  1. the barrels had to be handled with care, since a spark or other source of heat could cause the contents to combust. • Powder keg is also a metaphorical term sometimes used when referring to countries or geographical regions where political, socio-economic, and historical circumstances have made the area prone to outbursts of wars or other conflicts. The analogy is drawn from a perception that certain territories may seem peaceful and dormant until a minor event triggers a large outburst of violence.[1][2] The term is most often used to simplify and help the understanding of what many times is a complex set of circumstances that lead to conflicts (see diagram of World War I Powder Keg[3]).
