Re: Naruto Manga Chapter 587 Discussions and 588 Predictions
Itachi says he failed because he didn't accomplish what he wanted. Everyone praised Itachi to the sky and back because he was an Uchiha prodigy. Kishimoto has comfirmed that Itachi was rarely surprised by anything and was able to come up with plans for the things that did.

(Cowardice) When dealing with massacre, there may have been a way to prevent it, but he didn't even search for an alternative. He only made a choice between what his clan wanted versus what Danzo wanted, not forging his own path. (Cowardice) When dealing with Sasuke, Itachi didn't trust that Sasuke would become strong enough without his older brother's interference. (Arrogance)
During his battle with Naruto and Bee, Itachi gained a dose of Naruto. Itachi realized that he had to acknowledge his true self and accept it before he can help others. This is what he is trying to do for Kabuto. Itachi doesn't want another person (Sasuke) to make the same mistakes he did. I believe that through Kabuto, Itachi wants Sasuke to learn this same lesson.
Even though Itachi can pwn people on the battle field, he doesn't have the same awesomeness when it comes to other aspects of life.
I've been thinking the same thing. I have been having a sneaking suspicion that Kishimoto might pull a DBZ and truly bring back characters from the dead.

I have a feeling that Madara will still be around. Naruto and Sasuke may tag team against him or something. Who knows? :shrug:
