digging in their heels 和 整句意思
Greek-Cypriot "no" voters felt that the plan filed to guarantee adequate restitution ofr 160,000 or more people forced south by the 1974 invasion and let too many Turkish troops - 6000, as opposed to he present 30,000 - remain on the island, under a withdrawal ploan whose execution was not guaranteed.
從 as opposed to .....到最後not guaranteed.這邊看不懂
To many Turkish-Cypriots, it seemed as if their neighbours were selfishly digging in their heels, refusing to share power and money, when their bit of the island was on the brink of raking in all the benefits of EU entry.
digging in their heel是什麼意思？我查不到！
還有最後面的on the brink of raking in all the benefits也麻煩一下
為什麼as opposed to the present 30000是那個意思？
