"Be on the horns of a dilemma" nghĩa là gì?

"Be/between on the horns of a dilemma" nghĩa là tiến không được mà lùi chẳng xong, tình thế tiến thoái lưỡng nan.

Ví dụ
We have been successful in restricting (hạn chế) our shopping trips to a minimum (tối thiểu), although I’m on the horns of a dilemma, whether to stay at home as required by my age or avoid overloading (quá tải) the local supermarkets’ online ordering capacity.

The Jharkhand government (chính phủ) is on the horns of a dilemma over the coronavirus lockdown as extending (gia hạn) it would lead to financial distress (khủng hoảng tài chính) and lifting it could trigger (gây ra) an influx of migrants (dòng người di cư) into the state, Chief Minister Hemant Soren said on Saturday.

McLachlan’s explanation (giải thích) was clear, his action decisive (quyết đoán). But it put rival (đối thủ) winter codes on the horn of a dilemma. Given the trans-national (xuyên quốc gia) nature of its competition, the call to suspend (đình chỉ) the Super Rugby at the end of last weekend’s matches was unavoidable (không thể tránh khỏi). But for the NRL and the A-League an already fraught pathway towards lumbering (khó khăn) on has become virtually impossible.
