If someone had smashed down the walls of your home in an attack that had killed your son, would you be eager for an alliance with them, even if said smashing down of walls was ultimately your fault? No, I don't think so. So why should posters repeatedly label him as stupid just for refusing an alliance with the people he hated.
He was a nasty, ill-made spiteful creature full of envy and low cunning, but he was his own man and it is hardly surprising he rejected Stark's peace.
What does infuriate me is that he offered the Lannisters an alliance later on. They hurt you too, bro!
Btw, this isn't Ned-bashing or Stark-bashing, just so you all know.
