The great Powers must therefore supervise and control such efforts and nip in the bud the possibility of such weapons falling into the hands of groups or States that have no respect for human life.
Поэтому великим державам надлежит держать подобные усилия под надзором и контролем и в корне пресекать любую возможность попадания таких вооружений в руки группировок или государств, не питающих никакого уважения к человеческой жизни.

Разумеется, очень полезно вовремя менять снасти, присматривать за мачтами и даже за якорным канатом, но, будь я проклят, пастор, если я понимаю, зачем… Ложись на другой галс, ложись, болван! Не видишь, что держишь курс на Германию?..

Word had reached Albany of dubious import; it had been rumoured some hostility was to be put in act; and the Indian diplomatist had, thereupon, sped into the wilderness, even at the approach of winter, to nip that mischief in the bud.
До Олбени дошли слухи, допускавшие разное толкование; говорили О том, что готовятся враждебные выступления индейцев, и их умиротворитель поспешил в глубь лесов, несмотря на приближающуюся зиму, чтобы подавить зло в самом корне.
