But then there wouldn't be a final fight or a cool action scene for the film sooooooooo.
It's pretty premeditated, but I can see why Batman setting Ra's up would upset people. It goes either way, it really isn't too clean.
And lets face it, it's not like Batman denies the fact when Talia says that he quote on quote, "murdered him". LOL Batman doesn't say, "no I didn't", he pretty much says, "I had to kill him to save millions of innocent people, I had to".
