The Syrian government offensive against the former rebel stronghold Qusair comes ahead of a peace conference next month aimed at bringing both sides in the conflict to the negotiating table.
叙利亚政府军队叛军曾驻扎的据点库萨发动攻势,而下月双方将举行和平会谈,目的是让交战双方走到谈判桌上来。

Some observers believe the two events are related.
有观察家称这两件事是相关联的。

Oraib Al-Rantawi, "I think the negotiation has started. What we witnessed in al Qusair and other areas is part of the negotiation by fire."
“我认为协商已经开始,我们在al Qusair等地目睹的是以交火表现的协商的一部分。”

The seemingly rapid setback for rebel forces in the key city, a gateway for the government to push farther north and east, challenges an assumption that the collapse of President Bashar al-Assad's government is imminent - or even inevitable.
库萨是一重要城市,是政府向北部和东部推进的关口,叛军在这里似乎很快受挫,之前人们揣测总统巴沙尔·阿萨德政府倒台在即,甚至无法避免,而现在又让人怀疑这一点了。

Al-Rantawi believes the rebels can regroup. But he said their position at the negotiating table has been weakened just as they believe they might be getting greater material help from abroad.
Al-Rantawi认为叛军还会重整力量,但他说,由于叛军认为自己可能从国外获得更多物资,因此他们在谈判桌上的地位就减弱了。

"The regime succeeded to send -- and its allies, of course -- to send a message that if you want to put an end to this conflict by military means you have to go through a very painful, very long, very costly process and there is no guarantee you will win," Al-Rantawi said.
“阿萨德政权及其盟友成功释放这么一个信号,那就是,如果想通过军事手段结束这场冲突,就必须经历非常痛苦、漫长过程和花费高昂的成本,因此并不存在获胜的保证。”
