Order 66 questions

So Order 66 was the order given by palpatine aka lord sidius to flip a "switch" in the clones to make them betray the jedi. At least I think it is...so I have a couple questions

1. Were the clones just acting all throughout the clone wars tv shows?
2. Are the clones consisidered evil?
3. Have they always known they were going to betray the Jedi eventually?
4. How could the Jedi not sense a plot to destroy all Jedi by the clones. I mean if they are supposedly weak minded aka "these aren't the droids you're looking for..move along" wouldn't the Jedi or Yoda feel a certain doom coming from the clones?

Yeah that's basically it...if u have anymore questions about it feel free to ask

1. No

2. No

3. Probably not, it was pretty much a contingency plan if the jedi did do something against the Republic, which the odds of that actually happening would be none.

4. They did, but by that time it was too late Yoda only survived because he sensed all the other jedi dying.

In other words, the clones were not evil or acting as they were just following orders and doing what they were told. Some of them knew it was wrong, but they didn't do anything about and those that did were killed soon after.

Not all the clones ever heard of order 66. Only the commander's I believe even knew of it.
2. Are the clones consisidered evil?
They were designed to follow orders without question not really there fault.
3. Have they always known they were going to betray the Jedi eventually?
Nope,but there was always a "back up" plan to kill them all if they betrayed the republic.
4. How could the Jedi not sense a plot to destroy all Jedi by the clones. I mean if they are supposedly weak minded aka "these aren't the droids you're looking for..move along" wouldn't the Jedi or Yoda feel a certain doom coming from the clones?
Clones weren't really weak minded they they were just untrained against the influence of the force sense the only guys they had to worry about was Count Dooku and Asajj Ventress. Also jedi found it increasingly difficult to see the future since Darth Plagueis corrupted the force. Only when jedi started dying they started to sense something was off

Thats it.

No, their only priority is to protect the Republic, whereas the jedi are a part of it, but not literally merged within it.
2. Are the clones consisidered evil?

No. They're just following orders.
3. Have they always known they were going to betray the Jedi eventually?

There's a large chance that the answer is a no. They're just "protecting" the Republic, as that is their priority, even if it includes the death of Jedi.
4. How could the Jedi not sense a plot to destroy all Jedi by the clones. I mean if they are supposedly weak minded aka "these aren't the droids you're looking for..move along" wouldn't the Jedi or Yoda feel a certain doom coming from the clones?

They could sense that something was wrong, yet they were not certain of it. Before they were able to make up their mind, the clones turned on the Jedi in the climax of the clone wars.

Order 66 was one of many executive orders that dictated how the clone troopers would respond in certain situations. Order 66 was to deal with the Jedi in the event they became enemies of the Republic. Order 65 called for the Clone Troopers to remove the Chancellor himself from power, should he pose a threat to the Republic.

Jedi vs. Sith, Page 97, column 2, paragraph 4, line 1:

Prior to the Battle of Ruusan, the Jedi used crystals from many different sources, and ignited lightsabers in every known hue, including purple, orange, and gold.

The Clones were bred to obey orders from their superiors no matter what. That's why they turned on the Jedi.

Normally I'd agree with you, but in this instance I think its fair to point out that the Clones were not just ordered to execute the Jedi because they were Jedi. The Order 66 was intended to remove the Jedi in the event they betrayed the Republic. As far as the Clones new, they were attacking an enemy of the Republic. One that was potentially capable of being a serious threat.

Its a minor distinction, I know, especially given that the Clones attacked the Jedi without evidence of their betrayal or any indication that the entire order was a threat. I guess I am just feeling the need to play devils advocate.

I also believe there were the rare clones that didn't turn on the jedi, it shows that not all clones follow orders blindly, its not like they are mind controlled, they just obey without question most of the time.

99% of the clones show little free-thinking ability or any desire to think for themselves, but they can't be as bad as droids (thats the whole point) so they have this middleground of obedience and free-thinking. However some clones are more individual than others.
