You do realize those diamond mining companies are American owned by companies and lines like zales and hearts on fire right? I have a family member who managed an international jewlery store. Almost every single jewlrey store in america sells dirty diamonds.

And those civil wars are a result of european colonialism. But I'll give you the aids thing. They are pretty nasty over there.

Ever seen Hotel Rwanda?

There are some dirt deals going on but on the majority Africans are killing Africans for idiotic reasons.
