Think about it, in the few past games It was imporntant to Ubisoft to highlight the fact that Either of the characters we played actually choose to live the lives they lived.

*Altair - replied to his "beloved mentor" that he can't regret the only life he ever known.
*Ezio - In revelations he says something similar to " I didn't choose the life I live" , and of course his path was caused because of his family death.
*Connor - followed the message of Juno, making him an Assassin.

You may say that Juno in someway wanted Connor to be an Assassin and fight the Templars so Desmond could find the key, or it was a way to keep the war going - not letting either of the sides to find the Grand Templar on the right time - leaving the only choice of bringing her back.

Juno also mentioned that she was caculating a Path for Connor - showing the high possibilty that she has enough knowledge to know how to change what needed in order to keep the war going on - she might have done the same by sorting things causing Ezio's family death.

This is exactly what juno intended on happening. She wanted to ensure that "sanctuary" wasn't breached early, that way when desmond does access it, he has no choice but to free her.

You do have a lot of points there, and such a theory is indeed very possible...all left is for the devs to confirm or take-in this theory.

I think that idea stood out to me as well when I finished the game. I think there's a good chance that Juno did manipulate Templars and Assassins, in order to gain control over the world because she knew if she could drag it on just long enough she could be set free. AC3 kind of brought back that whole blurring-the-line thing that AC1 had going on, regarding Templars and Assassins, and what exactly it is that they want and their means of achieving it, which I think also supports the notion that maybe they were just told different things by Juno which led them to clash.
Honestly, I think that's why this game was the most tragic to me. We see Connor lose everything he really fought for, and all she tells him is like, "Good job. You think you accomplished nothing...well, that's okay, you got me what I needed."
In fact, I think is the real reason that a lot of people didn't like this game or at least the ending. People realized that everything they did as Altair, but most especially Ezio and Connor (since they actually interact with TWCB) was all in vain, in a way. Everything they lost, everything they gained almost felt like it was for nothing. I think this is part of the reason people didn't like Desmond's ending...
I kind of like this theory though, partly because it's more on the dark and realistic side but also because I think as humans we search for a sense of purpose and people don't to think that maybe we really just don't have one.
