STUTTGART, Germany -- Islamic State militants have released a video that purportedly shows scenes from an October ambush in Niger in which four U.S. soldiers were killed.

德国斯图加特——伊斯兰国武装分子发布了一段视频,据称这段视频显示了(去年)10月份尼日尔一次伏击的场景,当时有4名美国士兵被打死。

The video, circulated on social media on Sunday, shows a small team of U.S. troops under heavy gunfire. Overlaid with music and propaganda messages, it opens with militants appearing to assemble before the ambush.

这段视频周日在社交媒体上传开,视频中显示了一小队美军在猛烈的炮火下进行战斗。视频中音乐和宣传信息叠加在一起,显示武装分子在伏击之前似乎就集结在了一起。

The nine-minute video then cuts to the view from a U.S. soldier's helmet, seized by the militants after the attack, which shows the ambush in graphic detail. This part of the video suggests the troops were heavily outgunned, with the sound of fire pouring in from several directions.

随后,这段9分钟的视频从一名美国士兵头盔的视角切入,该头盔在袭击后被武装分子缴获,视频的画面详细显示了美军被伏击的细节。
这段视频表明随着四面八方的炮火声,美军被冲溃。

The military said it was aware of the ISIS propaganda video and asked that the imagery not be released.

军方表示,他们知道这个ISIS的宣传视频,并要求不要公布这些影像。

A portion of the video shows the Americans crouching behind their Toyota Land Cruiser and a truck. The soldiers fired smoke grenades, which could have been used to shroud their position and to guide in airstrikes.

该视频的一部分显示美国士兵蹲在丰田越野车和卡车的后面。然后士兵们发射了烟雾弹,这些手榴弹本来可以用来掩护他们的阵地和指导空袭。

U.S. officials have said French air support didn't arrive until two hours after the attack. U.S. troops didn't call in for air support until about one hour after the assault, military officials have said. The apparent delay could have been a result of radio communication problems.

美国官员称法国空中支援直到袭击发生两个小时后才抵达。军方官员说,美军直到袭击发生了一个小时后才要求空中支援。这么大的延迟可能是无线电通讯出现问题造成的。

With no place to take cover, two soldiers broke into a sprint, the video shows. One soldier fell after being shot. Moments later, helmet cam video shows the soldier shot again at close range as masked militants appear around him.

视频显示,由于没有地方可以遮蔽,两名士兵选择进行冲刺。一名士兵中枪后摔倒。片刻后,头盔摄像头视频显示,随着蒙面武装分子出现在他的周围,这名士兵再次遭到近距离射击。

Killed in the ambush were Sgt. La David Johnson and Staff Sgts. Bryan Black, Jeremiah Johnson and Dustin Wright.

在伏击中丧生的是拉大卫·约翰逊中士和参谋中士布莱恩·布莱克,杰利米·约翰逊和达斯汀·赖特。

The roughly 40-person U.S.-Nigerien patrol, which included 12 U.S. soldiers, came under attack on the morning of Oct. 4 by about 50 Islamic State fighters as the unit was returning to its camp. The propaganda video showed only a small group of U.S. soldiers, who appear to have been separated from the rest of their team.

包括12名美军士兵在内的大约40人的美国-尼日利亚巡逻队在10月4日上午返回营地时遭到了大约50名伊斯兰国战士的袭击,这段宣传视频只显示了一小群美国士兵,他们似乎已经与其他队员脱离。

The patrol had left the Nigerien capital of Niamey on Oct. 3 to meet with local leaders near the village of Tongo Tongo, about 53 miles to the north.

巡逻队于10月3日离开尼日利亚首都尼亚美,在北部约53英里的通戈通戈村附近会见当地领导人。

U.S. Africa Command continues to investigate the attack and whether U.S. troops had sufficient resources to carry out patrols where different militant groups operate. The military says its forces are deployed as advisers to local troops.

