With so many people in Iraq suffering so much in so many ways, it may seem callous to discuss the economic costs.

But perhaps this is very fanciful; and it may be that she was merely bored with her husband and went to Strickland out of a callous curiosity.
Но, может быть, это лишь поэтические домыслы, может быть, ей просто наскучил муж и она сошлась со Стриклендом из бессердечного любопытства?

To hide from the mockery and the anger and the callous cruelty that would greet him if he should happen to be seen.
Укрыться от насмешек, гнева и бессердечной жестокости.

True, they had a callous regime (under Saddam). But there were no extremists, no militants operating in the country in those days.
Да, там был другой режим, совершенно ненормальный и дурацкий, может быть, но экстремистов там не было, не было боевиков.
And that happy creature rejected the priceless gift, prized it and loved it not, scorned it and remained callous.
Отвергло сие счастливое существо дар бесценный, не оценило его, не возлюбило, взглянуло насмешливо и осталось бесчувственным.

If the people around you are spiteful and callous and will not hear you, fall down before them and beg their forgiveness; for in truth you are to blame for their not wanting to hear you.
Если кругом тебя люди злобные и бесчувственные и не захотят тебя слушать, то пади пред ними и у них прощения проси, ибо воистину и ты в том виноват, что не хотят тебя слушать.

The people surrounding me were uneducated, unintellectual, callous, for the most part dishonest, or if they were honest, they were unreasonable and unpractical like my wife, for instance.
Окружали меня люди необразованные, неразвитые, равнодушные, в громадном большинстве нечестные, или же честные, но взбалмошные и несерьезные, как, например, моя жена.

That he does so with callous disregard to those who become unwitting principles in his often deadly game is a testament to the same sort of negative resignation that long ago infected Artemis Entreri, and Zaknafein.
При этом ему дела нет до тех, кто становится ничего не подозревающим участником его забав, зачастую фатальных, и это лишь доказывает, что Джарлакса так же не волнуют проблемы окружающего мира, как Артемиса Энтрери и когда- то Закнафейна.

The sensitive, affectionate and kind-hearted Erkel was perhaps the most callous of Shatov's would-be murderers, and, though he had no personal spite against him, he would have been present at his murder without-the quiver of an eyelid.
Чувствительный, ласковый и добрый Эркель быть может был самым бесчувственным из убийц, собравшихся на Шатова, и без всякой личной ненависти, не смигнув глазом, присутствовал бы при его убиении.

Her callous tone drew a grin from Entreri. He could tell that she was agitated under that calm facade.
Энтрери невольно улыбнулся: он почувствовал, что за нарочито жестким тоном командир прячет волнение.

Sometimes, though, he is not at all morbid, but simply cold and inhumanly callous; it's as though he were alternating between two characters.
Иногда, впрочем, вовсе не ипохондрик, а просто холоден и бесчувствен до бесчеловечия, право, точно в нем два противоположные характера поочередно сменяются.

It has pitilessly torn asunder the motley feudal ties that bound man to his ’natural superiors’, and has left remaining no other nexus between man and man than naked self-interest, than callous ’cash payment’.
Она безжалостно разорвала пестрые феодальные нити, связывавшие человека с его повелителями, и не оставила между людьми никакой связи, кроме голого интереса, бессердечного «чистогана».
