Ces terminologies, évoquées quasi systématiquement pour décrire les contextes complexes de l'aide internationale par des acteurs très différents, présents ou non sur le terrain (médias, politiques, agences Onusiennes, ONG,...) sont des raccourcis qui ne correspondent souvent qu'à leur vision très partielle, pour ne pas dire partiale d'un périmètre circonscrit. Les situations de crise chronique évoluent parfois très rapidement.

He said they stole all they could carry and raped the occupants - women, children and men alike.
