Ned was showcasing some Bond villain levels of dumbass with that move right there.
True, I wouldn't have done what he did either, but I see where he was coming from. Telling Robert the truth instead of telling Cersei to bounce ASAP=guaranteeing that innocent children and Joffrey are put to death. I mean in that type of world you have to put your and your family's survival over doing the right thing, and Ned did the exact opposite. That type of threat works with normal people, not with people with people with that much $ and power behind them
