Previous Post

Littlefinger was feeding Ned info about Robert's bastards all through season one, which was leading Ned to the realization that Robert's kids were really Jamie's kids. That put Ned on Cersei's radar and accelerated her murder of the king. Littlefinger really did start it all. He may not have intended for his actions to result in Robert's murder, but he sure didn't mind.

The only cause of the war he didn't influence or predict was Jamie's attack on Bran. But he capitalized on it by helping Joffrey with the second attack on Bran.

...his opportunistic actions as those of a mastermind that had foreseen it all from day 1.

As I said, he was obviously just going with the flow, not orchestrating every major event that escalated things to open war. And even if I can't convince you about the opening Lannister-Stark war, he could not have possibly expected the factions and forces that are currently the major players on Westeros. Even if you take the NK out, Cersei and Jon ended up in power by impossible events, and, to my best recollection, more importantly, Daenerys is not there because of anything he did.

If you wanna talk about important characters that actually deserved to be there for the Iron Throne stuff, Tywin more or less started it all...
