Nothing that needed diamond tip, no. I understand that whole bit - but its not like we'd be digging in the dirt for resources if we had means to get the diamonds there.

Plus imagine all the job loss on Africa over this. Poor fellows won't be able to happily mine diamonds to put in vaults for North Americans.
