He really is. I just love hating this guy. He is evil, but its a calculated natural/realistic evil. He isn't "I don't like the world so I am going to watch it burn muahahaha" evil. There is just this cold calculating personality that draws from his family history and his knowledge of whats going on around him that quite frankly frightens me. Love this guy as a villain.

Precisely! He's a cold, calculated evil, and perhaps the most interesting thing about him is that he doesn't have feelings of any kind; as Lady Dustin said about him, he cares not for any soul, but rather sees every person as a pawn in the game he is playing

Well look at it from Robbs view. "Are you evil?" "Yes, I'm evil" ".....Do you like me?" "Yes" "Do you like the lannisters?" "No, not really. Though they'd make a fine coat"

Better the monster on your side. But boy does this backfire...

And Robb did try to weaken him by sending him to fight the Lannisters on the "Twyin Front", cant remember where that was exactly. So Robb was actually fairly aware of Roose's possible intentions, but it was just bad move to not make Roose take more of his army with him on campaign, which would have weakened his forces and left him complacent. Just, poor Robb man, he was one of my favorites and he didn't even need his own point of view chapter!

Robb was an idiot from to very beginning to the very end . Joffrey gets Ned beheaded , Robb's reaction : Challenge Tywin and want to capture Casterly Rock . An unexperienced young Kinglet against the overlord of war , anihilator of two Houses , most experienced man in the art of war .
Simple proof :
You have an " ally " by your side , and you're unsure of his true loyalty
Robb : Send him fight your ennemy to eventually get him killed , at least keep him far from you , don't think he could directly come back WITH your ennemy if he changes side right on the battlefield .
Tywin : Keep you friends close and your ennemies closer in order to keep an eye on them ...
Robb was going to die , it was quite obvious , not as obvious as Roose being an evil man though :D

You gotta love Roose :XD:

Well to be fair Rob didn't have much experience or many options and most of his council's opinions involved smashing things with swords and hoping it works out. Also he couldn't have outright said to Bolton " I don't like you! To the noose!"

He hadn't much experience indeed , but instead of taking that in account , he just declared war on the most powerful family of Westeros thinking " imma king in the north , let's send thousands of men to death for " honour " and hope something will happen " . 
He couldn't , but if he was clever , he could've make sure he remained at safe distance , or discretely dispose of him .

True, and I agree assassination should have been the answer, but don't forget he had literally half of the country on his side. I think he should have just maybe done something to hold the borders but I think you might get my point. And yes 'honor' was the looser (and totally dumb) but he had to make some show to impress his banner men.
