ADMIRAL ROEBUCK:

- I'll be sure to acknowledge 007's

'assistance' in my report to the

Prime Minister. But this is, still,

a naval operation.

M:

What do they say in Russia, General

Bukharin?

(asks questions in

flawless Russian)

The general chuckles. Translates:

GENERAL BUKHARIN

'In a joint operation, someone's nose

always gets put out of joint.'

M turns to Admiral Roebuck:

M:

I'm interested in success, Admiral.

Not who gets credit.

(turning to:
)

Mr. Tanner:
What have we got?

Tanner points to the video wall with a RED LASER PEN.

TANNER:

(ironically)

A regular terrorist swap meet. Death

at discount:
Two Chinese Long March

Scuds, a pair of Soviet A-17 attack

helicopters -

BUKHARIN:

(interrupting)

Stolen -

TANNER:

And the crates look like American M-16

assault rifles, Chilean antipersonnel

mines, six French Exocet missiles, and

75 - no maybe a hundred - kilograms of

Czech made C-4 Semtech explosive.

(beat)

Something for everyone. Fun for the

whole family.

M:

(freezing him with a glance)

What about ID's?

TANNER:

(pushes a button on a console)

One to seven:
Deal the face cards.

THE ROCK OUTCROPPING -

Bond adjusts a knob on the scope.

MI-6 SITUATION ROOM -

On the video-screen, the picture zooms to a CLOSE UP of one of the

arms traders. Tanner presses a button, and - almost instantly - the

man's bio and vitals appear on another video screen.

TANNER:

Gustav Meinholtz. Neo-Nazi, former

East German STASI agent. Ties to the

Beider-Meinhoff gang.

(pressing a button)

Aces high, seven. Bid to the east.

Bond shifts his aim, east. (Intercut as necessary) He zeroes in on

another face, and the man's stats appear in London.

TANNER:

Vilko Barkoviac. Bosnian war

criminal; thought to be operating

freelance out of Teheran.

(pressing a button)

Full house, seven. Bid to the North.
