And I don't even want to pick at Talia's rationale since (if I remember the film right) she's desttoying Gotham to avenge her father............a father she doesn't even seem to show much affection for because of what he did. She doesn't even have his belief in burning Gotham to cleanse it and allow a rebuild. She just wants to blow it up.
They seem to have no real plan for afterwards. At least R'as had something in mind.
I do agree that there doesn't seem much point in their plan. Let Gotham run wild for five months and then blow it up. To what end?
