Obi-Wan Was a Powerful Sith and Chessmaster:

"Only a Sith deals in absolutes" a hypocritical Jedi-joke which reinforces their belief of the Sith's evil or a sly hint from the conniving Obi-Wan?

Perhaps Obi-Wan was a Sith who believed strongly in the "might makes right" thing, and, to that end, sought that the most powerful of Sith rule the galaxy.

Evidence:

Anakin: What better way to have Anakin fall to the darkside than have Qui-Gon get killed at the hands of Darth Maul? Then denying Anakin any revenge through killing Maul himself. When he discovered his failure, since Anakin was incapable of ruling the galaxy by Obi-Wan's standards, he goaded Anakin into attacking him through his manipulation of Padme. Hoping to finish Anakin then and there, Palpatine's rescue threw a wrench into his plan.

"From a certain point of view speeches": Luke was powerful. Once Luke discovers his lie, anger and frustration at his teacher's deception will surely arise.

His Defeat: He will become more powerful than Vader can ever imagine? Through his leadership of Luke against Vader, and Luke's rage at seeing his master struck down, Luke will fall to the darkside. Letting himself die may seem to point to the fact that he was not a Sith, seeing as how it goes against the tenets of Sithdom. However, Obi-Wan strongly believed that the strong should rule, and to that end, played the Sith for fools.

When Obi-Wan's plan failed, his force ghost period was a constant argument with Yoda, who had discovered Obi-Wan's plan. When Luke saved the galaxy, the final scene was Yoda's way of rubbing it in.

Obi-Wan must not like competition, as he killed Maul and Grevious.

My theory is that he's actually running both sides while being neither Jedi nor sith.

That Makes All sort of implications none of the other Jedi us that phrase (in the movie) yet Obi-wan seems to know it well.
All of time and space, anywhere and everywhere, any star that ever was. Where do you want to start?

I like this webcomic.
^^ no, in the Star Wars Extended Universe, people who are neither Jedi nor Sith follow a third philosophy, that allows you to teleport yourself and other objects. They also have teleporting ships, that will only fight defensively.

Obi Wan was a Sith, far more than Vergere.

^If only it was that easy to forget who she was. Sigh for me Star Wars ended with the Thrawn Doulogy.
You will never love a women as much as George Lucas hates his fans.

What was so bad about her?

Playing tricks on EVIL!
Why would Anakin want revenge on Darth Maul for the death of Qui-Gon?

Qui-Gon was the one who was willing to trained him Obi-Wan would not train him as by the rules of the council. Obi-Wan would not have trained Anakin if Qui-Gon lived, and was only doing because it was his dying wish.

Not all dreams are meant to come true, otherwise there would be a lot of dead people.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
