I feel like between them and Danzo, they are making Konoha corrupt. Do you think he should kill them? Do you think he would be doing Konoha a service by wiping them out of the picture?
They agreed with everything Danzo said, and wanted him to be Kage in the first place. I look at them as the sneaky government... hiding things from the citizens and having secret agendas. If they were killed, do you think Konoha would be better off?
