Added DiffLines:

* HonorBeforeReason: Admiral Roebuck and the Defense Secretary mull their course of action after the ''Devonshire'' is apparently sunk by the Chinese, and insist on a full retaliation even as M is actively protesting that they don't have all the facts. When Bond presents the paper regarding the sailors who had been murdered after surviving the sinking, they immediately deploy the Navy, leaving M only a scant window of opportunity to prove China's innocence.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Against M's protests, Admiral Roebuck orders a premature missile strike against the terrorist base Bond is presently infiltrating. Bond refuses to withdraw, and by the time they realize it's because there are a pair of ''nuclear torpedoes'' on site, the missile is too far out of range to be aborted. If not for Bond, they would've inadvertently triggered a nuclear disaster on the edge of Russia.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Carver prints and distributes the story of the sailors' deaths within barely ''three hours'' of their actual recovery by Vietnamese authorities. Carver certainly got the reaction he was counting on from the British, but he also attracts the attention of MI6 who hadn't even gotten wind of the murders when the story broke out. Not helping Carver is the fact that MI6 discovered one of his satellites interfering with the GPS system when the vessel was reported lost.

* FakingTheDead: On the stealth boat, Bond kills a mook and then holds his body out in the line of fire. As it's nighttime and they're outside the boat, the other mooks can't tell who they're shooting, allowing Bond to drop the mook and make it seem as if they killed him.

When his colleagues can't open Bond's armored car to get an item they need, he is ordered to get the information from Bond.
