There are so many shocking things these days...

that we all are overlooking one important piece of news about Venezuela:
as The Guardian reports, the United Nations has expelled Venezuela from the Kemberley process of nonblood diamonds. What does that mean? For many years now the Venezuelan government has not provided information about where its diamonds are going. That means Venezuela could be using the diamond revenues to finance illegal arm conflicts somewhere. Could you think of any such group the Venezuelan government might be financing?
