It does not deserve them, it is a bad book. I am very aware of when the book was written and my comments fully take that into account. The author supposedly did a great deal of research prior to and during the writing of this book. Which is strange as it is not reflected in the actual book, which contains so many factual errors it is a disaster.
The White House, Washington in general and the American political system, the USSR and it's military and intelligence systems, and general world politics, all have gross errors of fact which cannot be explained away as necessary to the book. The list is not exhaustive by the way! This is just bad writing, sloppy writing, from an author who should know better. The book also has large tracts of polemic from the main character on how to improve America. If the author wanted to write a book of essays on how to improve matters then more power to him, I advise reading the non-fiction output of Harlan Ellison and Robert Heinlein for examples of how it can be done.
But in a fiction book this should be undertaken either to move the plot forward or to improve our understanding of the character. Very little of the pontificating in the book does either. And so to the actual story.
