Well, that would be one way of looking at it. But you are assuming that things were intended to happen the way that they did. I happen not to believe that, but you can certainly differ with me on that.

There is also a difference between knowing something and deciding something. I wouldn't doubt that Eru knew everything that would happen, but that does not mean that he decided that himself. The decision that I think he made was to step back and allow everyone's free will to run its course.

And don't forget that at the End everything will be righted.
