Added DiffLines:

*** Kamal does not necessarily need to buy into Orlov's belief of classical communism to consider working with him. Soviet (and American) leadership in general has historically shown itself to be pragmatic as necessary during the Cold War - Kamal may be thinking that Orlov is just wrong and expects his vision to fail, or that he expects to be able to cut deals with other parts of the revised order as necessary (if the Soviet model really worked as advertised, the "some are more equal than others" quip wouldn't work). As far as the risk of nuclear retaliation from the West, again differing mental calculations between Orlov and Kamal can explain it - Kamal, not being based in Europe, has a higher risk tolerance for nuclear exchange there since he is more likely to gain and less likely to lose materially (Orlov's calculations appear to be different in thinking that Western Europe would rather have Soviet overlords above their heads than nuclear fallout).

Added DiffLines:

* FridgeBrilliance: Bond telling a tiger to "sit" - and it does. It may seem like DeusExMachina until you realize it's a ''tamed'' tiger and Bond did his best Kamal impression.
