Khan's thinking and reasoning is explained without the need for any mental gynmnastics.
Bullshit.

The only reason Khan doesn't beam Kirk up and snap his neck is because the script requires it. The whole movie Khan simply couldn't wait to kill Kirk and then right at the end he decides "just kidding!"

KHAN (on viewscreen): Surely I have made my meaning plain. I mean to avenge myself upon you, Admiral. I've deprived your ship of power and when I swing round I mean to deprive you of your life. But I wanted you to know first who it was who had beaten you.
KHAN: First things first, Captain. ...Kill Admiral Kirk.
KHAN (on intercom): Kill him, Terrell, now!
