前國防部長馬提斯(James Mattis)於去年12月20日向川普總統辭職,震撼華府及國際政治圈。

五角大廈當天發表了馬提斯寫給川普的辭職信內容,其中提到川普有權選擇立場與其一致的國防部長,因此他認為自己應該離任。這意味馬提斯辭職,是因為他與川普的意見分歧。

馬提斯也趁此機會,透過辭呈提醒川普,中國與俄羅斯對美國的威脅,以及維持海外盟邦的重要性。

以下摘錄馬提斯辭職信的部分內容。

• One core belief I have always held is that our strength as a nation is inextricably linked to the strength of our unique and comprehensive system of alliances and partnerships. 

我一直深信,我國的強大實力,與獨特且全面的盟邦及合作夥伴關係密不可分。

• While the US remains the indispensable nation in the free world, we cannot protect our interests or serve that role effectively without maintaining strong alliances and showing respect to those allies. 

美國依然是自由世界不可或缺的國家,但若無法維持強大的盟邦並且尊敬他們,就無法保護我國利益,也無法有效做到這一點。

• Like you, I have said from the beginning that the armed forces of the United States should not be the policeman of the world.  Instead, we must use all tools of American power to provide for the common defense, including providing effective leadership to our alliances. 

就像您說的,我從一開始就說過,美國武裝部隊不應該是世界警察,我們反而應該運用美國力量的所有工具,提供共同防衛,包括為盟國展現有效領導能力。

• NATO's 29 democracies demonstrated that strength in their commitment to fighting alongside us following the 9-11 attack on America. The Defeat-ISIS coalition of 74 nations is further proof.

在美國承受911攻擊後,北約組織的29個民主國家與我們並肩作戰,展現了他們對盟國力量的承諾,而打敗伊斯蘭國的74國聯盟更進一步證明了這點。

• My views on treating allies with respect and also being clear-eyed about both malign actors and strategic competitors are strongly held and informed by over four decades of immersion in these issues. 

我浸淫這些主題超過40年,因此非常了解及深信必須尊重盟邦,同時清楚觀察不懷好意的組織及戰略競爭對手。

• We must do everything possible to advance an international order that is most conducive to our security, prosperity and values, and we are strengthened in this effort by the solidarity of our alliances.

我們必須儘可能推動最有利本國安全、繁榮與價值的國際秩序,只有與盟邦團結在一起才能強化我們。

• Because you have the right to have a Secretary of Defense whose views are better aligned with yours on these and other subjects, I believe it is right for me to step down from my position.

你應該有位國防部長,在這些主題與其他主題上的看法與你更一致,因此我認為現在是卸任的時候了。
