Simple. Bane is still the most powerful non-Batman person in the room. You don't go "oh, well Batman broke the powerful guy's mask, so lets have some weaker people watch Batman now." Its a simple practical decision.

His motivation isn't really relevant here.

Risk was minimal, but somehow Batman still saved Gotham. Like I said, Batman had already overcome every obstacle they put in his path, including disrupting the bomb's signal. Of course they weren't going to take any chances, regardless of how soon the bomb would go off.

I agree that an immobilized and stabbed Batman would have been unable to stop a recovered Bane. That actually only serves to prove my argument is correct.

True. But this is the only instance ever of Talia telling Bane to do something in the film. Ever, as far as we know. And Bane disregards it, despite his supposed "puppydog love" for Talia. So what does that tell us about Bane? What do we know about him, given the limited knowledge at our disposal?

There is absolutely no evidence in the film that Talia was the leader. None. The only reason people think that is because of one interaction between her and Bane. Your statement here is pure conjecture and not suggested by anything in the film (which actually suggests that Bane is the leader, IMO, as he is frequently shown giving orders).

I don't see how it is the same principle at all. I think you are greatly stretching the parallel.