美国非洲司令部对这次袭击仍在继续调查,以及评估美国军队是否有足够的资源在不同的武装组织活动的地方进行巡逻。军方表示,这支部队是作为当地部队的顾问部署的。

In the wake of the ambush some lawmakers are questioning the wisdom of the Niger mission.

在伏击发生之后,一些议员对在尼日尔执行使命是否明智提出了质疑。

"We don't know exactly where we're at in the world militarily and what we're doing," Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said on NBC's "Meet the Press" after the attack. There are about 800 American troops in Niger.

共和党参议员林赛·格雷厄姆在美国全国广播公司(NBC)的“会见媒体”(Meet The Press)节目中表示:“我们不了解我们在世界上的军事地位,以及我们现在正在做些什么。”有大约800名美军部署在尼日尔。

AFRICOM, expected to wrap up its investigation in the coming weeks, condemned the video.

非洲司令部预计将在未来几周内结束调查,并谴责了该视频。

"The release of these materials demonstrates the depravity of the enemy we are fighting," AFRICOM said in a statement. "We encourage the news media to deny ISIS a propaganda success by not purchasing, showing or bringing undue attention to these images as it re-victimizes the affected families, amplifies IS atrocities and aids in their recruiting."

非洲司令部在一份声明中说:“这些材料的释放证明了我们所对抗的敌人的邪恶。”“我们鼓励新闻媒体通过不购买、不展示或过度关注这些图像来抵制ISIS的宣传,因为它再次伤害了受影响的家庭,放大了IS的暴行,并协助他们的招募。”

This is pretty bad. How about the soldier that was hacked to death by the seals in the same area. This is worse then having our soldiers killed by the Isis Marines.

这真是太糟糕了。和那些在这片地区(非洲)被杀的海豹士兵一样。这比我们的士兵被ISIS的精英部队杀害更糟。

MILITARY WATCHDOG -- Congress questions much and does mostly nothing.

国会提出了很多问题,但是几乎什么实事也没干。

I wonder if the general in charge of this amphibious disaster is going to be held accountable.

我不知道负责这场特种兵灾难的将军是否会被问责。

more likely promoted.

更有可能的是升职。

Are we gonna have another Mogadishu? Because i feel like we're getting there.

我们还会有另一个摩加迪沙(注:黑鹰坠落事件)吗?我觉得快了。

NIGER: GDP per capita, $363.23! Ranking on the TI corrution index, 112/180 with a score of 33 out of a possible 100! Life Expectancy, 61.97 years! Literacy, 27%! Unemployment, 14.2% This is another LandLocked HH that we have ZERO interest in and ZERO reason to be in. GET OUT NOW!

尼日尔:人均国内生产总值,363.23美元!腐败指数排名112/180,满分100分得了33分!预期寿命,61.97岁!识字率,27%!失业率,14.2%,这是另一个我们毫无利益所在并且毫无理由插手的内陆地区。现在就从那里滚蛋!

I watched the body camera video on the violent hour TV last night. The final frame is when the warrior wearing the body camera is shot dead. Give the "Flag" who ordered this mission the fireing squad. After a fair trial!

我昨晚在一个电视节目里看了这个视频。视频的最后一个画面是戴着头盔摄像机的战士被近距离补枪枪杀。
请经过公平的审判后,给予这次任务的指挥者应有的判决!

When will we evr learn, no one can win a guerilla war if they don't have the support of the locals? We can win any face to face war but have not learned our lesson with guerilla warfare. Who gives a damn about these worthless countries except for their oil or minerals?

我们什么时候才能学到,如果没有当地人的支持,没有人能赢得游击战?我们可以面对面地赢得任何战争,但却没有从游击战中吸取教训。除了石油和矿产之外,还有谁在乎这些毫无价值的国家呢?

Not first time our troops have been put in a unwinable situation. I am sure that these brave men died with no rounds left to fire doing the job that they were trained to do and signed up for.
Hopefully their mission was not politically driven.

