Re: Naruto Manga Chapter 541 Discussion and 542 Predictions
While in war you want to have many different options at your disposal and one always hopes for the best; sometimes that is not always the situation. Let me give you another example of what I mean by death ground. D-day invasion on the Normandy coast. Your listening to the bullets wizing and clinking on the side of your boat as you pull up to the shore. The gate falls down, half of your platoon falls, do you stay and get mowed down by German machine guns or do you leave and storm the beach, through the barbed wire, through the land mines, and up the cliffs past the machine guns and tanks? These are the logical options, you could try and swim back to england but, you would be killed in the process, you could run along side the coast, and be captured or blown up by a mine. But this is the meaning of death ground. Limited logical options, extremely dire situation where your life is literally on the line. The naruto universe is on death ground. Now this is what the Rakage is up against.

You have giving him many different ways of keeping this ninja calm from the Intel that you have received on this ninja.
You have tried "tricking him" by giving him a top-secret mission. You have attempted to distract him by having him train how to control the 9-tails. You have even attempted talking to him directly about the situation, twice now, and all of these ways have failed.
Now after all of that he is still making a break for it the only real option left that they haven't tried is force and though I fundamentally disagree on murdering an innocent person; if it meant sparing the world or having it all end, I am not going to lie I would probably do it.
As for your idea with uniting with naruto and putting all your faith in him, I think this is going to happen anyway, but this is a HUGE gamble for the shnobi alliance. I mean all tobi has to do is create a diversion and teleport away with both b and naruto and this war for the right of free will and to the right not be enslaved nor destroyed is lost.
I will concede something to you though; It would be very unwise to kill naruto. Even if it buys you a short time before the 9 tails is back you are in a worse off position because it is unsealed and is running wild for anybody to take it. At least with naruto you have a somewhat reasonable and powerful ninja that you could potentially still utilize if he was properly trained to take orders.
