Re: Why did the League of Shadows want to destroy a peaceful city?
If Bane was just following orders from Talia then why did he need to be the one to kill Bruce in the end. Why not just hold him there till the bomb went off? With ten minutes left he could have had an underground bunker that could have survived the blast. I know this is just speculation, but him wanting to kill Bruce personally shows him wanting credit for killing Bruce and yet it would not have had it with him also dieing when the bomb went off. He had already beaten Bruce, killing him before the bomb detonating is pointless.