我们的部队已不是第一次被派到一个无法取胜的境地了。我相信这些勇士战斗到了最后一秒,正如训练中的那样。
希望他们的任务不是由政治驱动的。

Should have been RECON IN FORCE and keep your ass wired tight at all times. I was told this a long time ago.

这些应该是侦察部队,他们应该时时保持警惕。这种事已经不是第一次发生了。

This situation has been so typical since the Nam War. Can't tell people how many times Marines were sent out on missions where we were undermanned. It was absolutely absurd. The bad guys always had eyes on us, knew what was going on and just waited for the right time for an ambush. I can understan sneek and peak missions, say like with ForceRecon but, they were usually not out there looking for a fight or pitched battle with the bad guys. As usual, the Brass Hat Bigade ignores decades of combat history and they send people out based upon their arrogant decisions and underestimating an enemy and an enemies capabilities. Some heads should role for this decision in Niger, heads should have rolled for the Benghazi incident and plenty of others incidents. Usually, the Brigade I mentioned previously, will do a tap dance and do all in their power to evade responsibility. One has to wonder, exactly what kind of tactics are being taught at OCS and any of our Academies? Based upon the results, apparently not much, as the same mistakes keep getting made and costing American lives. 

这是自越南战争以来就一直很典型的情况。我们的海军陆战队在人手不足的情况下执行任务的次数数不胜数。这绝对是荒谬的。坏人一直在盯着我们,知道发生了什么,只是等待合适的时间埋伏。我可以理解像军力侦察这样的任务,这种任务不会寻求在野外和坏人们进行激烈的战斗。

和往常一样,指挥者们忽视了几十年来的战斗历史,低估敌人和敌人的能力,根据傲慢的决定把自己的士兵送出去。一些头头应该为尼日尔的这次失败负责,正如班加西事件和其他事件的头头一样。然而和往常一样,我前面提到的领导人只会互相推诿,尽全力逃避责任。我们不禁要问,在我们的军官学校和专科院校里,究竟都教了些什么东西?基于这些不断发生的事件,显然得到应有后果的并不多,因为同样的错误不断地发生,并使许多美国人付出了生命的代价。

Sad, sad, sad. My bet is the AfriCom protocols for mission change /realingement require additional threat assements to be completed and they were not. Therefore the men in the field took the hits.

惨,惨,惨。我敢打赌,非洲司令部的任务中有着变更或实现协议要求的完成额外的威胁评估,但他们没有去做。因此,战场上的人受到了打击。

Rest in peace brave Soldiers, Amen.

安息,勇敢的士兵,阿门。

Heads should roll...

We need to be in Africa and anyone who says other wise doesn't know what he's talking about! The Chinese are all over Africa. They are building roads and buildings becasue they know it is resources rich. The people in charge of this operation all the way up to the BDE commander level should be fired! Here is your pink slip! If it goes to the general level so be it! Here's another pink slip! From the beginning this operation smelled, like it was planned by amateurs. 

我们需要在非洲任,何说其他说我们应该撤出非洲的睿智都不知道他们在说什么!中国人遍布非洲。他们正在修建道路和建筑物,因为他们知道那里资源丰富。负责这一行动的人,一直到BDE指挥官的级别,都应该被开除!这是你的解雇通知书!从一开始,这一行动就大有问题,就像是业余爱好者去做的计划。

Conrad Vonblankenburg
I agree with your premmise but not with the method of your post. I have been to and lived in several countries in Africa as well as the rest of the world. The people in their own respective countries need to develope their OWN resourses in an equitable manner. Every place I go in other countries the PLA/PRC has a project to make money. They do it without a military force. They bribe their way in and use slave labor. America can not manage America! Let alone any thing else. Fix America now!

我同意你说的一部分。我去过非洲的几个国家,也在世界其他地方生活过。本国人民需要以公平的方式发展“自己”的资源。美国自己都管不好美国!更别提其他地方了。现在开始专注于修复美国!

Another sad saga in the military history of the USA. Totally self-inflicted and a national disgrace.

美国军事史上又一件悲惨的事情。完全是自作自受。
