influence in the Baltics and Eastern Europe.

cough sth up
to produce money or information unwillingly
勉强给予(钱或信息)

Trump has made it clear that he regards relations with the allies as an economic venture, in which they are supposed to cough up the funds for their own protection.
