* General Orlov and Kamal Khan's EvilPlan is to blow up a US Air Force base with a [[NukeEm nuclear bomb]], thereby causing Western Europe to opt for disarmament, leaving Russia with the advantage... by using Octopussy's circus as a cover. With thousands of civilians at the base watching it. What's worse? There are ''[[AdultFear children]]'' in the audience. And Orlov, in Bond's words, doesn't give a damn.

Added DiffLines:

*** With literally half a second to spare. When most bombs are stopped at one, your heart will stop a moment.

Added DiffLines:

**** Except that an investigation would reveal the exact location of the explosion, which would be nowhere near where the base would keep their nukes, and analysis might even reveal where the fissionable material came from.

Added DiffLines:

*** Against whom? Their early warning systems would rule out a nuclear missile from Russia.


** As General Gogol points out, Western Europe / NATO probably wouldn't disarm. They would strike back. Orlov's plan would basically cause WorldWarIII.
