What the F happened to the Suna Ninja?
Throughout part 1, the suna ninja were way more kick-ass than konoha. They saved everyone's ass on more than 1 occasion. But we get to part two, and they all get the tar beaten out of them. Examples:
-Sasori beats Kankuro~ Sasori gets killed by konoha's #1 most useless ninja and and old lady
-Gaara gets beat by Deidara~ The leaf Ninja kick his ass
-Temari becomes a wind master~ Naruto has Wind release

WTF?!! Did they just sit and pick their noses for 3 years?!!
