Blood Diamonds

Recommended Posts

you do understand that a treaty was signed. So it seems the status quo would solve this back

The Kimberley Process was indeed (functionally) acceeded to by the US with the Clean Diamonds Act in 2003. The problem is, it's a voluntary process that doesn't always work. There are still blood diamonds on the market; the plan would essentially throw money and experts at the problem to enforce the CDA better.

 

I stopped cutting this aff when I realized it was even less topical than Landmines.

From what I can see, the thing will give you a U.S. commerce advantage or something like that, I really wanted this file just so I could say diamonds aren't a large funder of conflicts. Really the neg is nice but, I'd role with some drugs fund conflict alt-cause, because the conflict advantage would keel over at that point.
