I think the question is not about any argument within the context of the film as shown...it's about whether it needed to be written that way in the first place.

I think most of the complaints are pretty baseless, but I think exploiting the sex slavery trade, which is very much in the public consciousness right now, and then offing the victim of such a trade so carelessly, without any comment in the film of the tragedy of the situation, is kind of crass.
What you call "crass" many would call "keeping it current".

"Tomorrow Never Dies" dealt with media manipulation and "yellow journalism", and "Die Another Day" dealt with "conflict diamonds".
