Re: Obito was not scared of Itachi
and I respect you and your thoughts, but....Obito was not scared of Itachi....did he trust him? no. Were they cautious of each other? yes. Did they respect each other? Yes.

When people make vs threads with Itachi, they always act like KA is a sure thing....if it misses, he won't be able to use it again in years time. Obito was even able to dodge the mind-body switch technique from behind....this is an invisible tech mind you. If he can dodge that so easily, who's to say that he can't dodge KA?
Not to mention bringing up KA is like bringing up the juubi as part a characters arsenal.....KA isn't Itachi's ability and yet everyone puts their faith in it and overrate Itachi because of it. Without KA, Itachi would be outmatched in taijutsu, and I already gave evidence in my previous comments as ways that Obito can counter every move of Itachi's.
Itachi doesn't even know about Izanagi, which would catch him off guard like it did with Konan. He could fool him into believing he was sealed and stab him from behind.
Itachi doesn't know about kamui and doesn't really have anything to counter against it which can outmaneuver his susanoo and pass its defense. Minato at least had FTG to surprise a 15 year old Obito. Obito isn't an idiot and cannot be outsmarted so easily.
People always keep bringing up that Itachi is the smartest person ever, but that's not true. We don't know that...his calm and cool personality is what fools people into believing that assumption. He's not the only character with good analytical skills....but if we're basing intelligence of feats from the manga, Obito certainly has more.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying Itachi can't win against Obito. I love Itachi, he's one of my favorite characters, but it's frustrating as how much people overrate him...it's ridiculous. Is it likely that he can win on average? No. Is it possible for him to win against Obito? Yeah. But Obito stands a better chance.
Would Kishi really make a character to be one of the central, most important villains, who is pretty much the "dark naruto" weaker than his subordinate? I highly doubt it. Villains tend to be the most powerful, until the main heroes surpass them.
