"Blood Diamonds" are valued stones mined at gunpoint by slaves and prisoners for the later wealth of the ones holding the weapons.

I believe if the KPCS keeps doing the hard amounts of work to make sure the blood diamonds dont make it to the legitimate markets, then the problems will be resolved soon, hopefully, atleast by 2015. I believe it will take many years to get rid of all the illegal mines, but through all the hard work i should be possible.
