    One more strike could bring down the government.

    bring down (someone or something) // bring (someone or something) down
    to cause (someone or something) to fall down onto the ground
    ▪ The deer was brought down by a single shot.
    ▪ The plane was brought down by enemy fire.
    —often used figuratively
    ▪ The government was brought down by a vote of no confidence.
    ▪ a famous politician who was brought down by scandal
