"Tour de force" nghĩa là gì?

'Tour de force' (tiếng Pháp) nghĩa là thành công, thành tựu (một cách khéo léo, một cách xuất sắc) (an impressive performance or achievement that has been accomplished or managed with great skill; triumph, masterpiece, achievement, success, masterful performance, magnum opus).

Ví dụ
Putin's Syria tour de force.

Ted Cruz' tour de force on the Senate floor.

Carrey's latest comedic tour de force.

Calculations of power without a moral dimension will turn every disagreement into a test of strength; ambition will know no resting place (nơi yên nghỉ, nấm mồ); countries will be propelled into unsustainable tours de force of elusive (khó nắm bắt) calculations regarding the shifting configuration of power.

  1. Shavit’s narrative of the massacre and expulsion of the Arabs of Lydda by Israeli forces in the war of 1948 is a sickening tour de force, even if it is not, in his view, all one needs to know about the war or the country.
