¦ P L O T ¦
¦Diamonds are symbols of wealth, elegance and love around ¦
¦the world. But in several African nations, they have been a¦
¦means to power, a reason to terrorize millions of innocent ¦
¦civilians, and may have even helped finance some of the ¦
¦world's most brutal terrorists. The human cost of the ¦
¦illicit global diamond trade is examined in the provocative¦
¦documentary. ¦
¦ ¦
¦Because they are portable, easily concealed, and ¦
¦untraceable, diamonds lend themselves to smuggling and ¦
¦corruption. In several underdeveloped African nations, ¦
¦warlords have used diamonds to help finance wars, while the¦
¦rest of the world has turned a blind eye. Rebel armies have¦
¦forced tens of thousands of people to mine diamonds in ¦
¦brutal, dangerous conditions under the threat of death, ¦
¦their pay as paltry as a cup of rice per day. In Sierra ¦
¦Leone, rebels chopped off people's hands, arms, feet, ¦
¦lips, and ears indiscriminately for years during a civil ¦
¦war financed in part by the trade of illicit diamonds. ¦

¦This is one of, if not the best documentary I have ever ¦
¦seen. If you are reading this, just download and watch the ¦
¦the first 10 minutes of it. I guarantee you will be hooked.¦
