** Plus, they're kind of running a ''major international crime'' out of that building as well. It's a laboratory not even Carver's wife is supposed to know about, with the clear implication that the stealth ship, the drill, and the satellites used in the operation are being designed and at least partially built there. Calling the police on Bond leads to the police asking the reasonable question of what Bond was doing there in the first place, which potentially leads the police towards further, more awkward questions about what exactly Carver and his crew are up to. Carver has plenty of reason not to what the police around in his operations.

** He implies that he engineered the Mad Cow Disease scare because a British beef magnate wouldn't pay up a bet. Doesn't seem that outrageous by comparison.

** MI6 was onto Carver because they had traced the signal that had set the 'Devonshire'' off course to one of his satellites. It was Bond who commented on the newspaper and found the timing odd, but even if he hadn't M was already planning on sending him to spy on Carver via his wife. So, while it was a foolish and ego-driven move, printing the story early was not the "only" reason they were onto him at all.

*** It pretty clearly isn't, as the missile exploding is what takes out Carver's ship at the end, and while the blast obviously isn't nuclear (not that it exploding like that would cause a nuclear reaction) there's no mention of contamination of any sort or radiation concerns.

** Bond knows too much - and, in police custody, he could still contact MI6 for aid and to relay information.

Added DiffLines:

* Carver's plan would've worked perfectly if he had bothered to set up some ''reason'' why his media outlets learned about this story long before official stories did. MI6 was ''only'' onto Carver because his newspaper ran the story before the official sources had even announced that anything had happened. For that matter, it wouldn't have gone nearly as far as it did if Bond didn't tip Carver off the first time they meet.
** Carver ''did'' have a cover story of getting his information from the Vietnamese government. It's just it was too quick to be believable. Carver's impatience was his undoing.
