I know the jedi were tricked but the jedi did start the clone wars yoda lead the clones into war. I think all that palps has to say is that the jedi started a war thats the reason to get rid of them plus give me even more power I will prevent any more wars. The jedi were meant to keep peace in the republic but yet they started a war.The jedi were part of the core of the republic they had power frame them and this leaves power with one man. This one man gets more power to prevent more wars gets rid of the jedi who started the war,we now have the empire. You could call this a spoiler but I did not get it form the internet I got it form the five movies we have already. Remember the end of attack of the clones yoda says this is not victory. Am I wrong I dont think so it all fits into place.
