    Mugabe vows to sell Zimbabwe's diamonds
    Published Date: 14 July 2010

    Zimbabwe's president Robert Mugabe has said his nation will sell its massive reserves of diamonds, despite not receiving authorisation from the world's diamond control body.
    A defiant Mugabe yesterday told MPs diamond sales have "huge potential" to revive the shattered economy. He said Zimbabwe can account for one-fourth of the world's diamond supply.

    The Kimberley Process diamond certification scheme has not authorised international sales amid allegations of killings, human rights violations and corruption in the massive diamond fields discovered in eastern Zimbabwe in 2006.

    "No-one should doubt our resolve to sell our diamonds," Mugabe said at the ceremonial opening of the Parliament in Harare.

    Criticism by Western nations and human rights groups deadlocked a Kimberley Process meeting in Israel last month that sought approval for the sales. Mugabe said Western adversaries wanted "absurd" conditions to block diamond sales.

    Question: where was all the ''human rights' out cry when Charles Taylor was stealing all of Liberia's diamonds? oh that's right, he was ''authorized'' by the US to do so!:10500:

    You should see the comments on the film's Facebook page. It's amazing how some people get 'convenient amnesia'.

    Because they know there is nothing rare about diamonds and if Mugabe sells his country's reserve: The price diamonds will go down,other countries might follow suite, the rappers might wake up, causing the Jews to lose money.

    Imagine if the value of diamond went down that each person could afford their own trinket -- these very natural resources that people rob, steal and kill for. Imagine if they had little to no monetary value. I would be happy for that day and if the same would happen for some of the other resources currently reserved for the rich and propped up by the wealthy as "must-have" items.

    Killings, human rights violations and corruption never stopped the US and Europe from selling African diamonds but when Africans want to sell their own diamonds all of sudden the West is the moral authority. Get ourra here.
