"Bandit territory" = vùng đất trộm cắp -> nghĩa là nơi pháp luật không thể thực thi, không ai quan tâm đến các luật lệ.

Ví dụ
Niger, about twice the size of France and two-thirds (hai phần ba) desert, has long boasted dinosaur riches (phong phú). Countless bones poke through the sand. Paleontologists (nhà cổ sinh vật học) face a sweltering (ngột ngạt) trek through bandit territory to reach what researchers call the continent’s (lục địa) most diverse mix of extinct giants.

Is there any connection between Turkey and recent Islamic insurgency (nổi loạn) in natural gas rich Mozambique, given its hunger for natural gas?… The North-West of Nigeria is now bandit territory. The North-East is a cauldron of death.

By his intelligent and forceful leadership without thought of his own personal safety, by great physical exertion and by suffering many hardships, Lieutenant Puller surmounted (vượt qua) all obstacles and dealt five successive and severe blows against organized banditry in the Republic of Nicaragua.

A huge swathe (vùng rộng) of the north is now bandit territory. Most of us know where our cattle are, but we cannot retrieve them. Abducted women and young girls hardly ever return.

“An insult to one is an insult to all” -> nghĩa là lăng mạ một người thì chẳng khác gì sỉ nhục tất cả mọi người trong nhóm đó.

Ví dụ
So this prompted us to stand with the Catholics, because an insult to one is an insult to all. The 90 days of prayer will end on August 29.

There is one purpose and one alone to hosting world leaders at this gathering on the hallowed ground of Yad Vashem, built on the location on a Palestinian settlement that existed before 1948. It is to wrangle them together so that they may understand what they must do when they return home: protect Israel at all costs. The goal of the Holocaust event is to wipe out any distinction between the Holocaust, antisemitism and Israel. They are all one: an insult to one is an insult to all.

“The Catholic (Bishops’ Pastoral) Letter was trying to provoke discussion, not give an insult. It pointed out problems like all of us were doing. But it received such a strong (Government) backlash. We felt that given the situation in the country if we just stand by and watch, we don’t know what will happen. We have journalists and activists in prison. There have been abductions with perpetrators unidentified, making us all vulnerable. So, this prompted us to stand with the Catholics, because an insult to one is an insult to all,” said Muparutsa.
