EXAMPLES
Doch egal, wie wir die Region nennen: Es besteht die Gefahr, dass die globale Wirtschaftskrise ein nahezu perfektes Alibi für die Regierungen und andere dort bietet, mit der „gewohnten Tagesordnung“ fortzufahren, auch wenn eigentlich ein lauter Weckruf notwendig wäre.
But, whatever we choose to call it, the danger is that the global economic crisis is providing an almost perfect alibi for governments and others in the region to continue with “business as usual,” when what is needed is a loud wake-up call.
Aber das sollte kein Alibi dafür sein, nichts zu tun.
But that should not serve as an alibi for doing nothing.
Für diejenigen in den USA, die mit Recht zu dem Schluss kamen, dass sich das seit 50 Jahren aufrechte Handelsembargo als kontraproduktiv erwies, ist das ein ansprechender Kompromiss, der auch ein Alibi für Mäßigung bietet: Eines Tages werden die Wirtschaftsreformen zu einem politischen Wandel führen.
For those in the United States who have rightly concluded that the half-century trade embargo has proved counter-productive, this is an appealing halfway response that provides an alibi for moderation: one day, economic reforms will bring political change.
