** Camille uses Dominic Greene to get to Medrano.
*** To do this, she tried to pay off one of his geologists to sell her information, possibly on Medrano's location.
*** And in an almost karmic way, Greene catches wind of this and kills the geologist, and sends a different geologist/mook to intercept Camille and kill her.
*** And on top of that, after Camille survives and Medrano shows up to the pier, Greene offers her to Medrano and all but requests him to rape her and kill her.
** M throughout the film accuses Bond of this, from his failure to bring back suspects alive to getting total innocents killed. She even accuses him of killing Guy Haines' bodyguard (which he didn't) to getting Fields killed (though she isn't entirely wrong about this).

At some point after conversing with Fields and some other guests, Carlos lures Mathis to the parking lot and has him beaten near-death by his officers. He then shoves Mathis into the trunk of Bond's car and later has his officers shoot Mathis to death, ''all'' so they can pin his death on Bond.
** And just to show how even the most insignifact character can be prone to this, it shows Bond and Camille trading in th car to a lone Bolivian farmer for his cargo plane. While in the air, Bond realizes that the car wasn't exactly enough, and anticipates that the farmer will try to earn himself a healthy sum of money by selling out their location to Quantum. Given that three Quantum mooks show up a mere forty seconds later, it's safe to assume that he ''did''.
