Parliament also plays a role in this regard and is often able to act as a significant ally for vulnerable groups, especially in the context of sexual violence.
Le législateur joue également un rôle à cet égard et il est souvent en mesure de faire fonction d'allié important pour les groupes vulnérables, particulièrement dans le contexte de la violence sexuelle.
Why was Austria, backed by her German ally, so uncompromising, and why, for the sake of an object so trifling, did she expose herself to a general conflagration which might involve her own disappearance ?
Mais pourquoi l'Autriche soutenue par son alliée l'Allemagne se montrait-elle aussi intransigeante? Pourquoi s'exposait-elle, dans un but si minime, à une conflagration générale où elle pouvait disparaître?

If there were a more open and candid discussion about what the Israelis are doing in the Occupied Territories, and about the real strategic value of Israel as a U.S. ally, there would be much less sympathy for Israel in the American public.
S'il y avait un débat plus ouvert et plus franc sur ce que les Israéliens font dans les territoires occupés, et sur la véritable valeur stratégique d'Israël, le peuple américain se sentirait beaucoup moins solidaire de l'État hébreu.

To-day we have nothing before us but the necessity of breaking with our ally, who speculated on our pride, who has never helped us in any way, who has never given us anything but bad advice, and treated us otherwise than with suspicion.
Aujourd’hui, nous n’avons plus qu’à rompre avec une alliée, qui a joué de notre orgueil, sans jamais nous servir en rien, sans qu’il nous soit venu d’elle autre chose que des méfiances et d’exécrables conseils...

I never go into a skrimmage, friend mariner, without thinking of this great ally, who can do more in battle than all the battalions of the 60th, were they brought into a single line."

Ah! I have always been the friend of France. I only reproach her with one thing, that she has failed to understand the position in which we were placed, the vital reasons which compelled us to ally ourselves with Germany.
